This version of the GT-II™ trainer celebrates the 35th anniversary of its 1986 release date. Right on track with the silhouette's 1980s running shoe inspiration, this version is revamped with synthetic suede panelling throughout the upper. The GT-II™ trainer stays true to its roots, featuring the original tooling, external heel counter and GEL™ technology cushioning under the heel. This model was the first ASICS shoe outside of Japan to be produced internationally with GEL™ technology. Just like the 1986 offering, this version features its original shape and external heel clip.
