First look: ASICS Sakura GT-2000™ 8

We take a look at the GT-2000 running shoes from the ASICS Sakura collection

ASICS’s Sakura collection is designed specifically with runners in mind so, naturally, we couldn’t wait to take a look at the range.

The apparel is gorgeous – chic and practical, made with quick-drying and lightweight fabric – but the shoes are what we’re really excited about. Redesigns of the classic GEL-KAYANO™ 26, DYNAFLYTE™ 4 or GT-2000™ 8 models make the perfect addition to a stylish running wardrobe. It’s the GT-2000s that we get to have a little taster of.

In six stunning colour palettes all inspired by the concept of mindful running, this stability shoe has an updated GEL™ technology piece that improves shock absorbency and a softer foam sole for added comfort. The FLYTEFOAM™ midsole is ASICS’s lightest available, making for a running experience that feels almost like floating.

A combination of innovative design features lend themselves to the stability of this shoe: DUOMAX™ and TRUSSTIC SYSTEM™ technology give you a really stable ride. The mesh upper, like most ASICS shoes, keeps you reliably dry while allowing your feet to breathe, too.

To encourage runners to take time to themselves, ASICS are offering a free bottle of Rituals shampoo with your purchase if you buy a pair of running shoes before 29 March. You can get yours here.
