What We’re Saying: The Novablast 2 SPS is ASICS’ modern-day, all-rounder running shoe. It’s designed to push runners of all skill levels to their personal bests. Think of it as a nice balance between an overly comfortable recovery shoe and a fast race-day shoe.

The sneaker’s FlyteFoam cushioning is surprisingly durable, considering just how comfortable and soft it is. This specific version is the second iteration of a sneaker that was the subject of various collaborations, including this banger from AFFIX WORKS.

While the Novablast 2 SPS is definitely a performance-focused sneaker, it arrives in a “Smoke Grey” colorway that can absolutely be worn on the street in a lifestyle setting. Basically, what we’re saying is: runners, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better daily trainer than the Novablast 2. And if running isn’t necessarily your thing, that’s cool, too. This ASICS sneaker is more than stylish enough for daily street wear.
