Asics GEL-451 Running Shoes From step-in to take-off, the GEL-451 is designed to cut down on time. From the first moments of slipping your foot into the seamless upper, to tightening the shoe with the quick fasting Boa closure system - which will quickly and easily adapt to your foot at a simple turn of the dial - it is sure to get you out of transition area and onto the road faster than before. Rearfoot ASICS GEL cushioning and a Magic Sole outsole mean more bounce-back while still providing protection under foot. Seamless Upper Seamless uppers will encase each foot in streamlined comfort. The no-sew construction minimises layers and bulk plus reduces the risk of irritation; because we know how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day. Synthetic overlays swathe the midfoot and unite with the Boa closure system to promote complete lockdown; they help to anchor your foot to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free speed. Mesh covers the forefoot; its perforations increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to win in. GEL Midsole A perforated sockliner lies atop a feathery midsole to optimise moisture drainage, de-saturating your stride on Tri day to prevent the development of that distracting clammy feeling and keep you comfortable and motivated. EVA resides in the midsole to supply lightweight and resilient cushioning, helping to spare your joints as you sprint down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Embedded within this feathery platform, and complimenting its protective nature, is a Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System. The GEL puck sits under the heel to attenuate shock during the impact phase and encourage a smooth transition to midstance. Magic Sole Outsole A Magic Sole outsole completes the GEL-451; its vented construction minimises weight whilst maximising breathability to create a shoe that's lighter and more capable of fast Olympic distance triathlons than ever.
