Asics Gel NoosaFAST Men's Running Shoe

What do you call a shoe that’s a little bit Aussie, a little bit Rasta, and a whole lot speedy? Asics calls it the Gel NoosaFAST. This shoe replaces the Gel Hyper Speed 5, a pretty spectacular racing flat that will be missed. (On a side note, check out our sale on the Hyper Speed 5 if you’re looking to stock up before they’re all gone.)

So what’s the deal with this flashy new model? The NoosaFAST is an entirely new design that drops nearly a half ounce from the Hyper Speed 5 (according to published weights from Asics), and is built with a low 6mm offset. Plus, there’s a Women’s model on tap for all you speedy ladies out there.

What to Watch For

  • Light Weight: According to Asics, the Men’s NoosaFAST checks in at 6.6 oz (size 9), with the Women’s model at 5.3 oz (size 8).
  • Ready to Race: Take these on your next 5K, 10K or beyond, or pop in the included elastic laces and ace your next triathlon outing.
  • Tri-Specific Features: Other triathlon-ready features include grips on the heel and tongue, no-sew construction, and drainage holes in the front of the shoe.
