Pros

Excellent for uphill running - broken grip design provides fantastic traction for full, confident strides

Lighter and more flexible than the Speedstar 3 - excellent option for neutral runners who do not require special heel/instep engineering

1 agrees

Asymmetric lacing pattern is beneficial in terms both comfort and efficiency - follows bone structure of foot to promote natural motion

1 agrees

Very comfortable - lightweight design is excellent for longer runs and especially beneficial for speed/interval training

Cons

Lightweight design is prone to excessive wear - heel is likely to "give way" after ~300 miles of use

1 agrees

Bottom component is glued, not stitched - may fully detach upon extensive strenuous use

1 agrees

Tends to run at least one full size large - may cause difficulty/frustration amongst online shoppers

Edit

 

The Asics GEL-Speedstar 4 is a running shoe aimed at longer distance runners with an underpronated to neutral gait. This is a departure from other shoes in the Asics GEL series, in that it uses Solyte 45 in the midsole to maximize comfort. The Trusstic System is changed to accommodate longer runs, and the upper is designed asymmetrically to follow the shape of the bones in the runner's foot. The open mesh upper is very breathable, and lacks any synthetic leathers that might prevent air flow. The GEL Cushioning System is also in place at the heel to absorb strong impacts.
