Shoe Details




The GT-2000 2 GTX offers all the features of the GT-2000 2 but also brings in a few extras to keep you running all season long! Featuring a Gore-Tex upper and an aggressive outsole lug pattern for running in anything Mother Nature throws your way. The Gore-Tex material provides waterproofing capabilities without sacrificing breathability to help keep your feet dry and comfortable in the toughest conditions.

      Review by Vince Angeles (Posted on 3/10/15)

      I currently run in these as well as a Kayano 21 (both 8.5D). While the Kayano is nice and roomy in the forefoot and toe box, the GT-2000 2 GTX feels maybe a 1/4 size smaller. It's definitely a snug fit, but not uncomfortable for me.

      Being a running noob, I can't really comment on the ride except that they are very comfortable on the road and gravel trails I run on. It's definitely not Kayano soft, but I think I appreciate the better "responsiveness" of the GT-2000 when running. It's worth noting that the Kayano 21 were my first real running shoe so I didn't really know what I wanted in a shoe cushion-wise. If I were to do it all over again, I may just end up getting the GT-2000s only as they're that good.

      Lastly, these shoes do run "hot". I'm guessing because of the GTX membrane, the shoe isn't able to breathe as easily as a normal mesh panel. I probably wouldn't feel comfortable running in these above 20C, but the extra warmth is very welcome on cooler nights/mornings.
