Product Description
asics Designed to be as extreme as the athletes who wear it, the ASICS GEL-Noosa Tri 8 Running Shoe drops almost an ounce in weight to push every envelope possible. The perforated sockliner and open mesh upper - secured by new lenticular reinforcements - optimize moisture drainage and breathability. The optional elastic lace and improved heel and tongue grips make the transition smooth from bike to run, while the Propulsion Trusstic makes transition from mid-stance to toe-off quick and efficient. The Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) employs linked components to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. The Guidance Line vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. The Dynamic DuoMax system enhances stability and support while reducing weight and increasing platform comfort. Made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components, the WET GRIP outsole is designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces. Lace-up design. Medium width. Imported.

Love the outrageous colors of this whole series!

Comments about ASICS Mens GEL-Noosa Tri 8 Running Shoe:

I first became aware of the ASICS GEL-Noosa Tri series back in the day of the Tri 6. I've had at least one of the Tri 6, Tri 7, and Tri 8 and loved every one of them. Not only are they colorful, they are extremely comfortable. While I wear mine for walking (too old and too heavy to run, but after all if you can still move you're an athlete) they're undoubtedly well-suited for running. I see a young lady in my apartment complex from time to time who has a pair of black/onyx/confetti Tri 8's and uses them to go running with her dogs. I also have a pair of the same colorway and my BFF calls them my "candy cane shoes." All the GEL-Noosa Tri series are great for people who love to get people asking where they bought their shoes. So far, everyone I've asked has gotten them somewhere on the Internet. The local stores don't have the courage to stock them.

Great Shoe

Comments about ASICS Mens GEL-Noosa Tri 8 Running Shoe:

This is the first pair of Asics shoes I have owned. Initially, I was drawn to the shoe because of the VERY BRIGHT colors. I tried it on, along with the Gel-Nimbus. Both shoes were light weight and comfortable. The Nimbus was slightly more comfortable because the Noosa has , for lack of a better term, straps that go from the sole across the forefoot to the laces. The edge of the strap is right where the toe box breaks in full flex. It did not hurt or feel like it would rub a blister, but it was something I was not used to. The Nimbus has construction along the outer edges of the toe box that constricted my foot a bit. I have a slightly wider-than-normal foot. I decided to go with the Noosa because it was $10 less and the toe box was more flexible to accomodate my foot. Both shoes were comfortable but the brighter colors and the $10 savings swayed me to the Noosa. So far, I am thrilled with my decision.

Comments about ASICS Mens GEL-Noosa Tri 8 Running Shoe:

MONEY TALKS!! I have personally purchased Two (2) Pair of GEL-NOOSA Tri's during 2013: (i) a NOOSA Tri 7 on June 21st (Neon Orange & Turquoise) and (ii) a NOOSA Tri 8 on August 21st (French Blue/Flash Yellow & Punch). At my Age, the A.P.M.A. "SEAL-of-APPROVAL" from an external organization is most Impressive!! The JAPANESE DESIGN and BOLD COLORS always elicit 'Positive Comments' from both Men and Women!! The Open Mesh in the Shoe's Upper is extremely breathable and allows excess Heat to dissipate quickly! If you have the CONFIDENCE to be stopped often, then wear the GEL-NOOSA Tri's in public !?!
