Delivers robust performance

Touted as an aggressive running platform, the Fast Lap MD generates robust performance on the tracks. This is owed to the shoe’s top-notch composition.

It features a full-length Pebax plate that exhibits lightness and durability, promoting propulsion. 

Fast Lap MD provides plush cushioning

For an ultra-light, high-strength cushioning, Solyte midsole is incorporated into the platform. It delivers plush cushioning within the foot chamber.

Lastly, a sharkskin outsole is introduced to enhance the traction of the track running spike. With such construction, surefootedness and balance are supplied.

Standard fit

The ASICS Fast Lap MD only runs in men’s sizing scheme. It is designed using the standard width. Thus, women are advised to subtract 1.5 from their usual size.

It is recommended that before proceeding to purchase, one should go through various user feedback first. Trying on the fit of the shoe is also ideal to secure accurate fit and size. 

Maximum lockdown and support 

There are several aspects of the running shoe that affect its fit. First, its synthetic leather upper wraps around the natural shape and contours of the foot for maximum lockdown. Security is further amplified by the classic lace-up fastening system of the sprinting spike. It allows the user to have an adjustable fit for comfort. Lastly, the Solyte midsole foam enables support and a cushioned fit.

Balanced rigidity and lightness

The outsole of the Fast Lap MD, just like the Nike Zoom Victory Elite 2, is equipped with a full-length Pebax plate.

It is made of sturdy thermoplastic polymer that keeps a fair balance between rigidity and lightness. Such makeup prevents added bulk, allowing athletes to conserve their energy and go the distance. 

Slip resistance for added grip 

Accompanying the distance plate is the sharkskin outsole. It features a textured sole that supplements slip resistance for added grip.

Embedded on the midsole of the sprint spike is a Solyte foam. It employs lighter weight than the standard EVA foams. 

Shock absorption and interior cushioning 

Because of its composition, it is even lighter than Asics' SpEVA foam. Its makeup poses for shock absorption and interior cushioning, promoting comfort.

The ASICS Fast Lap MD boasts a sock-like fit—thanks to its synthetic leather upper. To aid in minimizing the bulk, the upper material employs minimal weight. It also promotes comfort as it delivers an irritation-free running experience.

ASICS Fast Lap MD provides breathable wrap 

Lastly, it offers a breathable wrap around the foot, enabling a healthy foot environment. It wicks away moisture, preventing bacteria build-up from occurring.

ASICS Fast Lap MD traditional lace-up system

For the short-distance shoe’s lockdown, a traditional lace-up closure is implemented. It permits the wearer to have a dialed-in, accurate fit. The same closure system is present in the Nike Zoom Matumbo 3.

I race distances between 800 meters and 10K whether it be on the track, the roads, or on cross country courses. My typical training consists of easy days, long days, workouts (fartleks, tempos, interval training, etc.). My typical training paces range from 7’30 a mile on easy days to sub-5 minutes a mile on fast interval days, and with many paces in between. I run anywhere from 40-60 miles a week. My personal bests are 2:00 for 800m, 4:30 for 1600m, 9:50 for 3200m, 15:57 for 5K, and 34:10 for 10K.
