Asics Gel Galaxy 7 GS Junior Running Shoes Specially designed for kids, the GEL-GALAXY 7 is an all-round running shoe that’s both durable and comfortable. It has GEL technology in the forefoot and rearfoot for improved cushioning and extra comfort. The GEL technology absorbs shock and reduces impact on your muscles and joints. And style-wise, it comes in fun and vibrant colours chosen especially for younger runners. EVA Upper When buying a shoe for your child you want them to be as comfortable and as secure as possible in the footwear, and with a durable, comfortable design the GEL-Galaxy 7 provides the above with an EVA sockliner in the upper which moulds to the shape of the foot, increases comfort levels as well as including an easy removable sockliner which can be substituted for medical orthotic or insoles should they be required. Gel Midsole For those active, sporty kids the shoe is perfect for running around the playground or running in competitions with the Rearfoot GEL cushioning system. The GEL operates in the midsole to act as a buffer between the foot and the ground. In more firm terrains such as concrete or pavement the GEL provides extra cushion and thus reducing the impact and general wear and tear of the muscles and joints. The GEL also allows for a smooth and seamless transition to the midstance, again providing an additional source of income and support. Durable Rubber Outsole Again just like the rest of the shoe the outsole is also designed for comfort and support. With the use of Trusstic technology your child can remain secure in the shoe as it reduces the amount of shock when the foot hits the ground without taking anything away from the shoe. While the shoe gets stronger and more durable, no weight is added so it remains a comfortable, light fit to wear. A reduction of shock will allow for further protection of the joints, and help to keep the muscles stable for longer and create little or no damage in the process.
