With the weather warming up, training for your best 10k or an organised race just got better with Asics' newest collection. Here are two of our favourites...
The NOVABLAST Tokyo shoe is recommended for neutral runners seeking a responsive running experience. This lightweight design includes a FLYTEFOAM Blast midsole foam for an energetic bounce with each stride. This iteration features the SUNRISE RED colourway to celebrate the city of Tokyo and the country of Japan.
The shoe's soft, lightweight mesh upper delivers excellent airflow, which helps keep your feet cooler and fresher throughout your run. The outsole of the shoe has been designed to accentuate the energized feeling of the FLYTEFOAM Blast technology, creating a trampoline effect that propels you forward. The NOVABLAST shoe is higher off the ground than most running styles, helping promote lasting comfort over longer distances.
Women's GEL-KAYANO 27
Enjoy excellent comfort and advanced support with the GEL-KAYANO 27 running shoe. The redesigned mesh upper helps keep feet cool, while the sole is more flexible to help promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle.
At midstance, the foot should stop pronating and re-supinate for an efficient toe-off. This shoe also incorporates DYNAMIC DUOMAX technology to help support the foot and increase stability for runners whose feet roll inward too much (overpronate).
The midsole integrates SPACE TRUSSTIC technology, which provides stability and reduces the overall weight to help promote a smoother transition from footstrike to toe-off. This added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves that create a smoother roll through toe-off, allowing the shoe to move more naturally with the foot.
Lastly, a large section of reflective materials in the rearfoot helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions. The GEL-KAYANO 27 model is an excellent choice for both competitive and non-competitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support.
