For runners looking to get noticed, there have been few shoes visually louder than the Asics Gel Noosa Tri. This supportive performance trainer is set for an update in early 2014, and the 9th version looks to be just as wild as ever.
Aesthetics aside, don’t expect any huge alterations here – just a minor upper change that should make for a more comfortable running experience.
What to Watch For
- Seamless Upper: For the first time, the Noosa Tri features a seamless upper construction, reducing hotspots and irritations especially when going sockless.
- Carryover Platform: No changes to the midsole or outsole in this update, so expect an underfoot feel identical to that of the Noosa Tri 8.
- Glow in the Dark Print: Glow-in-the-dark is back! Need we say more? Make sure you charge up the luminescent coating before you head out in the dark for maximum effect.
