If you're like me and you believe that you get what you pay for, and if ASICS is a brand you've known and trusted over time, it's hard to find anything negative to report after wearing these shoes and finding them to be exactly as ASICS promised!
Called by running shoe experts 'a significant innovation', the ASICS FlyteFoam midsole material used to manufacture this shoe has set a new standard in the realm of lightweight athletic footwear. Accordingly, ASICS has modestly "broken the 300g barrier for cushioned shoes," which is why a men's size 9 weighs in at only 9.5 ounces.
Because FlyteFoam is the lightest cushioning material ever (an impressive 55-percent lighter than industry standard EVA material), I was able to tell the difference in my performance within minutes of wearing my DynaFlytes for the first time. The word I use to describe the shoe's response to my feet is elasticity: reinforced fibres used to fabricate these shoes behave like elastic, so my kicks return to their original shape following every run.
This fact was not lost on me or the guys in my running club. We all respect the brand, so when I heard about a revolutionary new ASICS shoe - the DynaFlyte - being developed at the ASICS Institute of Sports Science, my ears pricked up. Sadly, the news reached me before the shoes were in stock, so I had to delay my feelings of gratification! Excuse the pun, but upon arrival, those shoes started flying off store shelves. Don't believe? Watch the video below!
