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™ shoe is for neutral runners seeking a responsive running experience. This lightweight design includes our FLYTEFOAM™ Blast midsole foam for an energetic bounce with each stride.

The outsole and midsole of the NOVABLAST™ shoe have been designed to help promote the energized feeling of the FLYTEFOAM™ Blast technology, creating a "trampoline" effect that propels you forward. The NOVABLAST™ shoe is also higher off the ground than most running styles, promoting improved comfort over longer distances.

The shoe's soft, engineered mesh upper delivers excellent airflow, keeping your feet cooler throughout your run. Additionally, reflective details provide extra visibility in low-light conditions.

Put a bounce in your step with the new NOVABLAST™ performance running shoe and experience a soft and lightweight ride.



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 is made for Neutral.

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 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from ASICS Novablast - Average running shoe [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very lightweight and comfortable but can feel a little high and unstable. Toe area mesh lets splashes through to the socks. More cushioning across the ball area of the foot would be good for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tim123456 from Asic Dynoblast Great shoe for running, excellent roll off the fore foot and very comfortable. Not great for walking in as not so stable around the heal as it's narrow and high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gary Ba from Good first impression [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Feel really comfortable, bouncy and light around the house. Not had opportunity to use yet due to snow and ice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adam To the Max from ASICS Novablast - mixing style with comfort [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Stylish looking shoe. Super comfortable - my third pair of ASICS and very impressed with heel and ball of the foot bounce and comfort. Ideal for road running - out tomorrow for a trial run. Probably not ideal for country running - sole is quite slick. Nice light shoe too. Now my wife wants a pair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LewisS from Excellent all rounder This is my third pair of novablast and have quickly become my favourite running shoes. Far better than the nimbus which I can confirm are rigid and firm. The novablast are light, very well cushioned, durable, fit well and are breathable. Cannot ask for anymore then to just slip them on and run. However they are a basic shoe with a fancy foam midsole and are quite expensive for what you get. If I have any other gripes about the novablast are the thin laces which cut into my foot and seperate tongue. ASICS really have cheaped out considering the price of these. Like the expensive nimbus they too have a seperate tongue unlike other brands, Nike and Adidas, which have a booty style. ASICS move with the times!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tommygun2035 from Love the cushioning I have a neck injury and walking is the only activity I can do it also helps with the stress that comes along with injuries, the shoe is designed perfect and there is mininimal to none impact running up my body to my neck, prior to buying these shoes I read the other reviews some said it made there knees and other joints worse, when reading reviews remember everyone is different and and people who say they have irritations from these shoes most likely had a problem they didn’t know about, I vouch for them all I can say is your your owne person make your owne mind up, and don’t be afraid of trial and error, ASICS great shoe, I am already getting compliments and as I walk every day for health, Thank you ASICS and all the staff that makes ASICS available to us
