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.

The perfect shoe for daily training

Jen 5 months ago Verified Purchase

I decided to give the Novablast 3's a try based on their excellent reviews on the Doctor's of Running's podcast. I have not been disappointed. They are light but bouncy especially in the toe box. I am probably going to buy a second pair. They are the perfect daily trainer!!

Could be great

Cheryl 6 months ago Verified Purchase

Love these shoes but tongue design is off. I have scares from the split tongue rubbing front of lieer legs. Solution wear taller socks.

Love them like a 4th child.

Incredibly comfortable fun shoe to run in on both road and non-technical trails. Not a great deal of grip but I have had no issues with slipping. I would be careful in wet or icy conditions. I look forward to every run in these shoes.

Really comfortable shoes with one minor flaw

Allison 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I really love these shoes. Switching from Hoka to ASICS I've been really impressed with the foam responsiveness and comfort. I use them for daily easy runs and uptempo workouts. The one minor flaw is that the tread on the bottom becomes very slick in cold wet weather. Luckily I live in Texas so we don't have much of that. But if I lived in another climate I probably wouldn't buy these again. The tread becomes so slick it feels like running on ice. For running in dry conditions though these shoes are awesome!

3 is the best yet!

Jennifer 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I became a Novablast fan after the 2 came out and 3 is even better! The midsole seems to have more cushion which I appreciate. Love the new color ways too!
