The ASICS DS Racer 9 continues its tradition as a supportive and responsive racing flat. It has a modest amount of support to correct overpronation, and still retains the light, race-day feel that runners love. The DS Racer 9 now has a soft, close fitting upper that wraps comfortably around the foot, making it ideal for longer races and marathons.
