Asics GEL-Lyte33 2 -
The lightest shoe in the ASICS 33 collection, ASICS GEL-Lyte33 2 shoe employs a host of featherweight features designed to promote natural foot movement. This men's running shoe features a breathable, open mesh upper with reflective detailing to enhance your exposure in low-light conditions. Aligned to the joints of the foot, the asymmetrical two-density midsole works in harmony with Guidance Line to optimize flexibility for an adaptive and responsive ride. Rearfoot GEL cushioning absorbs shock and enhances comfort; high abrasion rubber placed in critical areas of the outsole of the ASICS GEL-Blur33 2 running shoe provide extra durability and traction.

Support and Cushioning:

  • 33 midsole construction uses strategically positioned cushioning and support structures to allow your foot to naturally flex at any one of its 33 joints
  • GEL cushioning absorbs impact and provides rebound to smooth out the transition to your forefoot
  • Ideal for runners who underpronate or require neutral support or moderate overpronation correction
  • Rearfoot GEL cushioning reduces shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance


  • Runs small, order 1/2 size larger


  • AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability


  • F.A.S.T. Heel comfortably hugs the foot while minimizing structural weight
  • Mono Sock contours around the ankle for improved comfort

Lining and Layers:

  • Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency


  • F.A.S.T heel uses a sleek external heel counter to provide stability and improve fit


  • This midsole construction allows different parts of the shoe to adapt simultaneously to a variety load profiles from different angles
  • F.A.S.T. Sole minimal outsole material is positioned only in high-abrasive areas
  • F.A.S.T sole is comprised of minimal outsole material, making the shoe lighter overall
  • Seamless upper quarter panel uses more welding than stitching, thus eliminating chafing and irritation
  • Mesh and synthetic upper; reflective materials enhance visibility during low-light hours


  • SpEVA midsole improves energy return and resists compression set
  • SpEVA midsole and full-length solyte cushioning absorb impact during so there's less stress on the knee and ankle
  • Asymmetrical two-density midsole is aligned to the joints of the foot—works in harmony with Guidance Line to optimize flexibility for an adaptive and responsive ride
  • SpEVA midsole improves bounce-back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown
  • High-rebound SpEVA midsole
  • Similar to the geometry seen in racing flats, a low heel-toe differential reduces midsole weight to improve economy and encourage faster running
  • Guidance Line design utilizes vertical flex grooves to allow the outsole and midsole to flex with greater efficiency


  • Superlight mesh upper with synthetic overlays


  • Made in Viet Nam


  • US shipments only
  • Pronation is how a runner's foot rolls laterally between footfall and toe-off: Underpronation is when the foot rolls outwards, overpronation is when it rolls inwards, and a neutral pattern is when little rolling occurs
  • Moderate, 6mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) allows you to transition to a midfoot or forefoot striking style or to rely on heel striking when necessary
  • Rubber sole
  • FluidAxis technology enables natural foot rotation by engaging your ankle and joints at your forefoot
  • FluidAxis enables shoe to recognize, adapt and respond to load and positional change from impact to toe-off
  • Anatomically correct deep flex grooves have been aligned to the joints of the foot
Asics designed its 33 shoe collection to complement the 33 joints that allow your foot to flex and adapt to the ground, and the Men's Gel-Lyte 33 2 Running Shoe is a prime example of this design direction at work. Lightweight and moderately cushioned, this is a training for middle-distance runners who underpronate or those in need of neutral cushioning or moderate overpronation correction. Like the sole, the upper is streamlined and flexible, designed for articulation and comfort. You'll spring off the full-length cushioning and feel the efficiency of the FluidAxis technology that engages your ankle and forefoot joints in order to encourage a natural gait. Lightweight, low-drop trainers are a dime a dozen these days, so the Gel-Lyte33 takes a different approach by structuring the supportive materials and cushioning in such a way that both flex with your foot. You get the most natural feeling underfoot and all the good stuff that comes with a traditional training shoe design.

Asics GEL-Lyte33 2 Reviews:


I've typically preferred running on trails and beaches but, after a recent move to the suburbs, I decided that it'd be convenient to mix in some road runs as well. Asics have proven to be solid shoes for me for over a decade now so I decided to start there. After doing quite a bit of research, I decided on this shoe and am so glad I did! They are very breathable, and offer a good amount of cushioning and support. But, hands down, my favorite thing about them is how super lightweight they are. They don't slow me down at all, even when I take on hills that would normally have me huffing and puffing. Very happy I picked these up.

These were my second pair of Asics purchased through Zappos. Actually, the first pair that I still use at the gym was a gift from my son. The short of it is that I love the Asics Gel-Lyte 33 2. The best "sneaker" I've ever owned. It's light and comfortable, and provides great support. I just came back from the Barrett-Jackson Car Show that spans at least a couple of hundred acres and 3,000 cars and car-related vendors in Scottsdale, Az. and the Asics kept me floating above it all. And the purchase through Zappos was smooth as silk.

I'm on my second pair of these. I run about 30 miles a week and am definitely not the most efficient runner. However, the first ones lasted about 300 miles or so. Somehow the upper mesh tore early on but never got worse. Also, it seems the tread is quick to wear, noticable by 50 miles and by 300 miles the cushioning was pretty much gone. Little things but nothing that would discourage me from getting another pair. A really great shoe.

I was using my existing ASICS full gel running shoes for both indoor and outdoor sports and I was looking for new ASICS shoes which is light, not too much padding so remain stable and great for my bootcamp. I picked this up at the store, bought them and love it so much that I bought additional pair from Backcountry at 25% discount....sweet. Love the design and colors especially the blue one.

Extremely comfortable

Bought these due after reading they were good for "under-pronators." I have flat feet, and have been wearing them for about a month now, and they still feel great. They are extremely light, so I do hope they hold up. Thus far I've worn them mostly for walking, with a little light running on a treadmill.

This is by far one of the best athletic shoes I've bought. I've always been a Nike/Adidas guy for years, but I wanted to give Asics a shot. It is very comfortable (including the sole) and fits my feet perfectly. The shoes also look really good. Also perfect for gym and cardio workouts.

I ordered these for my son for cross country. He says they are very comfortable and light-weight. I wish the adult women's shoes had more normal colors such as these.

These are great shoes! I usually wear them when riding my bike or exercising. The size seems to run about a half size small.
