Shoe Name: ASICS MAGIC SPEED™ road running shoes (Red/White)

Terrain: Women’s road running shoes

Shoe type: Neutral

Other features: Lightweight running shoe with GUIDESOLE™ technology and stack of FLYTEFOAM™ Blast.


To test this road running shoe, I embarked on a 10km moderate run on track terrain, athletics stadium. It was a nice super chilled speed run with a maintained pace of 4:45/km -4:50/km without any breaks and covered the 10km in 49min10s. I enjoyed running with the ASICS MAGIC SPEED trainers, I could literally feel how lightweight the shoe is and allowing my body to move forward. Additionally, while running, my foot was easily propelled forward, owing to the best GUIDESOLE™ technology feature the shoe has. I was amazed about the excellent cushioning (stacked with FLYTEFOAM™ Blast) the shoe had regardless of it being lightweight, so impressive. With this in mind, it goes without saying that I love the shoes and their technology is beyond.

ASICS MAGIC SPEED is an excellent shoe for regular speed training and working on that PB you have been chasing, and I highly recommend it.

Keep an eye for my next shoe review, get yourself or try out some ASICS MAGIC SPEED, and happy running! :)
