Women's ASICS GEL-Foundation 13 Updates
Instead of mostly-stitched overlays in the 13’s predecessor, this newest iteration uses fused elements to add structure without piling on bulkiness. The midsole continues to employ the same tried and tested technologies to stabilize your foot and neutralize overpronation issues. Bottom line: you get a sleeker shoe with the same stabilizing technologies to help correct gait issues.
Size and Fit of the Women's ASICS GEL-Foundation 13
General Size and Fit
With a 10 mm heel-to-toe drop, the ASICS GEL-Foundation 13 comes in women’s regular and extra wide widths. For your most comfortable fit, we recommend going up one half size up from your true foot size.
Engineered mesh creates a healthy foot environment by encouraging air flow throughout the shoe, keeping the interior fresh and dry. Your toes will always be protected from hazards thanks to the stitched unit at the front of the toe box. Synthetic overlays on the upper add extra structure to keep your foot securely locked in, making accidentally slippage a problem of the past.
The midsole of the GEL-Foundation 13 boasts a full array of advanced running technologies to keep you running stronger and longer. The SpEVA™ full-length foam, for example, provides lightweight, bouncy support. The iconic ASICS GEL® cushioning system is located in the front and back sections of the shoe to disperse shock upon landing impact – so you’ll feel forgiving foot strikes even on hard asphalt surfaces.
Another ASICS technology, the Dynamic DuoMax® Support Sytsem, helps correct overpronation by stabilizing the foot and gently guiding it into a more neutral heel-toe transitions. For even more form support, the Guidance Trusstic System™ at the midfoot assists the integrity of your stride.
Finally, the ComforDry™ sockliner adds extra cushioning and plush comfort. It also protects against moisture and bacteria, so your sweaty shoes can dry out before they stink up.
On the outsole of the GEL-Foundation 13, you’ll find the signature ASICS High Abrasion Rubber® (AHAR). Placed in the heel area of the shoe, its job is to protect against wear and tear, thus increasing the shoe’s lifespan. DuraSponge®, a material made from blown rubber, is on the forefoot of the outsole and serves up an amazingly springy ride during the push-off phases of your gait cycle. Flex grooves cut along the entire outsole allow the platform to bend with your foot’s every movement throughout your stride, so you can experience more give and less stubborness.
