Asics GEL Noosa Tri-6 Collection

words_Nick Engvall

Love them or hate them, you will remember seeing the Asics Gel Noosa Tri-6, no matter category you fall into. The Noosa Tri-6 will make its debut here in the United States when the calendar first turns over to 2011. Judging by the near-blindingly bright colorways that will release, it will probably get plenty of attention. Originally designed for triathlon competitors in Australia, the graphics and details include Australian inspirations, such as kangaroos on bicycles, something we obviously don’t see much of here in the U.S.

The Asics GEL Noosa Tri-6 will be available in both men’s (blue) and women’s (pink) sizes. It features the midsole and outsole combination that is found on the Asics GEL DS Trainer that includes Asics’ proprietary Solyte 55, which comes in at a lighter weight than typical EVA midsoles. A soft lining and minimal interior stitching make the Noosa Tri-6 wearable with or without socks. Ventilation is taken care of by a mesh upper and furthermore through perforations in the aforementioned sock liner. Despite the camouflaged midsole, the bright colors will keep you highly noticeable by day, but even at night you won’t go unnoticed as the Asics logo on the side panel glows in the dark.

Look for these at Eastbay near the first of the new year.

    Ugly ! I really think they look awful. Look like they are designed for a pre-schooler not a runner ! Sorry, just being honest. I am an Asic’s fan………… but certainly not a fan of these !! Good luck selling them.
