The Asics Novablast 2 is a very good daily trainer. It builds on the good base of the Asics Novablast 1 and fine-tuned it to improve its surprisingly fun, soft, and bouncy configuration (especially in comparison to other traditional Asics running shoes).

The Asics Novablast 2 is a little heavier than the previous model but also more stable. The FF Blast foam delivers a very good, lively ride with a lot of ease and fluidity while the AHARPLUS outsole makes the shoe durable.

It has a medium stack height (30 mm under the heel) and moderate heel-to-toe drop of 8 mm, which is more versatile than the 10 mm of the previous version. Heavier than the Novablast 1, the Asics Novablast 2 remains in the sub-9.9 oz/280 g category, which is reasonable for daily running.

Their grip is good on the road and easy dry dirt trails but proves more tricky on wet surfaces. The soft ride of the shoe feels great, especially at intermediate paces, where this model shows its full potential.

In the opinion of many runners, it's a comfortable and reliable trainer for everyday use as a beginner or experienced runner that also works well for recovery days. However, its narrow platform doesn't make it an ideal choice for runners with overpronation.

The Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 is a moderate stability shoe that uses Enerzy foam and a double fan wave plate for a bouncy and responsive ride.

The highlight (like with most Mizuno models) is its sturdy build with a grippy and firm rubber outsole that can easily last hundreds of miles. Also, besides roads of all conditions, it makes it possible to venture on easy dirt roads.

Like the Rider 25, the Inspire 17 features the latest foam technology of the brand: Enerzy. It acts as a heel wedge to cushion the foot, making for an overall softer ride (compared to previous versions) while remaining on the firm side.

For runners who require a bit more support, the design of the Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 offers a secure ride. It's a great shoe for stability control and provides a snug fit with medial side and lateral side support. Moreover, Mizuno's improved TPU Wave Plate and geometry provide a good balance between bounce and stability.

As with the previous versions, the main criticism of the shoe is its weight. Although Mizuno kept the Inspire below 300 g/10.6 oz, it’s heavier than the Inspire 16, making it clunky for uptempo work.

All in all, the Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 is a very good support shoe that provides a stable and fun ride while delivering on the signature durability of the Japanese brand.

There is no major evolution compared to the previous version; only the upper improved for more durability and a better fit.

This new version remains a bit heavy (still above 300g), although runners note that the weight does not affect the run's responsiveness.

The upper is roomy and ensures comfort for runners with wide feet.

There's a lot of stability in this model with its subtle combination of enhanced PWRRUN+ cushioning (31.5 mm heel stack height), PWRTRAC outsole, and 4 mm low drop.

The grip is one of the shoe's strengths, with aggressive multi-directional lugs that adapt to all types of terrain, even the steepest. A few trail runners have expressed doubts about the effectiveness of the outsole on really muddy terrain, however.

Finally, this shoe features high-quality materials to be durable. It's a very good trail model suitable for ultramarathon running.

Don't have time to read the full review? Here's what you need to know.

After a somewhat disappointing version 13, the Brooks Ghost 14 returns with a configuration that offers a more responsive ride.

The Ghost comes with high-stack cushioning (31 mm under the heel, 19 mm under the forefoot), focusing on comfortable daily runs. It now uses DNA Loft foam (no more BioMoGo DNA, then) on the entire length of the midsole. The underfoot feel remains soft but delivers a slight bounce for a more lively ride.

The upper is softer and thinner with a good amount of stretch. The foot lockdown is relatively ample and unstructured. It will delight runners with wide feet but may not suit those who prefer a snugger fit.

Finally, the outsole is as sturdy as ever, with a thick rubber layer to protect the platform from abrasion. Also, the flexibility remains top-notch thanks to the Omega Flex Grooves and the segmented crash pad. The grip is also flawless.

In summary, the Brooks Ghost 14 is a real improvement over the 13 with a more responsive design that remains versatile and accessible to all. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced runner, the Ghost 14 is a sure choice. Just be careful if you need good stability and a very snug lockdown.
