Whether you run for fun or run to race, the Asics Women's Gel Excel33 3 Running Shoe makes every run a rollicking good time. This low pro shoe has a sock like fit for a secure and personalized feel. FluidRide technology works with the midsole to get rid of any hitch in your giddy up so you run smoothly all of the time. If you're looking for an traditionally cushioned shoe that feels more like a minimalist runner, grab the Gel Excel33 3 and go. Open mesh on top and the slightly wider toe box give your toes the fresh air and room they crave. Crafted to fit like a sock, the breathable upper is directly stitched to Ortholite foam. The ComforDry sockliner lets you run with naked feet since the antimicrobial finish fights sweat and stink. Socked or not, your foot will simper with pleasure from the one two punch of midsole magic. FluidRide technology gives the dual density midsole cushioning and bounce back support so your footsteps flow from heel to toe with surprising ease. The 10mm heel forefoot drop accommodates all gaits, whether you're a toe runner, a mid foot maven, or a heavy heel hitter. Those who favor a rearfoot oriented gait will be in heaven as the Rearfoot Gel takes away the force of impact for a soft landing, every time. The combination sole is light yet robust to give you a few hundred happy miles. FluidAxis flex grooves keep the sole supple and responsive to give your gait a fluidity that would make a waterfall jealous. Between the sock like fit and strategically placed flex grooves along the bottom, the Gel Excel33 3 feels like a minimalist shoe but has the benefit of being fully cushioned in the style of traditional running shoes.
