Spotted: Asics Gel Blast 2014

Check out these 2014 models of the Asics Gel Blast. These were posted on the Racquetsklep.pl Facebook page (a store in Poland). Thanks to Michał Porębski for the tip.

I assume these are the Asics Gel Blast 6, although I can’t find any markings on the shoes to confirm that for sure.

    So odd! Didn’t Asics just release the Blast 5 a couple of months ago? They should actually be called the Blast 4.5 since there’s no difference between the 4s and the 5s aside from a handful of new colourways.

    These do look exciting.. a complete revamp from the traditional Blast look rather than an evolution like the Blast 2 through 5. I’d like to know if they perform as well though. I’ve played with Adidas, Hi-Tec, and the Asics Domain but I keep coming back to the Blast. Can count at least 9 pairs in the past 4-5 years, minus the 3 I currently have.

      Hi D – They do look exciting. It may take a while before these are available everywhere. Last year that same shop had pictures of the Gel Blade 4s up maybe 6 months before everyone else started showing them.

    Hi,
    Could someone please explain me what is the exact differences (Technological, Fitting & Feel differences) between ASIC’s Gel Rocket, Gel Beyond, Gel Blast, Gel Progressive, Sensei, Volley.
    Cause with so many indoor squash shoes by Asics it is kinda confusing which is for which purpose. Is there really any difference other than the design & colors of these various shoes.
    Please give details esp. regarding grip or traction on the floor, size charts & the fitting ….& if their is any technological difference among these shoes ?

    Thanks

      Hi Raul, the short answer is — I have no idea! And you are right it is very confusing! I think there are some technological differences between the shoes. Generally speaking, the more expensive ones are a bit more cushioned than the less expensive ones. That being said I have even seen many people comment that they are happy with the cushioning on the lower-priced shoes. So basically what it comes down to is making sure you get a pair you are comfortable with at a price you are comfortable with. Which isn’t very scientific I suppose — it’s more trial and error.
