skeptical at first, but the shoe is fantastic,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-DS Racer 9 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I've been a fan of the GEL-DS series. I loved my GEL-DS Trainer 15s but can't find them in my size anymore (should've bought a few pairs last year). Opted to go with the Racer 9s and am really glad I did. The toebox is narrower than the GEL-DS fit I'm used to and I was a little nervous the first time I strapped them on. But, it turns out it's a non-factor; they fit great and they are so light - it's almost like wearing a traditional racing flat. In my mind - these shoes are the best combo of fit/weight/minimalist support that I've experienced. If I could get them in a color that didn't look like I just walked out of a Japanese anime cartoon that involved angry neon clowns fighting each other, I would buy 3 more pairs right now.
