The ASICS GEL-GALAXY 8 Running Shoes are designed as an entry level running shoe. Designed for low-mileage runners who require strong support, this neutral running shoe is well cushioned with a traditional fit and feel.
The ASICS GEL-GALAXY 8 Running Shoes upper construction is made up of a breathable mesh and synthetic overlays. The mesh construction of the shoe helps to provide the runner's feet with breathability to help keep their feet cool and dry. The synthetic overlays on the shoe work in conjunction with reflective elements to help you stay visible in low light conditions - these overlays also help to provide for a more secure and snug fit and a more comfortable, secure running experience. The inner and inside tongue of the shoe has been deigned with a layered material that has strategic sweat wicking properties to help guide moisture away from the foot whilst you perform to help your feet stay cooler and dry for longer.
The GEL-GALAXY 8 has a rearfoot GEL unit encased in an EVA midsole that reduces shock whilst an AHAR outsole increases durability whilst the runner performs. The shoe uses AHAR® high-abrasion rubber as heel plugs for durability and balance.
