Asics Tartherzeal 3 Review: A Grippy Flat Built For Speed

Asics Tartherzeal 3

A few weeks ago I reviewed the Asics Gel Lyteracer RS 4. The Lyteracer is a Japanese racing flat that was brought to the US by Running Warehouse, and I was quite impressed by the shoe. It offered a forgiving heel, a no frills yet durable upper, and was light and responsive enough to use […]

Asics Hyperspeed 7

I was just poking around on the Running Warehouse YouTube page and came across video previews for the Asics Hyperspeed 7 and Asics DS Racer 11. The previous versions of these shoes are personal favorites – affordable, lightweight, and well cushioned for racers. Both updates look fantastic!
