You’ll love the cushiony, yet supportive feel of ASICS Men’s GEL-Forte Running Shoes with shock-absorbing GEL technology

The GEL-Forte running shoe excels when it comes to lightweight comfort. The GEL® cushioning system in the rearfoot and forefoot absorbs shock as you walk or run. Guidance Line®, a full-length vertical flex groove in the outsole, works with the supportive midfoot Guidance Trusstic System® and stabilizing Dynamic DuoMax® in the midsole to promote a more efficient walking or running stride. The Solyte® midsole provides a combination of durability, stability and cushioning without weighing you down. The synthetic and mesh upper offers a comfortable fit for those with bunions, thanks to soft bunion windows on both sides of the forefoot. Removable insole. Orthotic-Friendly. Recommended for normal arches.

Features & Benefits of ASICS Men’s GEL-Forte Running Shoes:

  • Rearfoot and forefoot GEL cushioning provides shock absorption throughout the walking or running gait cycle.
  • Bunion windows, a soft synthetic material on both sides of the forefoot, help reduce bunion irritation.
  • Lightweight Solyte midsole is firmer on the bottom for durability and stability and softer on top for more cushioning.
  • Less heel to forefoot drop means you’re closer to the ground, which helps improve stability.
  • Dynamic DuoMax, a dual-density support system, enhances stability and support with a lightweight feel.
  • Heel Clutching System™ built on the outside of the upper provides better support and fit at the heel.
  • Guidance Line vertical flex groove in the outsole guides your foot for a more efficient stride.
  • Guidance Trusstic System provides extra arch support.

Great shoes but not what I need.

  • 4 of 5
This is a great shoe for the price. I bought it thinking it would be good for overpronation but wow was I mistaken. I wore the shoe for approx. 15 minutes and hurt so bad I could hardly walk. No fault to the shoe though because I'm sure these just wasn't the ones for me.
