Training-specific shoes have been all the rave lately, and brands, including Asics, have taken notice. Athletes in need of a comfortable, yet lightweight training sneaker are in for a treat this Spring, as Asics gets set to drop its latest creation, the GEL-Fortius TR.

The sleek, low-to-the-ground sneaker is designed to hold its own during the most grueling training and workouts. Despite its light construction, the GEL-Fortius TR is extremely durable, thanks in large part to RhynoSkin rubber reinforcement in key areas like the toe box, as well as an abrasion-resistant upper. Whether you’re in the gym lifting weights or climbing ropes, the GEL-Fortius TR is designed to help you get the most efficiency out of your training. The shoe’s clean design makes it a great option for an everyday workout shoe.

Release date for the GEL-Fortius TR is set for May 1, 2013. The shoe should be priced somewhere around the $90 range.
