Our verdict

A versatile shoe that's great for training and racing. The Flytefoam cushioning offers a smooth ride that always feels good; short intervals or long steady runs. One of the brand's best shoes this season, it's helping to elevate the brand again to one of the best around. In previous seasons ASICS had been left behind a little by other big players, but thanks to this and the new designs featured in the Nimbus and Kayano, ASICS are on the up again!

First impressions

A seamless, stretch mesh upper is cleverly engineered to provide a perfectly contoured fit around the foot. Is soft and breathable and really does fit like a sock. The look is stylish too and shows the thought that went into the design.

Strangely, the Dynaflyte sits on it's own in the Asics range in terms of racer/trainers. If you need a little more stabilty in your shoes, have a look at the Asics Gel DS-Trainer 25 or if you want a really responsive shoe, take a look at the Asics Novablast.

Midsole

The midsole makes this shoe, the Flytefoam is used in this model to its best, the dimentions and durometer (firmness) are spot on to give a soft but not squashy feel that remains responsive when pushed. 

It's deep enough to provide enough cushioning for longer runs or even the marathon but light enough for race day at any distance.

Upper

The Adept Mesh seamless upper in an engineered stretchy mesh that allows molds around your foot and the shoe feels like it fits like a glove.

Sole

Low profile and light weight, the sole provides enough traction and the roads and thanks to the carbon rubber heel, it remains durable and hard wearing. The guidence line grooove cut into the sole promotes the smooth transition from heel to toe.

Conclusion

A well cushioned daily trainer that is light enough to enable faster paced runs to feel just that. It's a smooth riding experince too. The upper is very nicely engineered and fits well to give the shoe shelf appeal that looks as good as it performs.

Technical info

  • Flytefoam Lyte provides lightweight and durable cushioning, capable enough for daily use but light enough for race day. 
  • The famour ASICS Gel cushioning in the heel area uses a silicone-based gel for responsive shock absorption.
  • Adept Mesh is a seamless stretch mesh that provides a personalised, sock-like fit.
