Asics DynaFlyte review

I have previously run many miles in my Nike Freeruns but have found the step up to a more stable running shoe. The Asics Dynaflyte has helped my running style improve.

It also gave me more confidence to run harder for longer periods. I had previously had severe injuries on both ankles and lost confidence in my running ability and took a while to slowly get back into.

Despite being a hobbyist runner, I was willing to invest in a pair of running shoes that would be solid but not clunky. This became my highest upgrade of running shoes in terms of price and model, and it has definitely been worth it. 

I find the ride smooth with its lightweight sole giving me the feeling of being to run faster when needed.

It definitely gave me more peace of mind post ankle injuries to rediscover my running style. That has fluctuated over the years, but with the Asics Dynaflyte, I found my running style fall back into a natural way.

Nice contemporary feel

The Dynaflyte 1 has a nice contemporary feel about it utilizing a unique mesh upper was complementing heel unit features. It features an Asics Flytefoam sole, which is exceptionally soft and durable.

The sneaker features subtle reflective strips on the player and for having a fluorescence-colored sole that stands out. It can actually be paired with any number of outfits.

Nice fit in the Asics DynaFlyte

It has a good shape to fit the van and wider part of the foot tapering nicely at the heel offering a natural grip. I found I had ample space in my toe area, which was good when they would spread upon impact while running.

It has a light ride despite being averagely shaped in terms of build. It gave me confidence while running with recovered injured ankles that I had stability throughout running and hold on the ankle.

The tongue has a nice curve to fit against the base of your shin. This worked out well - might depend definitely on other people’s body shape and size.

Short laces

The only constant noticeable downside is that the laces are fairly short - meaning that when trying to lace securely on the second to last hole, the bow is rather short.

However, to give them credit, laces do grip well when tied and don't undo compare to other models which I have experienced.

Hi, I'm Chris! I have been running since 2010 but I’ve always been sporty and played football/soccer and volleyball at youth level as well as tennis and squash. After my ankle injuries, I have managed to slowly get myself back to running ways and currently run an average of 15-30km a week while aiming to increase that when training for events. I've participated in several 10km runs and completed a half-marathon.
