Two-Layer Breathable Mesh Upper
The GEL-Impression 9 features a two-layer breathable mesh upper, which allows hot air to diffuse out of the shoe and cool air to permeate it. This creates a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Overlays help to maintain shape, while also supporting the feet and providing stability; reducing in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free strides. A removable EVA sockliner and padded tongue create a snug fit and extra, step-in comfort.
GEL Heel Unit Midsole
A rearfoot gel pod sits under the heel to attenuate shock at heel-strike, so your joints are spared as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving concrete. The GEL-Impression 9′s midsole also incorporates a full stretch EVA midsole platform, designed with flex grooves that strategically fold on impact. This folding design reduces pressure underfoot and allows the rearfoot GEL unit, encased in the EVA midsole, to perform to its maximum capacity. A Trusstic System completes the midsole to reduce the shoe’s weight whilst maintaining its structural integrity.
Asics High Abrasion Rubber Outsole
An AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) outsole completes the Gel Impression 9. AHAR is a lightweight rubber compound and is strategically placed in areas of the outsole that succumb to the most wear and tear, this helps to extend the shoe’s lifetime. The result is an extremely durable outsole with exceptional multi-surface grip.
