Asics Gel Blade 3
The Asics Gel Blade 3 features a bit more width in the toe box plus a brand new color - black / gold.
The Gel Blade 3 is a great court shoe that offers a blend of support and cushioning featuring a more centered and rounded heel to aid lunging movements.
Technical features include:
Impact Guidance System - the sole of the shoe is constructed in such a way as to enhance natural gait and allow the foot to perform in a more natural manner.
Asics GEL - specialized silicone strategically located in the heel and forefoot to provide optimal shock absorption.
Trusstic - an injection molded component located under the mid-foot area provides stability and helps control torsion.
Personal heel fit - a form fitting foam in the heel ensures a perfect fit around the heel.
AHAR+ forefoot - a thin layer of high abrasion rubber located on the forefoot area of the outsole helps reduce excessive wear.
RhynoSkin - high abrasion resistant synthetic leather is attached to the toe cap to avoid excessive wear.
Wet grip rubber - the outsole is made from a special blend of components to create better traction even on a wet surface.
Transition midsole - triple density midsole enhances guidance and cut back motion.
Magic sole - a vented midsole and outsole reduces weight and increases breathability to help keep foot cool and dry.
Removable molded EVA sockliner which provides extra cushioning.
Solid rubber outsole provides enhanced durability and increases traction.
Great Squash ShoeBy Marc from Ottawa on 31/12/2011
Light, low, grippy and good cushionning make this squash shoe the best I have owned so far (and I have tried all of the Asics squash line). Highly recommended.
I love the new Asics Gel Blade 3By Rob from London Canada on 10/11/2012
I really like the low feel, it give great stability side ways. The tongue stays cantered with all the sideways motion. The snug heel fit really makes the fit. It has a soft inside cushioned and lined toe box, I've never experienced any toe rubbing or blisters. I liken the extra lace hole at the top that pulls the shoe snug. An all round good quality squash shoe, I've had all the big names, Mizuno, Adidas, Head & Scott. So far the Asics Gel Blade 3 are the best.
