Get ready to run fast in the ASICS Magic Speed™ 2.

ASICS updated the Magic Speed to make it more versatile for both tempo runs and races. A full-length carbon and TPU plate gives you plenty of pop to propel your feet forward, crafting a smoother and more propulsive rebound during the toe-off phase of your stride. The top layer has FF Blast™ Plus cushioning to give you a more responsive rebound while keeping the shoe lightweight.

A new double jacquard upper provides a better fit while you run. The upper is durable enough for everyday training, but light and breathable enough for racing. Designers also retooled the shoe to make it fit and feel more comfortable on your foot.

The ASICS Magic Speed 2 is light enough for racing, responsive enough for speedwork and durable enough for daily training.

What’s New

ASICS rehauled the Magic Speed 2 to make it fit better and give you more pop. Designers used the same shoe last as the MetaSpeed Sky to give you a better fit and feel. They also changed the upper from an engineered mesh to a double jacquard mesh upper for a more secure fit. ASICS changed the ¾ plate and made it into a full-length plate that provides extra rebound during the toe-off phase and smoother transitions. They also added FF Blast Plus as a top layer of cushioning to give even more bounce. The shoe overall is lighter than the previous version as well.

Who It’s Best For

The ASICS Magic Speed 2 is best for runners looking for a light, fast and responsive shoe that can be used for racing as well as everyday training. It’s also a great option for those who want a carbon-plated shoe without spending too much.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love how propulsive and fast you feel in the ASICS Magic Speed 2.


Approximately 30% of the upper’s main material is designed with recycled polyester. The sockliner’s sustainable dyeing process helps reduce overall water usage by approximately 33% and carbon emissions by approximately 45%.

I’m split on my like and dislike for these shoes. The shoes fit slightly shorter than other brands. Close to true to size. The cushion and bottom half of the shoe is comfy and super fast. The upper pinches and a lot of pressure on the foot. I tried many different lace patterns and had to use a runners loop to keep my heel from slipping. These are designed for a narrow foot. The wide version of these shoes were too wide. This shoe works but is not great for someone with a normal foot width. However the shoe was really fast. I have more than 200 miles on the shoes. After this many miles everything still looks in great shape. Lower is holding strong upper looks nice and holding together great. The laces also lock really tight. Once you tie them the laces aren’t letting go or slipping.
