After releasing the GELBURST 25 in the beginning of 2021, finally the GELBURST 25 Low is released recently.

GELBURST is one of the few ASICS basketball shoes currently available for offering high type and low type basketball shoes. Since 1997, GELBURST series already have 25 pairs of shoes.

GELBURST 25 Low releases three different colorways (white & blue, white & red, black & silver). Their common point is the TPU supporting plate.


GELBURST series offer high type and low type basketball shoes. For the ASICS present popular basketball shoes, except that GLIDE NOVA FF and GELHOOP use the same sole, GELBURST series shoes should be the only series which has high type and low type basketball shoes in present ASICS series The main difference of GELBURST 25 high version and low version is the shoe collar. It reduces the height for more flexible space. It uses full-length FlyteFoam technology with GEL on the shoe heel. The low version also has 7 couples of shoelaces. The two shoelaces holes on the midsole position are made of leather, and it extends and connects with the insole. It can lock the foot and offer lateral support. The GELBURST 25 has good cushion performance, fitness and flexibility.

The characteristics of GELBURST 25 Low:

1.The insole uses FlyteFoam technology with GEL on shoe heel.

2. The leather shoelace rings connect the vamp and insole, which improve the fitness and supporting performance.

3. The TPU plate of shoe heel and TWISTRUSS SYSTEM of insole offer anti-torsion performance and stability.

The middle part of outsole distributes ventilated holes to improve the air permeability.

The outsole uses N.C.RUBBER which is wear-resisting.

The unit weight of men’s size US9.5 is about 380g.

The GELBURST is born for the request of air permeability and lightweight. The mesh fabric vamp and the ventilated holes on the outsole are the always the characteristics of GELBURST series basketball shoes.

My favorites 3 parts of GELBURST 25 Low:


ASICS get the inspiration from engine cooling system. It has ventilated holes on the sole and shoe-pad. So the air permeability is good.

  1. The inner side of shoe collar has wearproof leather.

ASICS cover synthetic leather on the inner side of shoe collar where is easy to wear and tear. It extends the using life.

  1. The vamp is combined type

After passing so many years, GELBURST still guarantee the good air permeability, except the ventilated holes of sole, the mesh fabric material also keep the good supporting performance and air permeability.

The shoe tag on the side of shoebox

It uses adaptive fit vamp. The air permeability and fitness of vamp is good. It’s covered thick hot pressed film which improves the supporting performance and protection.

The shoe-tongue has big mesh. It has good air permeability.  The middle part uses dynamic shoelace holes which run through the vamp. After fastening the shoelaces, it can offer good protection and lateral support.

The side vamp is decorated with bright silver tiger claw logo.

The lining uses anti-skid design to avoid being loosen when exercising.

The shoe heel has surrounding TPU plate which extends to the outboard of shoe collar improves the overall fitness and supporting performance.

The shoe head position uses stitching design. The actual durability is great.

The outboard forefoot insole has widened design which improves the lateral supporting performance.

The PROPULSION TPU TRUSSTIC TPU stabilizing plate extends from forefoot sole to shoe heel. The big area of TPU stabilizing plate reduces the bending of metatarsophalangeal joints to avoid the unnecessary waste of energy and flank ahead.

The arch position also has TPU stabilizing plate which offers more strength to the insole.

The stabilizing plate also has a lot of ventilated holes which keeps the good air permeability.

The FLYTEFOAM lightweight insole technology keeps good cushion performance and lightweight. It’s said that the insole has a piece of GEL cushion. I expected the shape and size of the GEL cushion.

The outsole has flex grooves. The center vortex pattern can help the athletes to speed up.

The pattern of rear sole can offer more stability. With non-marking rubber, it can offer better traction performance.

The position of shoe-pad arch is upturning which can fit the foot well. The ventilated holes can improve the air permeability effectively.

The length of EUR42.5 shoe-pad is about 275mm.

The width of EUR42.5 forefoot shoe-pad is about 95.64mm.

The thickness of  EUR42.5 shoe-pad is about 5mm.

The EVA material insole fabric has a lot of ventilated holes on the arch part.

The ventilated holes on the arch position are not decoration. It offers good air permeability.

The unit weight of EUR42.5 ASICS GELBURST 25 LOW is only about 365.6g.


The ASICS GELBURST 25 LOW continues the style of GELBURST series. The appearance is simple and useful. It doesn’t have extra decoration. The weight is light and size is standard. The opening of shoe tongue is big, it’s convenient for putting on and taking off. The flat type shoelaces are not easy to loosen. It is comfortable. The insole is a little stiff in the beginning. After a period, you will feel the cushioning feedback obviously. The cushion performance maybe not good enough for heavy weight athletes. The insole is quite stable. The good air permeability can keep the foot dry.
