Comments: First of all I like this shoe, it's a very lightweight stability racing flat with relatively good support (when it's new). However this shoe breaks down incredibly quickly, especially in the forefoot where after 6 or 7 runs the midsole has begun to collapse and the outsole is almost gone. I'm light (140lbs) and relatively quick (29.30 10k) and I don't go through shoes quickly. It would have been a better shoe had Asics added duosole to the forefoot (after all DS used to stand for Duosole on this product!) but I guess that would be too exensive. I notice that this is actually a budget racer/trainer on the Japanese market called the skylyte.

Comments: Been a Ds Racer fan since gel banditos, Ran 3 marathons in them, caballo blanco 50 miler and Boston Marathon in ds racer 9. On dec 14th, im running Monterrey marathon and Im not sure if Should ran in ds racer 10, they feel awesome but the are like a very light neutral racers, no support at all (compared with banditos, racer 8 and 9) They are 2 ounces lighter, so maybe this time not for my frame size. Im 172 lbs. 5' 11".

Comments: I was looking for a racing shoe with some pronation support. I train in the Asics Kayano. Not sure if I got a defective pair but these caused a horrible blood blister on my 4th right toe only. Waited a few weeks and tried them again and the same thing.

Comments: Love this shoe! Super light but seems to have a bit more cushioning than the DS Racer 9. I run 2-4 miles 3x a week and occasional longer runs. My foot has a high arch but I pronate a bit, these seem to give me good support.
