ASICS and AFFIX have a storied history of collaboration, with the experimental menswear collective often opting to enhance rather than reinvent. The latest drop is no different. There’s two Novablast, this time; both with a relatively neutral colourway and both with the same construction as the mainline pairs from the Japanese label. That’s not a bad thing, though. The lightweight mesh uppers, in a coastal blue with burgundy overlays, are teamed with a FLYTEFOAM Blast™ midsole that cushions, propels and supports every step.
