Updates to Asics DynaFlyte 3 Lite-Show

  • The Asics DynaFlyte 3 Lite-Show is a running shoe that’s designed for the neutral pronator. The sole unit has also been configured to provide support for those who have high arches (underpronators). A full-length foam works with a cushioned lasting board and an anti-microbial sockliner to ensure comfort and foot health.
  • The upper unit makes use of a stretchy mesh that accommodates the shape and motion of the foot as it goes through the gait cycle. Visible pores permit air into the foot-chamber. A reflective print makes the façade visible in low-light.

Asics DynaFlyte 3 Lite-Show size and fit

This Lite-Show version of the DynaFlyte 3 has a standard length. Runners can get a pair using their usual sizing choices. When it comes to width, the available options are D – Medium and B – Medium for men and women, respectively. This running shoe accommodates those who have medium foot dimensions.

The SpevaFoam™ 45 is a cushioned lasting board. It contributes to the overall cushioned feel of the underfoot platform while serving as a connecting piece for the upper and the sole unit.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Asics DynaFlyte 3 Lite-Show uses the Asics High Abrasion Rubber or AHAR®. This durable layer is responsible for shielding the contact-points of the platform from wear-and-tear. Moreover, it is meant to provide traction over the surfaces.

Flex grooves allow the sole unit to bend in conjunction with the foot as the runner gears toward the toe-off. These shallow trenches also add a bit more texture to the tread pattern, potentially heightening grip.

Midsole

FlyteFoam® Lyte is one of the lightest midsole configurations in the Asics line of cushioning technologies. Its job is to provide unwavering cushioning throughout the running session.

The heel part has a Gel® unit inside of it. This silicon-based piece is meant to absorb impact during the landing phase, saving the foot from stress and tension.

The Guidance Line® is a single groove that goes from the heel to the toe. Its purpose is to lead the foot towards a smooth and well-rounded step.

An Ortholite® X-40 Sockliner is placed above the main foam. This extra layer is meant to add more cushioning. It also offers antimicrobial and anti-moisture protection.

Upper

Adapt Mesh™ is a lightweight and form-fitting material that serves as the cover system of the Asics DynaFlyte 3 Lite-Show. This textile has flexible fibers and stretchy sections to welcome the natural shape of the wearer’s foot. Breathability comes from visible ventilation holes on the façade.

The Lite-Show distinction means that the upper has a 3M coating. The extra feature makes this running shoe more visible at night, thereby heightening the confidence of runners when tackling nighttime training sessions or urban adventures.
