The breathable mesh surrounding the upper of the ASICS Gel-Excite 8 Running Shoes will keep your feet comfortable, allowing cool air to permeate and preventing an intolerable build up of heat. Moisture from sweat is also able to escape out of the shoe, whilst liquid on the surface of the material is wicked away instantly, keeping the shoes at their lightweight feel. No sew overlays improve support whilst reducing the overall weight and providing excellent durability. A moulded heel section will ensure the rearfoot will always be held in a comfortable and upright position, keeping you more centred on the shoes platform, offering an even better fit than the previous model. A traditional lacing system will allow you to find a firm and comfortable fit all the way up the feet, guaranteeing a personalised and non-restrictive fit. A padded tongue and ankle collar will reduce the risk of irritation from rubbing, whilst it will also enhance comfort.
