Lightweight Running Shoes From ASICS Put Every Runner on the Front Foot
6 July 2017
DynaFlyte 2™, Dynamis™ and RoadHawk FF™ offer wearers speed plus comfort thanks to lightweight FlyteFoam™ midsole
Three new models from ASICS’ FlyteFoam Fast Series of performance running shoes are set to give an injection of speed and comfort for runners across various levels and needs – from park runners and city cruisers, to time trialists and marathon racers.
ASICS DynaFlyte 2, Dynamis and RoadHawk FF all feature FlyteFoam, ASICS’ lightest-ever midsole technology. FlyteFoam works with the wearer’s foot to deliver superior cushioning every step of the way. It is also about 55% lighter than the industry standard midsole material, offering runners a comfortable fit with a fast, responsive feel.
Offering lightweight cushioning, ASICS DynaFlyte 2 are designed for runners wanting speed, versatility and comfort. Weighing just around 260g* (about 10g less than the previous DynaFlyte model), they offer the lightweight feel of a racing shoe without having to settle for a thin, uncomfortable midsole. An all-new Adapt Mesh™  breathable, seamless upper follows the movement of the wearer’s foot, improving flexibility and preventing irritation-causing wrinkles from forming as they move. Meanwhile, an updated design ensures the trainers look as good as they feel.
Suggested Retail Price:$130 USD
Made for mild to over-pronators, ASICS Dynamis provide the high stability they need without the added weight. At just around 270g*, they give runners a feeling of speed without having to compromise on support and comfort. The trainers feature a micro-adjustable Boa® System that helps power the DynaPanel™ and lets wearers fine-tune their fit to the millimeter and on the fly using just one hand. The Boa System, DynaPanel™ and DynaTruss™ combined provide runners with superior stability and dynamic medial support.
Suggested Retail Price:$160 USD
ASICS RoadHawk FF are go-fast, go-anywhere trainers that are great for your feet and wallet. A half Mono-Sock™ with seamless engineered mesh wraps snugly around the foot for a supportive fit while the quick-drying Ortholite sockliner provides superior cushioning. What’s more, their unique combination of top technical benefits and fresh, youthful look mean they are equally fit for a run in the park or for wearing in everyday life. And all at a very competitive price point.
Suggested Retail Price:$100 USD

And for those who want a running shoe to suit both their sport and lifestyle needs, there’s RoadHawk FF. We invest heavily in innovation every year.
