Until you lace up the Asics Men's GEL-Lyte33 Running Shoe, you have no idea what an ultralight long distance shoe really feels like. Seamless construction keeps the upper lighter than ever and smooth against your foot, a low heel-to-toe drop further minimizes weight, and the flexible Solyte midsole offers plush cushioning to smooth out harsh rides. This is the lightest shoe in Asics's 33 collection, and one of the most effectively balanced featherweight-performance shoes on the market, period.
Lower, Lighter, Faster. With new Featherweight ASICS Speed Technology (F.A.S.T.) the GEL-Lyte33™ brings new meaning to the ASICS 33 Collection™.
