The newest member of Asics’ Natural33 series, the Gel-Super J33 is a new lightweight trainer rolled out by the brand for Fall 2013. The shoe weighs in at just over 7 ounces, yet offers the same pronation support as other, bulkier Asics runners. Under the thin, flexible upper, the shoe is loaded with FluidAxis technology for a smooth transition, as well as Gel units in the sole to help provide runners with cushioning and impact protection. The Gel-Super J33 comes loaded with a F.A.S.T Ride Solyte midsole for responsive cushioning in a lightweight package. The shoe features a completely seamless construction to help reduce irritation and to boost comfort. Featuring a low-profile design similar to racing flats, the Gel-Super J33 comes with a low heel-toe differential that reduces midsole weight to improve economy and encourage faster running.
