Looking for featherweight? Race shoes don’t get much lighter than the upcoming BlazingFast, basically an elite level long-distance spike with a roadworthy outsole. The 3.9 oz weight (Men’s size 9, according to Asics) is the big story, but Asics still manages to pack a lot of features into this shoe
What to Watch For
- Super Light: At 3.9 oz, the BlazingFast shouldn’t be holding anyone back from their fastest performance.
- Low Offset: According to Asics, the BlazingFast checks in with a 4mm offset that naturally places the foot for a mid to forefoot strike.
- Seamless Upper: Go sockless without worrying about blisters and irritation thanks to a seamless upper with soft collar lining.
- Light Cushioning: Asics uses Solyte foam in the midsole for durable cushioning.
