ASICS Gel Hyperspeed 4 $75

ASICS Gel Hyperspeed 4 $75
The fourth round of the Hyperspeed maintains the focus of the original: value, protection, and performance.  

The shoe gives specific care to its most essential components and improves where it can on previous versions. Unchanged are the generous SpEVA midsole and the Magic Sole outersole, which is well-ventilated and has rice husks added to the forefoot rubber compound to improve traction in wet conditions. The fit is that of a great racer—a snug heel and roomier forefoot— thanks to a more closely woven mesh and more effective stabilizing overlays, a synthetic suede support under the ASICS stripes on the lateral side, and a closed mesh panel on the medial side. The fit, flexibility, and overall cushioning are its claims to fame, while the attractive price provides extra value. It should come as no surprise that the Hyperspeed earned our Best Racing Shoe award.

  • Sizes: men 4–13,14 (unisex) Weight: 7.3 oz. (men’s 11)
  • Shape: semi-curved
  • Fit: snug heel, wide forefoot
  • For: medium- to high-arched feet with neutral biomechanics
  • Range: efficient runners - up to a marathon; heavy strikers - up to 20K or a bit beyond

ASICS Gel-3020 $120

ASICS Gel-3020 $120
The aim of the 3020 is comfort and stability, which it achieves well, though with a firmer ride than is typical of ASICS.  

The upper wraps the foot well and Biomorphic Fit panels stretch with the foot to improve the feel regardless of the flexing or position of the foot. The lacing has been separated from a single eyestay to individual points that allow the laces to flex and snug alternately as tension is applied by the moving foot. PHF memory foam has been added to the new, lower ankle collar, which reduces ankle irritation. The addition of a flexible bunion window rounds out the upper improvements.The midsole has a firm forefoot cradle and a wider base that combine to make the ride both firmer than other ASICS stability shoes and its most stable. Overall, the fit, stable performance, and attention to detail earned the Gel-3020 our Best Shoe award in the Motion Stabilizing category.

ASICS Hyper XC & Hyper Rocketgirl

ASICS Hyper XC & Hyper Rocketgirl
This update retains the same midsole/outersole in last season’s version: low-profile, molded EVA and a high-traction, lugged sole that, judging by the significant number of runners who wear them, are extremely effective.

Changes have been implemented in the upper, particularly some upgrades to the meshes which make them sturdier. The smooth and well-finished interior is supportive and breathable. The extended heel counter and added medial overlays deter picking up mud while offering better support this time around. Overall, the ASICS fit, gender specificity, traction, and quality deliver good value.
