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

Love the shoe, it's a fun shoe. The elastic laces didn't work for me, it cut off circulation even when the full length is used and the arch support is too low for my foot so I replaced the insoles and all is well !

          The shoe is okay nothing special though it is a beautiful looking shoe. I use them as a racing flat. It is lightweight but the toe box is narrow. I am medium width and I ordered medium width but the width feels narrow.

              Vastly improved from the original. Much better design and much, much lighter. Just finished an Ironman with the DS Trainers which are extremely light, these feel the same with a bit more cushioning and support.

                I really liked the Tri-7 and had good results in several marathons. But, even though I ordered 1/2 size larger than my normal size, this shoe felt extremely tight in the forefoot area. Disappointed but will try full size larger.

                  This is a fantastic shoe. The upper is super breathable. Combine it with a high-tech fabric sock and you have a very nice pair of shoes that doesn't have any serious hot spots. The sole is super plush. It definitely feels like you're walking/running on clouds. There's plenty of give to absorb impact. The only concern I have with this shoe is the break-in period. Given the upper design, some of the plastic-like pieces require a little time to form into your foot's shape. The first couple of times you run you'll notice a distinct soreness from contact. Otherwise this shoe is fantastic! Well worth the money.

                      Overall I truly like this shoe, very light on my feet, plenty of cushioning and the color selection is quite amusing to me...so I bought one of each. Only things I would prefer they change or modify on this shoe is 1st:they don't sell 1/2 sizes beyond 11.5 and of course I run in a 12.5, so I had to buy a 13 which luckily it still fit pretty good. 2nd: the tongue is sewn onto the inside of one side of the shoe and I'm contemplating separating it just to see if it makes a difference as it currently rubs slightly on the top of my foot. I'll have to test it out and report back.

                          I brought these to do my triathlon training in them. They feel great and are very light and responsive. So much so that I'm considering racing in them when I do 70.3 instead of using flats great shoe if you like light weight trainers or if you want a race shoe with a little more cushion

                          Not the ASICS you would expect. Most ASICS shoes are very standardized win sizing. These shoes are full 1/2 size smaller. Although marketed as stability shoes, I found very little pronation support.

                          • Sizing:
                          • Feels half size too small

                          • Low Arch

                            A terrific shoe. Feels much lighter and more responsive than prior versions. Cushioning is just right-not too firm, but not soft and sloppy feeling.

                            • Feels true to size

                              Rotating in Tri Noosa 8 with two pairs of Tri 7's.
                              The feel is lighter and less shoe, but surprisingly just as durable and minimalist feel. Ultra Breathable. Great shoe for fore foot strike technique. If you are 180 lbs + this shoe would not be good for you.
