Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GT-2000 8 is made for Overpronation.
Low arches or flat feet
Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
How your foot contacts the ground
The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL? Technology Cushioning System
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
FlyteFoam? Midsole Technology
Our FlyteFoam? technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
Dynamic DuoMax? Support System
This evolution of DuoMax? system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
Trusstic System? technology
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
Engineered Mesh Upper
Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.

Great unning shoe for maintaing fitnessIt's nothing special; it's just a great shoe for building or maintaining fitness discomfort-free. It's not a fast shoe but one that is very comfortable overall, stable with a pleasnt ride. Worth the price if your dedicated to fitness. Cheaper than medication!
On the downside, it is little narrow. It's not springy and the upper was warm to me. Regardless it's a great shoe.

Way Better than the V7Fits more true to size than the previous versions. Hated the shoe the first 20 miles, because it felt so stiff, but after this it broke in and is now feels great under my foot.

Great shoe, but the Toe Box keeps getting widergreat shoe as always, but the 2000-7 and now the 2000-8, it seems the toe box is far too wide. Not sure why that happened . You need to shrink the width of the toe box on the 9.
