  • Additional Information: This shoe mimics the fit of the GT-2170 road shoe: a locked-down heel, snug at the midfoot and rather compact in the forefoot. Although there are plush interior features, it feels firm. That’s largely because it has a traditional medial post construction—a firm wedge of foam inserted under the arch to stiffen the otherwise soft and resilient midsole foam—and a hard plastic support bridge to stabilize runners who tend to overpronate. It also has a traditionally built-up dual-density heel (and a 10mm heel-toe drop), which contributes to the heavy weight of the shoe.
