ASICS Gel-Galaxy 8 Running Shoes Breeze through a jog or tackle a half with the ASICS Gel-Galaxy 8. Mesh Upper The upper of the Asics Gel-Galaxy 8 is constructed with mesh which is supported by synthetic overlays to provide a close wrap on the shoe. Mainly focusing on support and comfort, the upper also offers ventilation which keeps the feet feeling cool and dry throughout a run. Inside, there is a removable sockliner that adds to the underfoot comfort. The upper also features a basic lacing system, a padded tongue and heel collar for comfort, and reflective elements to improve visibility in low light conditions. Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System Midsole Equipped in the midsole is the Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System which is a silicone-based cushioning system that provides a lower shock when the heel impacts on the ground offering better cushioning. For extra comfort, a full-length EVA gives the shoe sufficient cushioning and protection. Trusstic System Outsole Embedded in the outsole is the Asics Trusstic System technology which links the rearfoot with the front foot and shores the midfoot as it prepares for propulsion. The outsole features rubber treads and includes the really rough AHAR carbon rubber in the areas prone to wear and tear.
