Asics GT-Cool Xpress OG.

by Henrik Buzzi


SS16 marks the return of a classic with Asics Tiger set to unveil a reimagined version of their gamechanging 90’s icon. The GT-Cool Xpress was launched back in 1992 and introduced a number of innovative technologies. The original was a performance shoe made famous for the cutaway on the midsole which displayed the previously unseen GEL™ technology. The 2016 revamp of the GT-Cool Xpress also stays true to the original and features the visible GEL™ design in the midsole as well as a mono sock fit system, allowing for better positioning and fit of the shoe. Originally designed for ‘serious high mileage runners’ the 2016 GT-Cool Xpress maintains its performance features including an internal molded PVC heel counter and rear foot Super GEL™ to provide improved rear foot stability, porous forefoot GEL™ for increased comfort and a blow rubber outsole to improve traction.
