Who should buy the ASICS Hyper MD 6

The ASICS Hyper MD 6 is a multi-function track shoe best recommended for:

  • Novice and mid-level athletes who are into multiple track running activities
  • sprints, middle-distance races, and hurdles


Profile of the ASICS Hyper MD 6

Use – The ASICS Hyper MD 6 sports multi-function performance, especially in track running meets. With its engineering, the track running spike can generate optimal performance in sprints, middle-distance races, and hurdles. 

Spike Type - Following the standard spike requirement, pyramid pins that measure 1/4 inch in length are equipped to the running shoe. 

These are perfect for track rubber surfaces, providing sufficient grip and support for a stable performance. Moreover, these spike pins are changeable for multi-surface adherence. 

Spike Plate - Similar to most track spikes, the Hyper MD 6 is configured with a Pebax plate. It is a polymer-based distance plate that maximizes the propulsion of the wearer. This is due to the rigid yet featherlight composition of the spike plate.

Adaptive lockdown fit

The ASICS Hyper MD 6 follows men's standard sizing scales. For women, it is advised that they get a size that's 1.5 lower than their usual size choice. This is intended to secure proper fit and size.

One of the technical elements influencing the wrap of the mid-distance spike is its Speed Mesh upper. It has a lockdown fit that adapts to the natural shape of the foot. 

Hyper MD 6 delivers enhanced traction

To push to the foot further into the midsole, a midfoot wrap is integrated into the shoe's design. Moreover, the EVA heel wedge of the platform amplifies support for a highly stable running performance.

The outsole composition of the Hyper MD 6 from ASICS is a combination of both rubber and Pebax plate. These are responsible for enhancing the traction of the running spike. In turn, these increase the acceleration of the runner for a winning race-day performance. 

Flexible and rigid

The Pebax plate is comprised of thermoplastic polymer that exhibits a good blend of flexibility and rigidity.

The same outsole component is present in the Nike Zoom Victory Elite 2. Because of its stiff property, the forward motion of the runner is optimized without sacrificing underfoot cushioning. 

Supportive and comfortable

On the other hand, the rubber sole provides room for foot flexion while maximizing the grip of the shoe. It also utilizes minimal bulk, adhering to the lightness of the platform.

To achieve pronounced comfort and responsiveness, an EVA heel wedge is added to the track running spike. It cradles the underfoot for extended support and comfort. This increases the plush sensation delivered to the foot as the athlete transitions from one motion to another.

Keeps the foot cool and dry

A Speed Mesh acts as the outer wrap of the Hyper MD 6. It has various perforations that serve as the airflow system of the track spike.

This promotes a healthy foot environment, free of odor and sweat. It also offers an adaptive fit for maximum lockdown. 

ASICS Hyper MD 6 provides stability and security

Complementing the upper textile of the mid-distance shoe is its midfoot wrap. It amplifies the support and stability of the wearer.

ASICS Hyper MD 6 overlay

Welded on the upper are TPU overlays that heighten the structural integrity of the platform. These also act as the external cage that encourages security. This prevents unwanted shoe removal while highlighting an irritation-free running performance.

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.
