Back in action after a year vacation, ASICS GEL-Hyper Speed 6 running shoes are ready to deliver lightning fast speed. These seamless shoes are comfortable to wear with or without socks and the drainage port in the forefoot of the out sole makes them great for triathlons. Fans of this shoe will be excited to see it back and better than ever. Ideal for fast-paced training or race day.

Upper: Welded overlays minimize stitching to reduce friction on the foot. Flat laces reduce irritation and pressure points. Open mesh provides breathable flexibility.

Midsole: Rearfoot GEL® Cushioning System attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases. F.A.S.T.™ Drop similar to geometry seen in racing flats, a low heel-toe differential reduces midsole weight to improve economy and encourage faster running. Removable insole.

Outsole: Forefoot flex grooves improve flexibility. DuraSponge® outsole enhances cushioning and durability in the forefoot. Magic Sole™ vented midsole and outsole minimizes weight and maximizes breathability.

        Comments about ASICS GEL-Hyper Speed 6 Men's Flash Yellow/Black/Red:

        I am an age-group distance running and triathlon competitor. I run exclusively in Asics, relying on the Nimbus for most training and the older Speedstars for marathon racing. This is my second pair of hyper speeds. I use them for racing 5k-13.1. They are extremely light yet provide a fair amount of cushion. I have a relatively high arch and underpronate a little (wear the outside of the heel/forefoot). The outer sole would wear quickly if I used them more often. But, as a racing-only shoe, I can use them for years. This is a great, lightweight racing shoe!

          I use these shoes for all activities. I hate to use any other since I got these. Great for sprints!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Prompt delivery and arrives in good condition. Customer service is the best. Rarely do companies inform one as to the status of the order if there is a problem.

          I do recommend adding the small cost of delivery to be sure UPS does the entire delivery. "Free" means the last transport will be done by USPS, and I have had negative results with that.

          Great replacement for Skyspeed

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about ASICS GEL-Hyper Speed 6 Men's Flash Yellow/Black/Red:

          Previously I was using Skyspeed-2 for almost every run, however that model was discontinued so I had to find something new. I heard that DS-Trainer-19 should be almost the same as Skyspeed but I didn't like them. So I got Hyperspeed-6 and have been very happy with them. They are the light-weight shoes I have ever wore - it almost feels that you don't have shoes at all. I use them for all distances from 800m to 42km.

            I use these shoes for any event involving the feet. I really like the light feel and flexibility. Whether sprinting, easy running or walking, I have never had better all-around shoes. I sincerely hope Asics does not discontinue these shoes. I have already purchased a few extra pairs "just in case!"

            A real fast light racing flat..!

            By Anonymous

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about ASICS GEL-Hyper Speed 6 Men's Flash Yellow/Black/Red:

            A fast, light racing flat. Definitely lets you push a little harder and race a little quicker. Reasonably well-cushioned for such a light shoe. The distances you can race in it will probably be dictated by your weight. Well-done Asics..!
