Walk with extreme comfort and confidence in the Gel-Avenue from ASICS. A suede upper provides support and protection as well as a comfortable fit, ideal to help you tackle the difficult, unpredictable terrain. Rearfoot GEL adds cushioning and shock absorption while the AHAR+ outsole delivers optimal grip and traction.
The upper of the Gel-Avenue has been constructed using a comfortable yet durable suede material. This ensures your feet remain protected without feeling restricted or held back. One of the many benefits of the suede material is that it prevents debris or sharp objects typically associated with off-road or trail walking from damaging your feet. Synthetic overlays are situated throughout the upper for abrasion resistance while a padded tongue and heel add to the comfort and feel of the shoe. Located around the upper is a mesh material, which actively and efficiently wicks away the build-up of excess sweat and moisture, leaving your feet cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. Additionally, cool air is encouraged to circulate, creating a drier, healthier environment for your feet to thrive. Rounding off the upper is a traditional lacing system, offering a secure, locked-in feel as you move.
Exceptional cushioning and comfort comprises the midsole thanks to ASICS' signature GEL compound. Located in the rearfoot, the GEL technology attenuates shock and impact by lessening the burden placed on your knees and joints. This helps to improve the overall comfort while a flexible forefoot offers a more natural movement, enhancing gait efficiency and delivering a much smoother ride. Further assistance is provided by the walking bevel, ideal for more difficult terrain by reducing the impact placed on your body.
Asics' high abrasion rubber works tirelessly in the outsole to afford the wearer optimal grip and traction on a variety of surfaces. The rubber offers a firm, assured footing to deliver the confidence needed to push yourself to the limit. As well as being highly robust, the outsole enables flexibility and control to improve your walking performance and experience, time and time again.
