ASICS NOVABLAST provides a unique midsole geometry entered for superior bounce.
Designed with a propulsive trampoline effect, this soft and lightweight shoe sits higher off the ground to serve up lasting comfort even over long distances. Its built-in reflective details make the shoe a great pick for low-light conditions.
New FLYTEFOAM BLAST midsole
The midsole design of NOVABLAST takes inspiration from a trampoline, letting the runner perform side by side strides, helping them find an ideal tempo while running.
Unlike all other ASICS shoes, this running shoe contains no GEL cushioning but a large amount of FLYTEFOAM Blast, making it the ASICS shoe with the highest energy return to date. With an energetic bounce, it gives back the most energy to the runner in every step.
Engineered jacquard mesh upper
While the midsole may attract the most attention, the upper on the NOVABLAST deserves a mention.
Designed with soft and lightweight mesh upper, the NOVABLAST delivers excellent airflow and ventilation, keeping your feet cooler and fresher throughout your run.
AHARPLUS rubber outsole
ASICS is using their AHARPLUS rubber which comes with more resistance and traction. It is strategically positioned in critical areas for exceptional durability.
Who is the ASICS NOVABLAST best for?
