The Asics GT-2000 2 may be overshadowed by the recently-released Gel-Kayano 20, but make no mistake about it—if you want to go the distance on your next run, don’t overlook this beast of a shoe.

The GT-2000 series is just in its second generation, but already the shoe has built up a reputation of tearing up the pavement. While the maiden version was amazing in its own regard, the GT-2000 2 has been beefed up for even greater performance potential.

Among the new features in the shoe is a FluidRide midsole that is tuned for efficient cushioning and energy rebound, a reinforced vamp, as well as a full-length SpEVA 55 lasting for improved support and stability. To compliment the new tech, Asics has carried over some key features from the previous version, including the Guidance Trusstic system, and the brand’s trademark rearfoot and forefoot Gel cushioning units.

To make it worth your while, Asics is even offering a risk free money back guarantee. So what've you got to lose?
