SummaryThis is just an overview, not a review. We did not test the Gel Foundation 13 yet.
The Asics Gel Foundation 13 is designed for overpronators and those who use custom orthotics. The shoes have enough cushioning for a daily trainer while supporting wider feet. The comfortable midsole will guide you through your stride as the breathable upper keeps your feet cool.
The midsole features Rearfoot and Forefoot gel cushioning to absorb the harsh shock your feet would otherwise experience. The SpEVA midsole runs the full-length of the midsole to provide you with ample energy return. The dual-density support system reduces overpronation along with the Guidance Trusstic System. For a smooth transition, Asics threw in the Impact Guidance System for a smoother run.
The upper is made with engineered mesh that has been updated from the previous version. You will notice your feet stay cooler than before. The sockliner is soft enough that you can run sockless and you don’t have to worry about smelly bacteria because the liner wicks away moisture.
When it comes to durability, the Gel Foundation 13 uses DuraSponge for extra resilience and cushioning. This is combined with AHAR rubber for a tighter grip as you run.
