Roll Recovery R3 Orthopedic Foot Roller
After a year of design exploration of working with therapists and elite athletes, the R3 concept was born. The R3 Orthopedic Foot Roller is designed to target specific areas of the foot to stretch the plantar fascia and intrinsic foot muscles to reduce soreness from tired feet. The unique, non-symmetrical shape of the R3 was designed to focus pressure on the inner, middle and outer parts of the foot. Discover all the ways to use the R3 on feet and other parts of the body.

ASICS GT-2000 7 – “What we really wanted to accomplish with this version on the GT-2000™ 7, is to provide the excellent fit and comfort that we could, while keeping the support and stability the model is known for.
Runners have told us that the toebox was not as accommodating as they expected a GT-2000™ series to be, so in the previous model we really wanted to address this in the new model version. We did this by updating the upper with a seamless engineered mesh and an additional support panel on the medial side, and by updating the last the shoe is built on. This is going to give the runner more room in the toebox and a nice comfortable, more rounded open toe box. The additional support system on the medial side will secure the heel and lock the foot onto the platform.”
Designer, Yoshiyasu Ando

– Stability or Cushioning? Cushioning or Stability? With the new Men’s Guide ISO 2, the answer is “yes please!” The PWRFOAM midsole and EVERUNTM topsole combine to give you energetic cushioning while the 2nd density medial post guides the foot through its natural gait cycle. An engineered jacquard, breathable mesh upper, ISOFIT construction, and FORMFIT contoured footbed are just a few ways you’ll dial in the custom fit that you’ve been searching for in a stability running shoe. The Guide ISO 2 is also helpful for runners who suffer from mild to severe pronation, or the over rotation of the ankle.
