The GT-2000 early release is a NYC Marathon special edition make that features the Asics GEL many runners love; making it one of the most cushioned structured shoes on the market. The new 2000 has been engineered with premium features like the Guidance Trusstic System and Dynamic DuMax, which gives the 2000 it's "stable" ride without feeling heavy and bulky. It's a great shoe for mild to moderate overpronators.
The GT-1000 early release honors breast cancer awareness month with the first ever matching pink shoes for men and women. The 1000 is like the little brother (or sister) to the 2000; it's a little sleeker and is more performance based. It's a stable ride like the 2000 and has features like the Guidance Line and DuoMax support systems as well as the Asics GEL cushioning systems.
The 1000 weighs in at 10.4oz (men's) vs 12oz with the 2000 (men's).
Women's 2000 weighs 9.9oz while the 1000 weighs 8.7oz (this is why women are generally faster runners than men) :-)
You can check out both shoes at STRIDERS. As new models come in, it's a great time to pick up older models at a discount.
While supplies last, we have tech shirts from ASICS we'll give for FREE with any ASICS shoe purchase.
