For the first time in awhile, I crossed the finish line of a running race in a sneaker other than the Fuzex Lyte. Two pairs of those sneakers had gotten me through two half marathons, a 10k, a 5k, and 3.5 mi race.
Then suddenly as I went to train for the next race, I realized my two pairs of Asics Fuzex Lytes were worn out and bothering my knees to run, a bad sign.
I still really liked the Fuzex Lyte, but found they lacked traction in the rain, smashed down quickly, and could be slightly under supportive on long runs.

I experimented with other Asics styles and settled on the regular Fuzex just a week before race day. I know you're not supposed to switch that close, but I needed an unworn out sneaker.
I like the the Fuzex was a similar design and featured nice plush cushioning.
The sneakers worked and I went on the run the Ted Corbitt 15k better than expected.
I recently wore them on a rainy run and had no problem with traction. I like the cushioning and so far it's holding up well. I have been running in them about 4 weeks.
But I do fine them more restrictive especially on short fast runs or when doing side motions, so I also got another pair of Fuzex Lytes.
How do they compare?
