DECOUPLED PEBAX SPIKE PLATE - Plate in the sole into which the spikes are screwed which enhances the natural foot movement through improved flexibility. SHARKDUO OUTSOLE - Sole material which provides increased traction on various track surfaces. ASYMMETRICAL LACING DESIGN - Lacing which follows the natural curve of the foot giving a better fit and reducing the potential for irritation. SOLYTE MIDSOLE MATERIAL - Spongy layer between the sole and upper designed to absorb shock and cushion the foot. Solyte is a lighter material than SpEVA and EVA and features enhanced durability. ECSAINE & OPEN MESH UPPER - Upper materials which create a glove-like fit with maximum breathability. REMOVABLE SPIKES - Spikes in the sole which can be removed to allow customisation of the spike configuration.

- Decent racing spike but with room for improvement Review by Chris
Price Value Quality
Cushioning is good but may be too much and heavy (like most asics shoes) for shorter distances e.g. 800m/1500m.
All in all a good shoe but would suggest trying out the upgraded version, the asics Gunlap, which may improve on some of the Japan Thunder 4's shortcomings.
As for shipping/delivery, rather punctual and came in good condition, with 10 pyramid spike pins and a spike wrench as well. (Posted on 01/02/2015)
