Who should buy the ASICS Solution Speed FF Clay

This is a modified version of the Solution Speed 3 that features the FlyteFoam midsole unit. It is a solid option if you:

  • Need a shoe that provides a stable foot-hugging property and engineered to grant comfort in a remarkably lightweight makeup.
  • Prefer a shoe that allows the user to flexibly glide on the court while still capturing the needed support.

Excellent durability

ASICS designed the outsole of this Solution Speed trainer with the proprietary AHAR or ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber compound. Such material is explicitly laid out in heavy-impact zones or specific areas that are prone to immediate wear. 

ASICS Solution Speed FF Clay rubber outsole

The AHAR component, which is also used in high durability car tires, grants twice as much abrasion resistance as the conventional rubber outsole units.  

This clay-specific tennis footgear is carved with a herringbone tread pattern that’s designed to grant enough traction without collecting much dirt. Such outsole composition is intended to provide flexible maneuverability on dirt clay. 

Lightweight foam

ASICS incorporated the FlyteFoam Lyte cushioning technology found in its running shoes to this speed trainer. FlyteFoam is intended not to put much toll on the feet as it’s more than 50 percent lighter than conventional midsole foams. 

ASICS Solution Speed FF Clay cushion

Aside from its ultra-lightweight attribute, this tech offers adaptive cushioning as well. Within this spec are organic fibers that compress and spring back in between strides. So this sponge is conceptualized to take in as much load as possible and dispense it as the foot readies for the next step. 

Shock-absorption ASICS Gel pads

Complementing the FlyteFoam cushioning tech is another trademark ASICS innovation, the Gel pads. Made of silicon-based pouches, these are strategically placed in the rearfoot and forefoot to absorb impact and create smooth and soft landings.

The ASICS Gel pad on the rear side can take up forces before they reach the heel. The forefoot Gel cushions the ball of the foot before toe offs. These are placed in such areas of the midsole to help reduce injuries and improve court performance. 

Stability provider

Working as a reinforcement for the arch is the Twisstrust system. This unit stabilizes the midfoot for a smoother slide. It intends to simultaneously allow freedom of movement at the forefoot while locking the heel for a secure fit. 

Toe protection and flexible upper

The upper is wrapped in synthetic and mesh that offers flexibility. Those who attack from the baseline to the net, as well as baseline grinders, are offered the freedom to move with ease.

ASICS Solution Speed FF Clay toe protection

A polyurethane made PGuard toe protector provides an added layer of security at the forefoot. This puts more life to the shoe since toe dragging during serves and volleys are inevitable in tennis.

Comfortable fit of the Solution Speed FF Clay

This shoe also offers Featherweight ASICS Speed Technology (F.A.S.T.) heel construction that hugs the foot for a comfortable fit. 

ASICS Solution Speed FF Clay laces

It comes with a removable Ortholite sockliner for added comfort. This can wick moisture to keep the foot sweat-free especially during long hours of play. It can be removed to accommodate medical orthotics for a more customized fit.
