Onitsuka Tiger’s low profile Mexico 66 and Ultimate 81 are probably the most popular old school Asics styles, but they have another classic runner you’d probably recognize if you saw it. Get to know the Asics X-Caliber GT, a 1984 debut whose notched sole offer a responsive feel and increased cushioning effect. These were marketed as “the high caliber shoe for overpronation,” but the iconic white, red and blue style plus another in tonal grey are likely to find fans of all foot tendencies. Let us know how these styles compare to what Ronnie Fieg and other notable collaborators have done with this shoe’s sequel, the GT-II, and head out to find that they’ve arrived at retailers like Packer Shoes.
