New ASICS NOVABLAST™ Shoe Puts A Spring in Runners’ Steps
With its lightweight design, the new NOVABLAST™ gives an energetic underfoot
feel that suits a younger runner looking for a springy, fun experience.
[Thursday, 27 February 2020 – SINGAPORE] – With a unique design in the ASICS line of performance running shoes, the new ASICS NOVABLAST™ delivers an energetic ride for people looking to inject a healthy dose of fun into their running life.
The bold, eye-catching design of the NOVABLASTTM mirrors the type of runner who will suit the shoe best. Part of a new, younger generation of runners, they don’t just look for great performance from a shoe but also a sense of fun that makes them feel great and enhance their love of running.
In order to produce this sensation, the midsole design of the NOVABLAST™ takes inspiration from a trampoline, allowing runners to spring from stride to stride. The energetic ride will help runners to find their rhythm and feel their fastest.
Its new FLYTEFOAM™ Blast midsole gives the shoe a soft but responsive feeling underfoot. Despite its lightweight of approximately 275g (M) and 225g (W)1, the NOVABLAST™ midsole design gives runners an energetic spring with every stride.
The upper fabric is a mesh that provides excellent airflow for a cooler run. It is engineered to be not only soft and comfortable but also strong for hold and support – without any need for stitched or welded overlays. The sole of the NOVABLAST™ uses ASICS’ renowned AHARPLUS™ rubber, which has triple the abrasion resistance of our traditional outsole and promises runners improved durability and better traction.
The NOVABLAST™ will be available in Singapore for men and women from ASICS retail, online stores and specialist running outlets at S$199 from Thursday, 27 February 2020. Visit ASICS NOVABLAST™ (scheduled to go live on 2/25 at 13:00 SGT) and www.ASICS.com for more information.
Junichiro Tateishi, General Manager, Footwear Function Research Department, ASICS Institute of Sport Science, said: “The new FLYTEFOAMTM Blast midsole has been designed for more than just supporting a runner during their run; it has been designed for play and enjoyment.”
