I had the Gel-Noosa tri 7. I LOVED the tri 7 but they are now extinct in my size so I ordered the tri 8. Two things I did not like: 1. They were too small/narrow in the toe box. (I have no issues with my feet. I have average arch, no bunions, normal running gait etc. and I have been a 7 1/2 in every pair of running shoes I've owned for years.) 2. There was a plastic "strap" if you will, that went over the top part of the shoe where the first islet for the laces is. It hits right where the foot bends My tri 7s did not have this. I could tell it would cut into my foot with every step. I would have tried a larger size if it were not for this design feature as I know it would have bothered me despite the size. The shoe is super cute. I didn't have time to mess with trying to order a different size as I have a race coming up so I ordered my old stand-by...Gel Kayano.
What a fun shoe!
I love this shoe, I am not a runner,although I am on my feet a lot. I just liked the style and the fun colors so I ordered them. I am glad I didn't go a size up as was recommended, I have never had to do that anyway. Since wearing them, they are so comfy, they go with so many outfits, and I get lots of compliments on them. I am picky about how my shoes fit and these fit perfectly. I have one toe that can give me problems in some shoes, not the case with this shoe. They are just so comfortable, now I want every color! Love the shoelaces too. I have never spent that much money on a pair of shoes, they are worth every penny. I could wear a kids size and save some money but I was a bit hesitant to try that since I was ordering online. Perfect shoe!
Fun, Fast, and Fantastic!
Just got these last week and couldn't be happier! These are very comfortable and feel great on the run. I'm more of a midfoot striker, and the profile couldn't be better - both on my long run and for faster running. Having some cushion in the heel was excellent on downhills, but not so much that it seemed to weigh the shoe down. Can't believe how light it feels without being flimsy. Also, the mesh is really, really breathable - to a point my feet were a chilly on an early morning run for the first mile or so. P.S. I've also gotten tons of compliments by strangers every time I've worn them so far!

Love them, narrow fit
I love these shoes. Aside from looking snazzy, they are comfortable and feel good to run in. I have a high arch, so some of my other Asics have a bit more support in that area. They also don't have as much pronation control as some of my other Asics, they are a little narrower at the base. They also fit narrow - I got the regular width and I like that they fit snugly. They are comfortable to either run with no socks or light ones.
This is my second pair of tri noosa 8. I love them! I wear a 9 in the GT 2000 and I still wear a 9 in the noosa. I find they don't last the usual 400 miles but they are worth it anyway. I ran an average of 55 miles a week. I use them for triathlons and they are perfect. Super breathable. They look fun and I love the swim bike run design on the shoe! Might as well sport your sport!!
try to tri!
Great shoe, but I need less cushion.
I circuit train in a gym most of the time and run a bit as well. I am not an avid runner per-se and feel like I need a little more contact with the road to run well, or learn to run. If you already know how to run and do not mind the impact cushioning in the heal that this shoe offers this is the shoe for you. The weight for the amount of shoe is surprisingly light as well. I am now in the market for something a little more minimal.

I LOVE these shoes!!
They felt perfect from the minute I put them on my feet. They are a full two ounces lighter than my current running shoes. And they are so bright and colorful, they make me want to run just so I can put them on!! It's amazing what a difference the right shoes can make!! I wear a size 10 shoe, typically 10 1/2 running shoe, but in these and other Asics as well I need an 11.
Love My Noosas
Asics finally used the right type of shoelaces with this stylish, eye-catchy shoe! With the Noosa 7's, I had changed out the shoelaces to muti-colored ones, and low and behold, ASICS did it with this updated version. It is more breathable and the color combination, black with the pink, yellow, green and blue, is fantastic. It does run a 1/2 size small.
I bought the Noosa Tri 7 for triathlon season this year. These shoes were an upgrade for next year. They are so cool looking, I get plenty of complements. The only thing I have had an issue with is the mesh on the forefoot. The holes are pretty large, so I am constantly getting dirt and pebbles in my shoes. Otherwise, love the ride!
Didn't last long
I have bought Asics running shoes for years. I tried the Noosa 8 expecting a great shoe. It was, however, only for about 6 weeks!! This shoes wears out way too fast. My feet were killing me. Miserable endurance. I run 50 to 60 miles per week indoors and outdoors, depending on the weather. I was so disappointed with the endurance of this shoe.
Love to Run
AWESOMENESS!!! I LOVE these shoes!!
I bought the black and white, so they go w/just about everything. The cool part is the top of the shoe is somewhat sheer, so you can wear different colored socks to change the color of the shoes....brilliant! Comfortable out of the box and I've gotten tons of compliments on them!
Different Strokes for Different Folks
Bought these in the womens and mens versions because of the design and funky colors. My feet hated them. Ran a half mile, took them off and walked back to the car barefoot for my Saucony's. Gift pair for the girlfriend felt the same way. She ran six mles on a flat dirt path and said her feet were screaming and hot. Never again....
Can't be shy!
Wow! Bright,neon shoe laces and sole,can't be shy in these! Great fit, half size up to run in(my comfort zone) light,breathable,comfortable padding in the right places,slight asymetrical lacing system. Looking forward to some longer runs in comfort!
runs for chocolate
LOVE this shoe!
Great shoe. I get compliments every time I wear them on how cute they are. However, they are not just cute shoes, they are really great runing shoes. Very breathable, not too stiff, big wide toe box so no cramped toes, lightweight, good traction!
Santa Rosa, CA
Best shoes ever!
I wear this shoe daily when I am out and about! They are soooooooooo comfortable, and the fun colors are definitely a conversation starter! :) I also use them on the when working out on different exercise machines! :)
La Mesa, CA.
cute shoe, but not made for flat feet!!!
I have flat feet and these were not good! I did a half marathon and the bottom of my feet were raw because lack of cushion. There is no arch support in these shoes! They are a cute and cool shoe just to wear for show!
This shoe is great.
Definately get a half size up.
I normally take a 7.5 and I ordered an 8. This was definately the right call.
The shoe is true to size because roadrunner reccommends that you order a half size up.
Great workout shoe
I jog 6 days a week, and this is a great summer shoe. Light weight and breathable, but with great support. Very eye catching color & style too. Always get compliments on these shoes.

Love this shoe!
First time Asics buyer. My husband swears by them. I got tired of hearing him say "try just one pair"! So I did, now I'm hooked, don't think I will ever buy another brand of running shoes!!
Great looking, comfortable shoe
In addition to interval training, I just started running. I wanted a shoe that would be comfortable and absorb impact. Also, my teenaged girls think they are the coolest looking sneakers!
My Granddaughter loves these sneakers. Have been buying them for her for 3 yrs. Disappointed that Asics is phasing out the Gel Noosa. My advise is buy them now.
Great running shoes for the track or trails. I walk at least 3 to 4 miles a day and run as well and so far no problem and the colors are great i can match them with anything.
Still not sure..........
Able to feel defects in the surface I'm running on, much more than I'd prefer, and much more than in my Saucony shoes!~ They are really pretty, but not that comfortable to run in!~
Daughter loves them!
Got these shoes so quickly and my daughter loved them immediately! Great fit and she ran in them for 6 miles for her 1st cross country practice without a compliant!
Mimi the mom!
My 3rd noosa tri. Love the fact that it has good cushioning but it's still lightweighted and not very tall. It's very stable and can take long road runs.

I would buy this shoe again and again
These are my go to shoe. This is my 5th pair. I love them for pavement or treadmill. Holes are too big for trail running.
People go crazy over these!
These shoes make you feel so happy! They're so colorful! I ran ten in them the first use. They're perfect!
The shoes are beautiful, but feels narrow and unconfortable. It seems to have no cushioning. I use them only at the gym...
Sao Paulo, Brazil
Love Asics! I'm a huge fan and always have success with this brand. Light weight but good stability.
Great walking shoe and cool looking!!
Walk 30-40 min 6 days a week. Very comfortable and great looking. Many oohs and aahs .
