After a hard day of work on my legs, I was excited to get on the road and run with my shiny new shoes, the ASICS DynaFlyte. Pre-ordering my color made me even more excited to get exactly what I wanted. I wasn't disappointed. These are awesome looking shoes. There was more than one color combination that I wanted.
What I noticed before even putting on the shoe was how light it was when I picked it up - close to even a racing shoe. The upper is completely seamless which added to its lightweight quality.
I was hoping for a highly cushioned shoe with adequate responsiveness. I was not disappointed! The new ASICS “FlyteFoam” makes up the whole midsole. This foam is 55% lighter than standard midsole foam, but the shock absorption was not compromised in any way. I loved the fit and feel of the shoe. The upper felt like it was nicely wrapped around my foot without suffocating it. It offered the ultimate feeling of flight. I actually ran a pace that is about 30 seconds faster than I normally do during this run because I felt so good. The lightweight feel of them seemed to encourage speed and could definitely by your speed and tempo run training shoe.
