Read our review of the ASICS MetaSpeed Sky


The men's ASICS Metaspeed Sky takes race-day speed to the next level.

The Metaspeed Sky helps boost your speed by extending your stride length. The longer stride length means you go farther with each step without increasing your cadence.

ASICS powered the shoe with a FLYTEFOAM Blast Turbo midsole. The top-tier foam is light and springy for a ride that won’t hold you back. Plus, designers added a carbon-fiber plate that guides your foot through the transition and propels you forward.

A curved outsole helps conserve more energy with each step, so you can run longer, while a proprietary rubber outsole sticks to the road without weighing you down.

Engineered for top speed on race day, the men's ASICS Metaspeed Sky gives you everything you need to chase down your PR.

What’s New

The Metaspeed Sky is the first edition of the carbon-fiber racing shoe from ASICS. A lightweight mesh upper works with the ultra-responsive foam and carbon fiber plate to deliver a race-ready ride.

Who It’s Best For

The Metaspeed Sky is a finely tuned running shoe that’s best saved for your fastest times on race day. The carbon-fiber plate makes the shoe very stiff, though, which can feel unwieldy for easier runs.

Why You’ll Love It

If you’re trying to improve your PR, you’ll love the Metaspeed Sky. It has an accommodating fit that’s great for longer races, and its responsive midsole and curved shape help propel you forward.

Definition of a Super Shoe

Michael C 2 years ago Verified Purchase

This was my first super shoe normally I just race in whatever I train in or maybe a regular carbon plated shoe. It blew away my expectations. It fits wide (for an Asics I have a wide foot high arch/instep and tend to have issues in the brand but this fit fine) or rather standard for other brands. The foam is bouncy and soft without feeling like you are sinking into the shoe. The rubber is holding up well so far as is the upper which is very airy. If I had one complaint (on a personal note I realize this might not be the case for everyone) it's that I wish it was an 8-10mm drop rather than the 5mm.

Best shoe ever!

ROBERT J 2 years ago Verified Purchase

I was looking for a shoe that would provide comfort. What I got was so much more! These shoes helped correct my form. I had gotten into some bad habits running more off my toes to protect my knees after surgeries. The Metaspeeds allowed me to land mid-foot and the carbon plate propels me forward. I’m 62 and running like I was in my 40’s.

ASICS MetaSpeed Sky Appropriately Named

Earl W 3 years ago Verified Purchase

These shoes are light very fast and easy on the feet. Compared to my Nike Next % they fit better and have a little less bounce. I highly recommend them for serious runners.
