Customer Reviews

Comments:  Japan Thunder 3's are just an all-around terrific shoe. They have a great fit for runners that don't like running in shoes with loose sections. The weight is also wonderful and my feet never hurt at all. This is my third year of high school track and this pair is way better than any other track spike I've encountered. I'm glad Asics made this upgrade more like the first ones than the 2's.

I also gotta say I'm so impressed with Running Warehouse! I used to think Zappos was the best but as of late they have been very slow on updating their shoes and they are usually $100+. Running Warehouse has been great with prices and they are always the first website to get new shoes in. Thanks!

Comments: I've used them so far in two races.  By far the best shoe I've used on
the track.
