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.
Our focus for this trim level approach was to make this design look as good in the streets as it does on race day. Tonal hues on the jacquard mesh upper are met with advanced breathability for running and everyday scenarios.
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.
