Asics Gel-Pulse 7 GS Junior Running Shoes The Asics Gel-Pulse 7 GS Junior Running Shoes offers a variety of technologies to help the wearer stay comfortable and cushioned at all times. Breathable Mesh Upper The upper is constructed from a breathable mesh. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the entire upper, sucking in cool, fresh air whilst at the same time pushing out hot, muggy air. This system of ventilation keeps the feet cool and comfortable and provides a nice microclimate for the feet during running. In addition, synthetic overlays encase the upper to provide some structure whilst offering extreme durability. The overlays work in unison with the traditional lacing system to help offer a locked-in fit preventing any slipping, which in turn prevents hot spots and irritation. An extra eyelet on either side of the upper is there to offer a more supportive and locked-in fit. The eyelets function is to be lace locked, keeping the heel and feet locked in place. Lastly, a padded tongue and collar offer plush cushioning in areas where irritation and discomfort can take over. With the padding providing protection to the Achilles and ankle area, your junior can now perform without any need to stop. Lightweight EVA Midsole The lightweight EVA midsole provides exceptional cushioning whilst providing bounce-back qualities. The EVA works in a way that when the impact forces and shock waves hit the shoe during heel strike, the energy created is stored and transferred to the forefoot where it pushes the wearer off into their next step. Additionally, Rearfoot gel subsides in the heel area of the shoe to provide even more cushioning. Carbon Rubber Outsole The outsole is constructed using a few different and unique technologies. The trusstic system integrates guidance construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity. A guidance is a Longitudinal groove that decouples tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. Lastly, the outsole compound is created from carbon rubber that provides extreme durability, abrasion resistance and grip.
