Asics FuzeX Lyte 2: R1 400

We’ve found a zippy shoe for those up-tempo days when you feel you need the shoes to match your speed, but which will still give you versatility. The midsole and outsole remain largely untouched from the first version, delivering moderately soft cushioning from heel to toe. The upper, however, gets a new mesh package that wear-testers reported was roomy enough to remain comfortable on long runs, but compliant enough to be pulled tight if you have a narrower foot. It’s not the traditional shape and structure of the Asics shoes we know so well, but this change in shape – with a wider forefoot, and very few stability features – will appeal to those looking to run on a variety of surfaces.
