ASICS GEL-NETBURNER 16 GS Junior Netball Shoes

REF: ASI3474

SAVE £8.00

The ASICS GEL-NETBURNER 16 is the successor to the popular GEL-NETBURNER 15 and has been tweaked to make it the best possible shoe for the netball court; a new high performance midsole has been introduced and the upper redesigned to increase flexibility and longevity.more

The ASICS GEL-NETBURNER 16 Junior Netball Shoe is designed to cope with the demands of the netball court efficiently and effectively. Featuring pronation support and myriad technologies that boost stability and comfort, these shoes help you stand up to the pressures of hard court play. The 16th edition of the popular GEL-NETBURNER series continues to deliver the stability and excellent cushioning that netball players need.

The GEL-NETBURNER 16 is the only netball shoe with Plus 3, an extra 3 mm in heel gradient. This means that this shoe is perfect for those who experience high levels of strain on their Achilles tendon during play. The Netburner 16 is tough enough to withstand heavy wear and tear on the most punishing sporting surfaces.

A DuoMax compound in the midsole is positioned to enhance support and stability for short sprints and turns whilst rear and forefoot GEL units help to absorb shock impact, keeping the feet protected to last the game. On the upper, a Personal Heel Fit and Asymmetrical Lacing Design combine to create a personalised and snug fit. The outsole is reinforced with ASICS' High Abrasion Resistance rubber to make it more durable.

  • Plus3 Heel Gradient - An extra 3 mm in heel gradient to enhance the play of those who suffer with Achilles strain.
  • AHAR - ASICS High Abrasion Resistant rubber on the outsole. Helps cut down on excessive wear.
  • Solyte Midsole Material - Lighter than traditional EVA and SpEVA, providing enhanced lighter weight cushioning and improved comfort.
  • SoftTop DuoMax - A thin, softer layer that sits on top of the main stability component in the midsole for further comfort.
  • Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems - Shock absorbing material placed in midsole of shoe. Shape of units designed for special function.
  • Personal Heel Fit (PHF) - Personal Heel Fit moulds and customises itself to the individual heel shape of each wearer.
  • Space Trusstic System - This midfoot stabilizer creates a cushioned pocket between the trusstic device and the midsole, allowing for controlled midsole deformation and more efficient foot function.
  • Removable Sockliner - An EVA or SpEVA sockliner moulded to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
  • Asymmetrical Lacing Design - Provides a snug fit.
