For nearly 30 years, the GT-2000™ series has been the stability shoe of choice for runners ranging from casual weekend warriors to top marathon finishers. If you're looking for a lightweight, cushioned running shoe that's functional for going the distance in wet conditions, the GT-2000™ 9 G-TX (GORE-TEX™) model is an excellent choice. Updated with a one-piece upper construction for an improved fit, the ninth incarnation of the GT-2000™ running shoe secures the top of the foot with a lightweight design and soft comfort. These materials have been reinforced in targeted areas for added support as the foot rolls through the gait cycle, delivering a more efficient toe-off and secure fit. The shoe's upper is also made with recycled materials, while the sockliner is produced with a solution dyeing process that reduces carbon emissions and water usage. GEL® technology cushioning generates excellent shock absorption, while a layer of FLYTEFOAM® material in the midsole creates a softer and more supportive feel at footstrike. Lastly, the GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC® design and DYNAMIC DUOMAX® support system are key technologies that improve stability and provide a more efficient toe-off.
