ASICS’ new Blazing Fast is a replacement for the Pirhana SP. Like its predecessor, it’s very light, only 4.4 ounces in a men’s size 11. The upper is a thin minimesh supported by a welded film midfoot cage and synthetic suede overlays at the heel. The toe support is an extension of the sueded tongue.
