What's new?

While the woven mesh upper remains the same, ASICS made two changes to the midsole. First, their FF TURBO PLUS foam replaces the FF BLAST TURBO used in the previous iteration. The new foam offers a softer ride, making this a great choice to go the distance.

Second, FF BLAST PLUS ECO replaces the FF BLAST PLUS foam from the original Superblast, made with 24% bio-based content and a lighter, more energetic experience.

The dual-layer midsole combines to create a complimentary soft-to-bouncy ratio underfoot that feels just as good during tempo miles as it does during long, slow runs.

Lastly, an ASICSGRIP outsole enhances durability and traction. The deep grooves we saw in the first version have been tightened up, preventing debris from collecting underfoot.

Just like the last version, the Superblast 2 comes in unisex sizing, so women should order a size and a half down (for example, if you wear a women’s size 8 you would order a men’s size 6.5).

Keep an eye out for our full review coming soon.
