CONSUMER PROFILE / WHO IS IT FOR?The latest version of the GEL-Odyssey uses true walking tooling and is built on a slightly oblique last to give a better fit for walking.The outsole and midsole work extremely well compared to normal 'comfort' shoes on the market that are generally inflexible and don't allow for natural motion through gait.The upper features water proof materials, but is not seam sealed - therefore we have given a 'water-resistant' rating which will still satisfy consumers who wish to keep dry on or off the beaten track.KEY FEATURESUpper. Water resistant upper materials make this a great multi purpose off road walking option. PHF (Personal Heel Fit) to customise heel fit to the individualMidsole.

16How does Guidance Line aim to make the foot more efficient during gait?ASICS' Guidance Line aims to encourage the foot to track along a more ideal path during running. This is achieved via the placement of a vertical groove used to physically separate the medial and lateral potions of midsole/outsole. This separation allows the shoe to flex along the ideal line of progression and encourages the foot to settle into a more correct position during locomotion. The ultimate goal here is to promote improved efficiency and slow the rate at which a runner will fatigue. This in turn will decrease the risk of sustaining an injury through improved and more consistent biomechanical technique. GUIDANCE LINEAn ideal line of progression should track in the following way: Heel strike occurs relatively laterally on the heel.Upon heel strike forces should track medially as the foot uses pronation to absorb the impact associated with contacting the ground. This continues until the forefoot is in full contact with the ground.Once the forefoot has begun to load forces track laterally and the foot begins to supinate. This helps the foot to adapt from a mobile adapter to a rigid lever. This increase in rigidity helps the foot to generate the power required for propulsion at toe off (via the Windlass Mechanism). Guidance Line can be found in the following shoes:This exciting new addition to ASICS' IGS philosophy redefines footwear's contribution to gait efficiency. Gait efficiency, fatigue and injury are all inextricably linked and now the new ASICS Guidance Line is designed to allow the foot to interact with the shoe along its ideal line of progression from heel strike right through to propulsion.What is the line of progression?At its most basic level, the line of progression is the progress of load experienced by the foot from heel strike to toe off. It is measured by analysing the pressure that the shoe and ground exert on the foot whilst it is in contact with the ground. To remain healthy the foot needs to both pronate and supinate at the correct times. Correct foot motion will result in an ideal line of progression and less stress on the foot and lower limb.INNOVATIONSGEL-Kayano 18GT-2170GEL-Landreth 7GEL-3030GEL-Nimbus 13GEL-Cumulus 13GEL-Foundation 10GEL-Neo33GEL-DS Trainer 17GEL-DS Sky Speed 2GEL-Evolution 6GEL-Noosa Tri 7GEL-Blur33
