Right out of the box, the Asics Women's Gel-DS Racer 9 Running Shoes cuddle up to your feet and gives them a great big hug. Now, that might sound a little like pandering to your comfort zone, but that couldn't be further from the truth for this race-bred road runner. Everything about this shoe is designed to feel close, responsive, and lightweight, the ideal formula for a 6. 2 ounce shoe designed to conquer marathons and long-distances foot races. Slip this shoe on your foot and immediately you'll notice that the heel fit is a little narrow, the midfoot wider, and the forefoot is surprisingly accommodating for a variety of foot shapes and sizes. The 10mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) is moderate, which puts your foot in a position that feels similar to a traditional road running shoethis allows you to switch between heel, midfoot, and forefoot striking as needed. Every foot strike feels cushioned thanks to a Gel pod at the heel; Asics' Trusstic midsole construction and Solyte midsole material smooth things out as your roll through your stride. The Racer 9 delivers a little support with its DuoMax Support system that provides a touch of medial pronation control without adding significantly to the weight of this shoe. One last detail bears mentioning, and it's the ventilated Magic Sole outsole that delivers both traction and fresh air for your toes. Asics divides its road and trail shoes into different collections, and the Racer 9 falls firmly into the Speed Collection. Within this collection, it is most like the speedy Gel-Noosafast; the Racer 9 weighs a little more, but it's also more cushioned and supportive. Designed to hug every curve of your foot and help it on its way, the Racer 9 is the ideal balance of comfort and performance for long-distance road racing.
