The standard (medium) width for women is B, while the standard width for men is D. Shoe boxes and labels will only identify widths other than standard. Within the shoes, wide and narrow widths are identified on the label, underneath the tongue — ie. T005N(2E).

When is additional width needed?
Visible stretching or bulging on the outsides of forefoot materials is a good indicator that additional width may be needed. These sizes are available in many of our Running and Training shoes. In some cases, men can wear women’s styles to achieve a narrow fit and women can wear men’s to get a wide. If this is needed, please use the references above to determine comparable size lengths. Please note that the differences of width between narrow, standard, wide, and extra wide are usually only a couple millimeters and are proportional to the size of the shoe. Most additional width will be found in the forefoot.

Product Details

The NOVABLAST™ 2 shoe is a great way to meet your training goals while moving towards a clear mindset. For the second version of this series, we wanted to create a smoother and more responsive feel underfoot. Part of our CELEBRATION OF SPORT pack, this style features a vibrant colorway that recognizes the positive influences that sports bring to athletes.

The heel stabilizer is designed to improve support while producing a smoother stride.By fine-tuning the FF BLAST™ cushioning, the shoe offers a softer landing and a more energetic rebound. The outsole's wider basenet create a more balanced landing while propelling your foot forward.



Width: D standard - STANDARD

For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size* for men is a 2E. Find out more about widths.

pronation

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The NOVABLAST 2 is made for Underpronation, and Neutral.

Under
Neutral

Severe Over

Underpronation

Foot Type

High arches

PUSH OFF

The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.

Neutral

Foot Type

Normal size arches

PUSH OFF

There is even distribution from the front of the foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The foot lands on the outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Product Features

Ahar Outsole

Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. ASICS High Abrasion Rubber is used in heavy wear areas to extend the life of the shoe.

Engineered Jacquard Mesh Upper

A one-layer engineered mesh minimises rubbing between the foot and the upper to create a super snug, glove-like fitting experience. A unique combination of closed and open weave patterns optimises flexibility and breathability.

Flytefoam Blast Midsole

Lightweight, midsole foam with energetic and highly responsive cushioning and bounce for an efficient ride.

Internal Heel Counter

The internal plastic structure of the shoe which wraps around the heel of your foot. It holds the heel in position during the movements of running improving support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jezzabro from Great! Switched over from the Nimbus Really happy with these shoes. I switched over from the Nimbus and i find these much better especially for cushioning and speed

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amit from ASICS If you are looking to get that extra cushion .. this is the one to go for… reduces fatigue by a lot and I go at least an extra 300M with this pair.. loving it

Rated 5 out of 5 by audprof from Turned me into a believer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I confess: I did not like the first NovaBlast and I don't use it often. So I was hesitant when I tried this version, and I was almost immediately sold. The cushioning is ideal for me (a slightly overweight runner), and the propulsion felt great on hard surfaces. Felt really comfortable with width (I'm wide footed).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul Nicholas from Great shoe, fit for purpose. Great recovery and volume shoe. Would have loved these to be 5mm drop but happy that Asics at least bought them down from the Novablast 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MKSyd from Super comfortable! I bought this last month online, and for someone who doesn't usually buy shoes online, I was pleasantly surprised with the fit and comfort of the shoe. The maximum comfort really pays off and I strongly recommend buying this if your feet get sore or tired - or any maximum comfort shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tcha from Novablast 2 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Brilliant cushioning and stability, capable of a variety of paces but ideal for recovery runs. Brilliant!
