The GEL-EXCITE™ 8 running shoe is a versatile pair for the runner on the go. A newly updated silhouette gives this shoe a younger and faster look. This style offers enhanced comfort, with rearfoot GEL® technology cushioning, a new AMPLIFOAM™ midsole, and an ORTHOLITE™ sockliner all combining for a soft and comfy feeling underfoot. Additionally, the new last is paired with a molded heel section that keeps your foot more centered on the shoe’s platform—offering an even better fit than the previous shoe in the series. Overall, the GEL-EXCITE™ 8 provides excellent comfort whether you are running five miles or running errands around town.
