Following the adult version, the 1000 series for kids has a new name: GT-1000. The kids model of the GT-1000 offers a great value and well-cushioned ride.
This model contains both Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning, to absorb shock when your foot lands and provide a fantastic ride. The inclusion of PLUS3 raises the heel to forefoot gradient to help relieve strain on on the joints, muscles and tendons of children's developing legs, while the DuoMax Support System ensures support and stability. The outsole of the GT-1000 GS is reinforced with ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber to ensure greater durability.
To determine the correct type of running shoe for your feet, use the tried and tested "wet foot test". Dip your foot into water and then stand on a surface that will show your footprint - a towel or piece of paper or cardboard. The shape of your wet footprint indicates the amount of stability you might need in your shoe. If your footprint looks like the one on the right (with a very narrow band or no band at all between the forefoot and the heel) then you should choose shoes from the cushion category on this page Cushioned shoes generally have the softest midsoles and the least added stability. They're built on a semicurved or curved last to encourage foot motion, which is helpful for runners who have rigid, immobile feet (underpronators). You should buy these if you're an efficient runner whose feet don't roll inwards excessively (overpronate) when you run.
