The NOVABLAST™ Modern Tokyo edition shoe from ASICS is for neutral runners who want an energized running experience. Celebrating the aesthetics and advancement of the Japanese capital, this lightweight running style is equipped with our FLYTEFOAM® Blast midsole foam underfoot for a responsive bounce in 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™ Modern Tokyo performance running shoe and experience a soft and lightweight ride.

Designed For Underpronation Neutral



  • Foot Type

    High arches
  • Push Off

    The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.
  • 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.


  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
    Lightweight, midsole foam with energetic and highly responsive cushioning and bounce for an efficient ride.
  • AHAR® Plus Outsole
    Strategically positioned in critical areas of the outsole, this exceptionally durable compound is 50% more durable than standard ASICS High Abrasion Rubber.
  • Engineered Mesh Upper
    Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.

NOVABLAST is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from switched from the kayano I bought these a year ago just to try because the store was out of the kayano's I wanted, and GT's. I have been pleasantly surprised with this shoe. It had great comfort and cushioning for me as a heavier runner and my legs never feel beatup even after running on concrete. I have totally switched from kayanos to the novablast. I like to have a spare pair in the closet so that I'm never without. Great shoe that with minor enhancements on the topline and collar to be a little more flexible (i have narrow ankles) for support and it would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cushioning, comfort, and bounce I currently have three pairs of novablast runnong shoes...the fourth pair i left at the gym...Rookie move...but i love the shoes! Novablast shoes are comfortable, have a lot of cushioning which i need for my age, and live the variety of colors. It took me some time to get used to Asics Novablast because i only ran with nike vomeros for a long time and did not think i could find another pair with that much cushioning, comfort, and style but Asics gets a 1st place and wreath (Boston) with the Novablast!! I cant wait to purchase novablast 2 but still have to run with the one pair of Novablast still innthe winter running shoes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suprisingly uncomfortable? They had SOME cushioning but feel overly firm and hard. A lightweight shoe but instantly disappointed by the feel. The Noosa 13's i bought a month ago feel much better. Had i tried these on in a store i wouldnt have bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This shoe is beyond it! I have worn the Quantum 360 or 180s for over 6 years now and I tried the Novablast and fell in love with the spring in this shoe as well as the design.
