ASICS’ most storied racing shoe, the GEL-DS Racer 9 features a new lightweight breathable upper, moisture drainage system and its famously stable ride. Geared for race day performance while providing ample support, the 9th edition of the popular DS Racer is ideal for over-pronators.

The DS Racer 9 is the only ASICS racing shoe to feature a Solyte midsole with a DuoMax Support System, making the shoe lighter while providing ample support. The new Magic Sole provides grip while improving ventilation, keeping fast feet cool. All this, and it only weighs 7.7 ounces(6.2 oz. for women)!

If minimalism is more your style, try the Gel-Hyper Speed 5!

A favorite of American record holder Ryan Hall, the HyperSpeed 5 features a lightweight platform, breathable upper, and a moisture drainage system. This versatile shoe is well suited for a range of runners both on the road and around the track. The trusstic system beneath the arch reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe, and the Wet Grip outsole is made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components, designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces.
