The Latest Asics GEL-Tech Walker Neo® 2 walking shoe

The Asics Gel-Tech Walker Neo 2 has the latest and comfort enhancing technology.

The Gel-Tech has a flatter heel and more flexible upper that you would expect of a well designed walking shoe.

But it also has a new forefoot pattern that adds flexibility and comfort.

The shoes has a midsole Asics Trusstic system that reduces the weight of the midsole while offering support and flexibility.

It also has the Asics DuoMax support system to enhance your support and stabilityas you move through the walking motion and offer overpronators the support they need.

The upper of the Gel-Tech Walker Neo 2 comes with a Biomorphic fit stretch material that reduces buckling and the potential for irritation. It also comes with a new medial bunion window for a better more comfortable fit.

The new women’s model includes a soft top dual mat and added soft toe cushioning under the arch and forefoot for additional comfort and support.[easyazon-image-link asin="B003OYJAZ0" alt="ASICS Women's Gel-Tech Walker Neo Walking Shoe,White/Skyway/Black,9.5 M" src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/416VT8J2dSL._SL160_.jpg" align="left" width="160" height="160"]

When you add in the Asics Soft Top DuoMax system for greater gait efficiency and comfort along with the Assymmetrical Lacing Design and its anatomically correct lacing environment that reduces potential for irritation and provides improved comfort and fit, you have the very best Asics Gel-Tech Neo 2 walking shoe the market has to offer.

 

Customer reviews on Amazon have a four 5 star ratings and one 4 star rating for the latest Women’s Asics Gel-Tech Neo 2.

Here is what some have to say:

Tootsie says “This is the only walking shoe I’ve had that doesn’t hurt some part of my foot! It accommodates both my bunion and my narrow heel. The sizing is true and the offset lacing is very comfortable. This shoe also minimizes stress on the joints. I hope Asics never stops making this shoe. I walk three miles every day in complete comfort in this shoe.”

Barbara -“Comfortable, good support, nice looking. I bought two more after using the first pair for a couple of weeks on my walks. I highly recommend this walking shoe!”

For the men K.J says “You might be advised to order a half size smaller than you would normally. I have worn Brooks Beast running shoes for years and currently wear an 11.5. The appropriate Gel-Tech Walker would have been 11.”

Normally you want to order a half size larger than your dress shoe since you feet swell as you walk for distance.  But here it appears you can order your regular size.

So there you have it.

The pricing for men’s models runs from $92-$100 on amazon though you can get it for $89.99 on select options.

 

For women the pricing ranges from $85 t0 $100 with pricing at $84 on select options.
