The lightweight design includes ASICS new FLYTEFOAM® Blast midsole foam for an energetic bounce with each stride. The outsole of the NOVABLAST™ shoe has been designed to accentuate the energized feeling of the FLYTEFOAM® Blast technology, creating a trampoline effect that propels you forward. The NOVABLAST™ shoe is higher off the ground than most running styles, promoting improved comfort over long distances. The shoe's soft and lightweight mesh upper delivers excellent airflow, keeping your feet cooler and fresher throughout your run. Additionally, reflective details provide extra visibility in low-light conditions.
