Features & Benefits:

  • FluidAxis: Anatomically correct deep flex grooves have been aligned to the joints of the foot, enabling the shoe to recognize, adapt, and respond to the athlete's exact load and positional change from first impact to toe-off
  • F.A.S.T. Drop: Similiar to the geometry seen in racing flats, a low heel-to-toe differential reduces midsole weight to improve economy and encourage faster running
  • F.A.S.T. Heel: Lightweight heel construction comfortably hugs the foot while minimizing structural weight
  • F.A.S.T. Sole: Minimal outsole material is positioned only in high abrasive areas
  • F.A.S.T. Ride: A firmer Solyte Midsole increases responsiveness and enhances the ride from contact to toe-off
  • Solyte Midsole Material: A lighter weight midsole compound that features enhanced cushioning and durability
  • Seamless Construction: Reduces the potential for irritation and friction caused by traditional stitches and seams

      I chose these shoes to be my training shoe for Ironman Chattanooga last year. They worked so well in training that I bought another pair to break in and be my race shoe. They held up well to the pounding and provided enough cushioning for the entire race. Very lightweight and great airflow!

          These shoes have been very nice so far. I have done two speed workouts(400m repeats) and they have been comfortable and fast. I usually wear stability shoes for long runs but like less support for track type workouts. These are super light and have a nice large, not huge, toe box. No crushed toes in these but they do hug the heel and midfoot nicely.

            This is a nice, lightweight, comfortable running shoe, best for road or pavement use. I am a size 9, but have found that I need to go up a half size with Asics shoes for a perfect fit. I am susceptible to plantar faciitis, and did experience beginning heel discomfort during my first time on the road in these shoes, but after subsituting the innersoles with Superfeet Green inserts this immediately resolved. This is my first pair of Gel-Lyte33s, and so far I like them, and will buy another pair when they wear out.

                100 miles so far. Shoes have held up well. They don not get wet quickly which is good with recent cold climates to run through. A lightweight shoe which gives a firm accounting of the ground run on.

                  I race and train in these shoes and have bought seven pairs of them. They fit well, do not cause injuries, are very light, and offer the optimum balance between cushioning and road feel. In these shoes, I've raced distances from 5k to the half marathon, and even did the Pikes Peak Ascent in them. I use them for triathlons, too. My only complaint is that they wear out fast--- and I only weight 130 lbs -- but that's expected in racing shoes. Wish I had these shoes 20 years ago!

                    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Lyte33 3 Running Shoe:

                    I am training for my 7th marathon. The previous 6 marathons have been run in Speedstars and Kinvaras, but I was looking for an alternative because I am not a huge fan of the latest iteration of these shoes. I was especially disappointed with the Speedstar 6's, which felt tight and the shoelaces were a joke. I was hoping that the Speedstar 7's would be better, but I have a feeling Asics may not be continuing this line.

                    I purchased Lyte 33 2 and Lyte 33 3 thinking I was going to return one of them. I am keeping both, but I like the fit of the Lyte 33 3 better than the 2. Lyte 33 2 is a nice shoe with great cushioning, but I find it a bit mushy and a bit clumsier than the Lyte 33 3.

                    Gel Lyte 33 3 have a great road feel. It feels stable and controlled, without being too hard, albeit I prefer more minimalist shoes. The shoe fits great and they spent a few extra pennies to provide a proper shoelace that doesn't untie, and isn't too short, like the Speedstar 6's. The shoe feels similar to the Kinvara's but it feels less constrained and more comfortable for me.

                    Needless to say these will be my marathon race shoes this November. If you like neutral, performance shoes like Kinvara or Speedstars, definitely try the Gel Lyte 33 3. I just placed an order for another pair because inevitably Asics will change something in the next version, as they always do.

                        These shoes are amazingly light, even in a size 12, I had to check the box to make sure both shoes were in there. I read a lot of reviews of people complaining that the soles wear out fast, but that seems to be the norm for ultra light weight performance neutral shoes, my Kinvara 4s seemed to wear a bit sooner than normal as well, but I'm 6'3" and weigh 225-230 on any given run day. These are super comfortable, I read reviews about toe pain and chafing around the ankle, but after 30 miles I haven't experienced any of these problems. Love these, and will definitely buy again.

                          These were ready to go out of the box. They are nice and cushioned, the minimal drop is a good training addition and the breathability is amazing. So far, so good, I'm not planning on going the distance with these, but I may use them for a 5K or maybe a 10K. I'll have to see how they feel on runs longer than 4 miles.

                              Best shoes I've owned to date. I've run with Mizuno Wave Rider 16 (would have to give this shoe the 2nd best of the bunch) & 17, Brooks Ghost/Glycerin, Saucony Kinvara 4, Nike Pegasus & Vomero. There is no comparison. Try these shoes. I normally wear a size 11 2E but in this shoe I wear size 11 D. The toe box is very comfortable and adjust to your feet. I don't normally write review but I think I have found my shoe.
