Comments: Comfy and natural feeling! I appreciate that Asics has built their shoes with plenty of toe box depth, where other companies' shoes have made my toes feel strapped down. I also think Asics has the cushioning in the right places for a shoe of this flatness and weight, it doesn't get in the way while running. I also really appreciate the low profile style and colors that this shoe comes in; I was hard pressed to find a running shoe with the specs and comfort of the gel lyte that didn't look so obvious. The only thing that I feel would make this shoe better is a snugger heel and a slightly more snug midfoot, for my narrow heel and medium width forefoot. In comparison to other shoes, it has a wide fit that forced me to lace up using the extra holes while running. Otherwise, I am soo happy that Asics has made this shoe!

Comments: I have found this shoe to be an excellent, light-weight daily trainer with good potential for racing. Nothing about the shoe feels cumbersome, but it offers good support and feels forgiving if you are logging many of your miles on roads. The stack height is substantial enough to protect your feet but low enough to encourage a midfoot or forefoot strike. I like the fact that it has a 7-8 mm heel-toe drop as well; my calves are on the tight side so this shoe is a perfect compromise because it is still fairly low-profile but safer for my tight-ish calves and achilles than some of the 4 mm drop shoes being made by other companies. Great job Asics!
