Weighing in at a cool 270 grams thanks to its FlyteFoam midsole, the “DynaFlyte” is ASICS lightest shoe ever. It took three years to perfect this silhouette with meticulous attention on the weight. We asked our Store Manager of The Athlete’s Foot store in Warringah Mall, Mike O’Brien who is currently training for a Marathon to provide his first impressions review on the new ASICS DynaFlyte.
Category: Lightweight Cushioned
What is the BEST feature of the new ASICS DynaFlyte shoes?
The weight of the ASICS Dynaflyte’s is the best feature for me. It is much lighter than the traditional ASICS range.
How does the ASICS Dynaflyte differ from other shoes you’ve tried or currently wearing?
I prefer trainers that are effortless and feel like you’re not wearing anything – the Dynaflyte feels like that which is great. They differ by having a little more structure than the other styles I like which allows me to run a little further.
What type of runs are you wearing the ASICS Dynaflyte shoes for?
Short and long – I am training for a marathon and slowly increasing my distance. This style allows me to run short and long distance comfortably. I can run a fast 5k and a slow 10k in the same shoe.
What are some of the New Features you’ve noticed with the shoes?
The new Flytefoam midsole they have, I have never worn an Asics that feels like this. The blended elastic GEL midsole that have is great and feels super responsive.
Your first run in the shoes – how did it go?
They were great, I was able to throw them on and go running and not notice them at all. No wearing in or annoying uncomfortable feeling. There aren’t many styles I would feel comfortable running more than 5k in on the first go.
What is your final verdict on the shoes?
Went for a run last night in them and ran the furthest I have in a long time and woke up with minimal soreness/stiffness. My final verdict is that they are a great addition to their range and their new midsole is their best yet – well done ASICS.
