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

    This is my Third (3rd) Pair of Running Shoes in the ASICS TRI-NOOSA series. In my Daily Rotation, I now own a (i) NOOSA TRI-8, a (ii) NOOSA TRI-7, and now another (iii) NOOSA TRI-8.
    Currently, I RUN/WALK/HIKE over Twenty-Eight (28) Miles per Week, every Week (Year-round), Rotating Daily within my ASICS Collection.
    At a Weight of 09.7 ounces per Running Shoe, my NOOSA TRI-8 is Lighter than my NOOSA TRI-7 at 10.6 ounces per Running Shoe, but Heavier than my GEL-LYTE 33-3.0 (LOS ANGELES CITY MARATHON) at 06.8 ounces per Running Shoe!
    With my High Arches, I am always Pleased that I can comfortably RUN in the TRI-NOOSA series without Socks! Both the NOOSA TRI-7 and the NOOSA TRI-8 are Manufactured and Assembled in VIETNAM.
    In general, I find the TRI-NOOSA series to be somewhat SHORT and somewhat NARROW, so I tend to Compensate by Purchasing One-Half Size Larger (e.g., a 11.0 SIZE for my normal 10.5 SIZE Shoe).
    The First (1st) Alteration I make upon Receipt of a TRI-NOOSA series is to Replace the Brilliant MULTI-COLORED Shoe Laces with the Race-Running ELASTIC Laces, which can be nicely Utilized on other Running Shoes to enhance their appearance!
    I always Receive numerous POSITIVE COMMENTS, especially from Women, in regard to the BRIGHT COLORS and Unique Soles.
    As Always, with the JAPANESE ASICS Brand: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and MORE !!!

    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.

                      MONEY TALKS!! I have purchased Two (2) Pair of the GEL-NOOSA Tri's during 2013: (i) on June 21st with a NOOSA-Tri 7 (Neon Orange & Turquoise) and (ii) on August 21st with a GEL-NOOSA Tri 8 (French Blue & Punch). At my Age, the A.P.M.A. "SEAL-of-APPROVAL" from an external organization is Impressive! The Bold Colors and Japanese Design always elicit positive comments from Women!

                        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.

                              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.

                                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.
