Read our review of the ASICS Novablast 3


You’ll feel a spring in your step when running in the ASICS Novablast 3.

The Novablast 3 now features FF BLAST™ PLUS foam that creates a more energizing rebound coupled with a trampoline-inspired outsole design. ASICS also added more cushioning, while making the shoe significantly lighter with its new midsole compound. Reviewers loved the light, bouncy ride in our ASICS Novablast 3 review.

A heel stabilizer supports the foot to give you a more balanced stride, while the gusseted tongue wing fit system improves the midfoot fit and reduces any tongue sliding. Inspired by geometric origami, the upper not only looks fast, but the new engineered monofilament mesh keeps the foot cool and comfortable as your run heats up.

The ASICS Novablast 3 is a great everyday trainer that provides a lively, cushioned ride.

Everyday Training

What’s New

ASICS Novablast 3 is even more comfortable and lighter thanks to its brand new upper. A new engineered monofilament mesh upper adds breathability to keep your feet cool. The new gusseted tongue and more supportive heel design give you a better fit than previous versions. Plus, they added FF BLAST PLUS foam (and an additional millimeter of stack height) to give you more cushion and bounce. All of these changes make it approximately 30g lighter than the ASICS Novablast 2.

Who It’s Best For

This is a great daily trainer for beginners and more experienced runners alike. It is comfortable and bouncy whether you are walking the dog or running a marathon.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love the lightweight, responsive and cushioned ride of ASICS Novablast 3.


At least 75% of the shoe’s main upper material is made with recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions. The sockliner is produced with the solution dying process that reduces water usage by approximately 33% and the carbon emission by approximately 45% compared to conventional dyeing technology.

Novablast 3. Narrow. Tough on peroneal tendon

JB 6 months ago Verified Purchase

Solid shoe after being broken in. I would recommend the newer version (Novablast 4) or the Gel Kayano if you have any ankle instability.

These shoes are great! Very light and comfortable. These are the first ASICS I have had in a long time. Very springy and the toe room is great. I would recommend these for any runner.

Incredible shoes!

Jondoe2022 10 months ago Verified Purchase

These shoes are simple incredible. I typically only get around 300 miles out of any brand running shoe but I think I can get 400 out of these. Currently I'm around 325mi and the heel isn't even starting to wear out. Just an amazing shoe for speed work tempos easy days and long runs.

Nova Blast 3’s

Alan 1 year ago Verified Purchase

This is an excellent daily trainer! I’ve put 200 miles on it really fast! The treads are holding up well! It is a versatile trainer and one I choose more often than not in my training cycle. I’ve done recovery runs long runs with intervals and find it picks up the pace nicely. If you’re looking for a shoe that can do many things this is the one. Now the outsole has been mentioned but I’ve had no problem running in all conditions. Like all shoes you’ll find some slippage after extensive mileage. It did run a little long but I just went a half size down. The toe box is comfy. An excellent all around training shoe!

I got my boyfriend these as a Christmas gift. He loves the bouncy. Also he does all most all his long running in the shoe now. Because it is so comfortable.

Asics Novablst 3 don't believe the hype

Pete D 1 year ago Verified Purchase

the shoe build quality is outstanding. i believe it is over hyped when it comes to run quality. I also have the Saucony Triumph 20 and although slightly heavier it gives me a better energy return over the Novablast3. As for the fit it also runs long so order a half size smaller. I am going to return this shoe because even though i tightened the laces as much as possible i still felt it sliding as i ran. This is very disappointing as i was going to run in the at the Las Vegas Rock and Roll Marathon. instead i will take my Triumph 20s
