Breathable Running Shoes

June 20th, 2013

It’s easy to find technical running apparel for the hotter temps of summer, but what about your feet? Running shoes with better breathability help keep your feet cooler and allow your sweat to evaporate more quickly, which can decrease your risk of blisters. Your body also loses a lot of heat through your feet, so wearing more breathable footwear can keep you cooler overall. Here are a few of our favorite breathable shoes for summer.

Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8

If you’re in the mood for some style in your breathable footwear, reach for the Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8. The upper of this shoe is constructed using a no-sew open mesh, which gives a highly breathable feel and sockless comfort.

Mizuno Rider 16

The Mizuno Rider 16 offers a close, performance fit, and the wide open mesh upper enhances ventilation. Actually, Mizuno offers several models with a more open mesh design, including the Wave Precision 13, Wave Ronin 5, and Evo Collection shoes.

Nike Breathe

Let your lungs – and your feet – breathe freely on your next run in the Nike Breathe pack shoes. The Air Pegasus+ 29, Free 5.0+ and LunarGlide+ 4 all got the Breathe treatment, which boast a highly breathable open mesh upper construction to keep your feet happier in hot weather.

Nike Flyknit Racer

The Nike Flyknit Racer is a champ when it comes to footwear breathability. The open knit of the upper allows for excellent ventilation. The seamless construction of the upper easily allows you to go sockless if you choose. This shoe also gives you a responsive ride and a hard-to-beat fit.

Saucony Cortana 2

The Saucony Cortana 2 is a premium shoe for the neutral runner who wants a low offset. The upper of this shoe boasts a generous amount of open mesh for optimum airflow around your foot while you run.

Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8 Sneak Peek

September 24th, 2012

Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8 Men's Running Shoe

A full redesign of the Noosa Tri is on tap for December, but don’t expect big changes from the core “party on your foot” design spec. The Noosa’s psychedelic confetti look remains intact, and the shoe drops some weight for improved responsiveness. Plus, if you were sorely missing the kangaroos from the Tri 6, they make a pretty snazzy comeback in this update (take a close look at the triangle by the midfoot).

What to Watch For

Asics Gel Noosa Tri 8 Women's Running Shoe

  • Reduced Weight: Asics lists weights of 9.7 oz (Men’s size 9) and 8.1 oz (Women’s size 8), down from their published weights of 10.6 oz and 8.5 oz in the current model.
  • New Support System: Dynamic DuoMax, being added to many of Asics’ most popular models, makes its first appearance on the Noosa Tri for a smoother, yet still supportive ride.
  • Reduced Overlays: Fewer stitched-on elements in the upper reduces weight, and the open mesh in the forefoot continues to offer plenty of water drainage.
