Men's Shoes Neutral Running ASICS

ASICS NovaBlast


Feel the bounce in the new men's ASICS Novablast.

ASICS built the Novablast on top of a generous bed of Flytefoam Blast cushioning. The new foam cushions your landings and provides an energetic response with each step.

Designers crafted the unique midsole and outsole shape to promote the energizing feeling of the shoe, and its height also delivers ample protection and comfort over long distances. Even with all the foam, though, the shoe is light and fast.

On top, ASICS used a soft engineered mesh upper to keep air flowing, and reflective detailing helps keep you visible during low-light hours.

When you’re looking for the bounciest ride around, lace up the men's ASICS Novablast and get going.

ASICS delivers!

Love these shoes! Great fit. Nice and soft but still easily capable of handling the fast miles without being too soft. People are sleeping on this shoe but it’s one of the best that ASICS has ever put out. Just my humble opinion though. Don’t sleep on this shoe.

Great Shoes for People who don't need Stability, Order .5 size Down Though!

I bought a pair in my usual 10.5 and I loved them but they just felt too sloppy and my feet were just swimming around in them. My size 10 just arrived from Fleet Feet and they fit perfectly and I'm really happy that I gave these shoes another shot. They have no stability features whatsoever and the stack height is very high so if you have any concerns with stability, these are not the shoes for you. They can be a little squirrelly in turns and uneven surfaces but if you have good balance and functioning they shouldn't be a problem for you. Keep to roads and flat packed paths and watch your footing and you will absolutely love the ride. They leave your feet feeling fresh and have incredible bounce. The laces aren't great so you might want to swap them out. Don't be afraid to do a runner's loop to lock the heel down if the shoes feel a little too wobbly at first. It really helps with these.

Love these shoes

As a 70+ runner these shoes help preserve my joints and allow me to keep running! Online ordering was simple and the shoes arrived days early.

Comfy, soft and bouncy

I have ramped up my mileage and had some complaints in my under feet. Ordered these Novablasts through Fleet Feet and they haven't disappointed. They are very soft and bouncy, with lots of cushioning from the thick sole. Love these for my longer runs.
