Back in September we gave you a look at the Asics GEL Noosa Tri 6 Collection and as was expected, the wild and crazy color schemes were met with a diversity of mixed reviews. For some the loud and attention grabbing, bright camouflage color combination applied to this Triathlon shoe with Australian heritage and inspirations.
Complete with kangaroos riding bicycles and colors that make it impossible to go unnoticed, the Asics GEL Noosa Tri 6 makes the move from Down Under to the States for US triathletes. The key to the Noosa Tri 6 is a soft lining with minimal stitching that ensures throughout the running, biking and swimming, those uncomfortable wear points that all athletes are familiar with are essentially non-existent. On top of that a combination of breathable mesh and the ultra lightweight material, Asics’ proprietary Solyte 55, the Noosa Tri 6 comes in at a feather-like 10.6 ounces.
Performance oriented with colors that scream for attention, the Asics GEL Noosa Tri 6 is available now at Eastbay in both men’s and women’s colorways.
Last month we gave you a look at the upcoming Asics GEL Noosa Tri-6 Collection. One of the most noticeable things about the brightly colored running shoes, aside from the color that is, was the different textures that are used to also add extra wow factor. This week’s Eastbay Photo of the Week gives us a close up look at those textures.
The reviews were mixed with our first look at these Asics, will this photo sway any opinions?
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.
