The blast is back and it’s hotter than ever. The ASICS Novablast 2 is an upgrade over version one, doing all the right things in all the right places. The Flytefoam Blast midsole is bouncy, the upper is comfy, and the ride is more stable than the first edition. Lot of nice tweaks to make this an exciting daily trainer that should work for anyone. I mean, hey, if this thing works for Sara Hall as she’s racking up miles, it’ll probably work for you. Releases June 20 for $130.
