Full Name: Asics GT 2140
Category: Stability
Weight: 11 oz. (310 gr.)
Suggested Price:100$
Reccomended For: Neutral to Mild Over Pronators
  • General Info:

The Asics GT 2100 series is most likely the world’s best selling Stability shoe. This means that when Asics refreshes it, they have to improve the shoes’ performance but have to stay true to the franchise fit, performance and durability – in other words, they need not to disappoint all the fans worldwide.

  • Sole Unit:

The midsole tooling is new, but has the same basic characteristics as as the GT 2130.
Improved foam material will provide better ‘bounce back’, and to enhance midfoot support, the Space Trusstic System has been lengthened slightly on the medial side, which is meant to provide an even better support during the heel-to-toe transition of your running gait.
Unchanged the use of Asics’ DuoMax dual density technology: an injection of a harder foam in the medial side of the midsole in order to support collapsing arches, while letting the rest of the feet be cushioned by Asics’s Gel technology both in the forefoot and the heel.

  • Upper:

Even though the upper has a complete redesign from last year’s shoe, the last used for the shape of the upper hasn’t been changed – if you fit 2008’s GT (2130), you will fit the same in the 2140.
A good update on the upper is the adoption of a new Ortholite sockliner. Made of Memory Foam, this sockliner adds extra cushioning to your run without compromising the stability of the shoe. The sockliner will adapt to the natural shape of your foot, and get back to its original form after each run.

  • Opinion:

The Asics GT 2140 is a great value for money. If you already run in a GT2000 shoe and wonder if this years’ version will live up to your expectations you won’t be disappointed. If you are a neutral to mild overpronator runner, this shoe is a great option for you.

This is an excellent shoe..and it fits like every shoe in the 2000 series.I am not at all disappointed.You can NEVER wear out that heel or outsole. Asics is the top company anyway..I tried Brooks a couple of times recently..I got samples of the Adrenaline GTS and the Brooks Defyance for a cheap price..they were “OK” but they seem to have this “narrow fit”..I felt that they were too confining (no blisters) but the cushioning/fit did just not measure up to that fine fit and feel I have experienced from Asics for the past 20 yrs. or so.
Asics, keep up the good work!!!
