Runners of all levels rely on the GT-1000™ 6 for its balanced support, enhanced durability and cushioned ride at an incredible value. The Impact Guidance System® and Guidance Trusstic System™ help guide your stride so you maintain efficient form from start to finish. Weight: 10.2 oz. Heel Height: 22mm. Forefoot Height: 12mm.

The GT 1000 has a removable sockliner that provides cushioning performance and moisture wicking for a cooler, dryer, healthier environment

The Midsole of the GT 1000 (v6) attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance. Not a huge step up from the previous model but difficult to beat when the previous model already performed excellent in this manner.

AHAR® PLUS OUTSOLE : Strategically positioned in critical areas of the outsole, this exceptionally durable compound is 50% more durable than standard ASICS High Abrasion Rubber.

The GT 1000 (V6) comes in a variety of fit options for both men and women extending its rangeto the middle to long distance runner population.
works well with an orthotic adding further stability to the shoe for a moderate pronator

Overall I rate this shoe. The improvements in the upper have been a welcomed addition and the midsole and outsole durability both held up well when compared to shoes in the similar category.
