The NOVABLAST™ 3 running shoe draws inspiration from a geometric origami feature for the upper and midsole.
After making the shoe approx.
30g lighter than the previous version, we also equipped this style with improved comfort.
A tongue wing construction in the upper helps improve the fit while reducing tongue movement.
This component is reinforced with a more supportive heel design to help guide the foot with more control through your gait cycle.
Meanwhile, the midsole’s FF BLAST™ PLUS cushioning helps create a lighter and more responsive feel underfoot.
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 3 is made for Neutral and Underpronation.
