6.8 ounces in a men’s size 9 makes this a very lightweight shoe for races and training runs. It also looks great, a huge bonus in today’s running shoe environment. The Gel Lyte33 3 is designed for neutral runners and underpronators. It has an almost seamless upper and has the Solyte™ Midsole (pretty standard for Asics shoes now) to maximize performance while minimizing weight. We’ve found that shoes with a Solyte™ Midsole get softer and more cushiony after a few wears. Heel Height: 17 mm , Forefoot Height: 11 mm means that this shoe has a 6mm drop.
