ASICS announces the launch of the SUPERBLAST 2

ASICS has unveiled the new SUPERBLAST 2 shoe, the latest addition to ASICS’ bouncy and energized performance running shoes.

First introduced in December 2022, the latest release of the popular super SUPERBLAST 2 trainer series is now available with the super responsive and comfortable FF TURBO™ PLUS midsole and a brand new upper making it more breathable and comfortable.​ The stack heights of the supercharged foam deliver an incredible responsive underfoot feeling, making this shoe the ultimate running ‘cheat code’.

The shoe’s main upgrade comes from the use of FF TURBO™ PLUS foam in the midsole, previously used only in ASICS’ flagship models – the METASPEED™ SKY PARIS and METASPEED™ EDGE PARIS, the race day choices for many runners. The FF TURBO™ PLUS foam is approx. 8.0% lighter, 6.0% softer and has 8.2% more energy return than the FF BLAST™ TURBO foam featured in the previous model. The midsole also features a bottom layer of FF BLAST™ PLUS ECO cushioning made from approximately 24% bio-based material which supports with softer landings and energized toe-off. The advanced midsole delivers super responsive cushioning that not only enhances the runner’s performance by conserving energy but also saves the runner’s legs for the next performance.

Pushing the boundaries of technology, the SUPERBLAST™ 2 shoe is equipped with ASICSGRIP™, an advanced outsole rubber, originally designed for off-road terrains that provides better traction and advanced comfort throughout every run. Also, the ENGINEERED WOVEN UPPER, a one-piece, lightweight, and highly breathable woven fabric provides further comfort needed for the runners.

Laura Bolgen, Director of Product Management Department, Performance Running Footwear said: “Born from the evolution of various high-performance running shoes, the SUPERBLAST™ 2 shoe integrates our latest breakthrough, the FF TURBO™ PLUS midsole technology. This material is not only lighter and softer but also provides an exceptional energy return to help runners feel a new level of power and comfort with every step. The SUPERBLAST™ 2 shoe will boost your running efficiency and inspire your mind to reach new heights.”

The SUPERBLAST 2 shoe weigh approx. 249 g (size US9) and will become available for purchase on July 5th, 2024, for 220 EURO. It will be launched as part of the Celebration of Sport collection, a cross-categorial capsule consisting of the most popular ASICS models featuring a distinct colourway designed to spread positivity and brighten the mood of the world.
