Thinner sole than predecessors and competitors reduces weight and gives foot better feel while running

Cons

Outsole easily picks up pebbles and must be cleaned frequently as as result

Edit

 

The Asics GEL-Hyper Speed 4 is an all-purpose mid range running shoe. Unlike the Asics GEL-DS Racer 8 or GEL-Intensity, the midsole in this case is made of SpEVA material which improves bounce back and remains durable. It also uses Slip Lasting where the upper is wrapped and stitched before being glued to the midsole, making the shoe lighter and more flexible.

While these features make it different than the Asics GEL-DS Racer 8, it is similar in many other features including the vented midsole and outsole for maximized breathability. The Racing Trusstic System is also used for faster turnover and light weight.
