ASICS Metaspeed Sky and Edge Paris Details and Initial Video Review

Video by Michael Ellenberger

ASICS Metaspeed Edge Paris ($250) ASICS Metaspeed Sky Paris ($250)

With the Paris editions of the Metaspeed Edge and Sky, ASICS brings to the Edge and Sky a new FF Turbo + foam that is 8% lighter, has 8.2% greater energy return and is 6% softer. This new foam is said by ASICS to increase the volume of foam that can return energy by 12% in the Sky and 20% in the Edge with the Edge getting 3mm more forefoot cushion than the earlier “+” version. 

The approach of a higher placed (and now wider) carbon plate for “stride” runners in the Sky and a lower more “cadence” or rolling location stride for the Edge is unchanged.

Both racers are now 39.5mm heel 34.5 mm forefoot in stack height.  They weigh a much lower approx. 6.5 oz / 185 g US9 for the Edge (-25g) and 6.2 oz / 176g for the Sky. The Sky now comes in below the weight of the Vaporfly 3 and the Edge at its weight, with both having 3mm more front cushion than the Nike.

We have only had them a few days but Michael has started testing both of them and shares all the details and his first run impressions in the video below.

I'm excited about the new ASICS Metaspeed Edge and Sky with the improved FF Turbo+ foam! The increased energy return and softer feel sound like great improvements, and I'm curious to see how the different carbon plate placements affect each shoe's performance.
