At the core of DynaFlyte is FlyteFoam, ASICS’ patented lightweight and responsive cushioning technology — first trialed in MetaRun in November 2015. DynaFlyte marks the first use of FlyteFoam in its purest form, through a full-length midsole engineered to deliver lightweight and highly-functional cushioning.

Equipped with a full-length FlyteFoam midsole, DynaFlyte meets the highest level of cushioning standards among ASICS running footwear.


 The ISS Promise


DynaFlyte was designed and developed at the Institute of Sport Science (ISS), ASICS’ research & development center in Kobe, Japan. ISS, the beating heart of ASICS, is where countless pieces of data from amateur and professional runners over the past 30 yearsare curated and analyzed to inform product development. ISS has put ASICS at the forefront of research in running. Their rigorous approach to product development has led to the discovery of the breakthrough technology, FlyteFoam.


DynaFlyte embodies ISS’ human-centric science approach to product development and commitment to continuous improvement, bringing new possibilities to runners looking for performance and speed at any distance.

With Dynaflyte, runners can fully experience FlyteFoam technology at its purest. We are excited to launch DynaFlyte, and see how FlyteFoam will be able to help runners unlock their speed” said Dr.Tsuyoshi Nishiwaki, Executive Officer, Senior General Manager, ASICS Institute of Sport Science.


DynaFlyte in Action


ASICS sponsored a global launch event in New York City on June 14th, showcasingDynaFlyte, its key product release of the year and its featured technology, FlyteFoam. During the launch ASICS introduced an interactive installation, the DynaFlyte Deck, a specialized running track. The event was designed to bring to life the shoe’s full experience and consumer benefits.


Developed in cooperation with ISS, it is programmed with colored lighting and sounds that offer runners on the track different drills to experience and feel DynaFlyte’s core benefits – lightweight, cushioning, and the potential for speed. 


Media and influencer attendees were able to test-run the product on ASICS’ custom-made DynaFlyte Deck.

ASICS elite athletes Ryan Hall and Candace Hill, as well as scientists from ISS, also participated in the global launch event.


ASICS’ Promotions and Training Specialist, DawidVisser has rigorously tested Dynaflyte over the past few months and has been suitably impressed:


From the 1st step in comfort to the step you take 2 hours into your run the Dynaflyte marries the mixture of comfortable cushioning and light-weight perfectly. Although the shoe has a simple sleek design it offers exceptional comfort and cushioning.


This shoe can finally be the answer to performance athletes needing well cushioned lighter-weight training shoes as well as the weekend warriors wanting a lighter shoe to chase their personal best times."
