This is like no other ASICS shoe. FLIGHTFOAM Blast, a brand-new foam, is soft and incredibly bouncy. The one-piece design, with GEL positioned in the heel and forefoot, creates a soft and plush sensation underfoot. At faster speeds, the foam responds and returns more energy for amazing responsiveness. A highly technical upper ensures great support but with a ‘barely there’ feel. The new NOVABLAST will help make slow runs feel more comfortable and then help you accelerate to new speeds on faster ones.
