Step into your next level of speed with the ASICS METASPEED Sky carbon-plated racer. ASICS athlete and professional marathoner Sara Hall sported an early prototype of the METASPEED Sky as she became the second fastest American marathoner, finishing her 26.2 at a blistering 2:20:32 at the Marathon Project in Chandler, Arizona. But even if you’re not a pro marathoner, or prefer shorter races, the ASICS METASPEED Sky has a lot to offer to runners looking to kick it up a notch on the roads or tracks. A strong rocker design built from ASICS’ lightest and softest FF Blast Turbo cushioning works with a full-length carbon plate to create a snappy and speedy ride. ASICS designed the upper to be feather light and streamlined. Plus, it’s engineered from 100 percent recycled polyester. “Every part of the METASPEED feels so purposeful. It’s lightweight and streamlined. There’s no excess cushioning or structure in the upper. It gives you exactly what you need to run fast,” said one Fleet Feet reviewer. Our reviewers put the ASICS METASPEED Sky to the test through miles of speed work and tempo runs. Here’s what they thought.
