Our focus for the NOVABLAST™ 3 LE running shoe was to make it lighter and more comfortable.
The intention for this trim level approach was to make it look as good in the streets as it does on race day.
Influenced by technical performance, the upper's Nexkin mesh material evolves the design with improved ventilation to help your feet keep cool.
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.
