My Rating

Use - The Asics Hyper LD 4 is perfect for both middle-distance to long-distance running competitions. These meets can range from 800 meters all the way up to 10000 meters. 

Spike Type - Ideal for track rubber surfaces, pyramid pins are assigned to the running shoe. These are detachable for lightweight, versatile traction. These also measure ¼ inch in length for optimal grip on the ground. 

Spike Plate - A nylon plate is affixed to the track shoe for amplified durability and traction on all surface types. The plate also keeps a light frame for less bulk, heightening the speed of the runner.

The Asics Hyper LD 4 only features one refinement. This is the integration of a new open mesh upper. Aside from aiding in breathability, the upper material securely wraps the foot in place. 

The rest of the track running spike's makeup is patterned after the previous model. For instance, the same nylon spike plate is incorporated on the outsole. It is intended for a durable grip on the track surface.

This model still flaunts a full-length EVA midsole. It is responsible for delivering responsiveness and cushioning.

The Asics Hyper LD 4 only runs in men’s sizing measurements. Women are advised to go 1.5 sizes down to secure accurate fit and size. 

The aspects of the running platform affecting its fit are the upper materials and the EVA foam insole. The upper components are engineered to supply lockdown and comfort. On the other hand, the EVA footbed delivers plush cushioning and support within the foot chamber.

The outsole of the Asics Hyper LD 4 sports a nylon plate. The plate exhibits high-strength properties for protection against highly abrasive track elements. It also amplifies slip resistance for stable performance on the tracks. As the outer underfoot cover of the platform, the nylon plate serves a steady push-off to the runner.

As mentioned, the midsole compartment of the Hyper LD 4 flaunts a full-length EVA midsole. The same midsole element is present in the Adidas Distancestar. The EVA foam offers ample cushioning for responsiveness and comfort. It keeps a low and lightweight profile for less bulk. It is also composed of sturdy materials, withstanding natural wear and tear.

The Asics Hyper LD 4’s upper integrates the new open mesh and synthetic leather materials. The combination of these two promotes lockdown and snug fit. These offer foot-conforming attributes, following the natural shapes and patterns of the foot. Moreover, these upper components are ultra-light, making it ideal for distance races. The upper composition of the track shoe solicits maximum ventilation for a healthy foot environment. 

The upper configuration also features slip lasting. This is when the upper is designed in a bootie construction before being glued into the midsole. This fashion is intended to trim down the weight of the running platform.
