For efficient runners, it is hard to beat these shoes. They are very responsive and quick off the ground. I would only recommend them, however, if you are and experienced, light, and fast runner.

It is hard to say much more than that about these shoes. They are light, snug, responsive, and most importantly fast. It feels like my feet just spring right off the road when I run tempo in these shoes.

They are very light, so inefficient runners be forewarned.

I just starting to discover the joys of ultra lite racing flats. I had a pair of the Piranha for a few weeks and am amazed. My turnover is quicker, there is more spring in my stride, and my pace is quicker. I suggest that people take it slow with these shoes. My feet did hurt a little after the first few runs

I really like these shoes, but use them purely for racing. I do that not only because they are really light, fast, and thin, but because they are so expensive. I wish Asics would try to keep the price down for use poor students.

Asics sets the standard with these flats. You get the lightness and flexibility of running barefoot, and the protection of an extreme racing flat. I run in plenty of Asics flats. Nobody makes them better, but these Piranhas are their best yet.

I just got these and I'm amazed at how light and fast they are. I'm not too keen on how they look, but I guess that's not important. I've never had such a light pair of racing flats. I'm looking to set a few PRs in these.
