This is the Asics Lethal DS 3 football boot, which has been released after the highly successful Lethal DS 2. The new Lethal DS 3 features HG10mm technology, a stability heel wrap and super comfortable upper design in 2 striking colours. The Lethal DS is a brilliant performer and offers a comfortbale and light weight boot.
According to Asics, this range of football boots is based around two very contrasting pillars of design, weight-reduction and player comfort.
Firstly the weight reduction – the Asics Lethal DS IT 3 cuts the weight by 35 grammes from it’s predecessor – the Asics Lethal DS IT 2. This drop in weight has come from the introduction of one of Asics Running shoe technologies; the SoLyte polymer.
Whilst used in running shoes to enhance the strength through the middle of the foot, Asics have used it here to create the outsole under the heel of the boot, resulting in a drop in weight over previous models.
The SoLyte polymer also has the advantage of having more of a spring than the usual TPU you’d see in many outsoles. Asics claim that this added ‘spring’ in the step makes the Asics Lethal DS IT 3 one of the most comfortable on the market, based on the added support and compression of this section of the boot.
