Buying shoes are often reflected by the choice and preference of an individual. For a generic crowd, many critical factors don’t matter, and they go ahead with the price tag preference. Often, they feel it is a good bargain if the price tag doesn’t harm their wallets. This can prove to be fatal and injurious. In this review, we will shed light on the Asics offering of Gel Noosa Tri 12. First and foremost, you do not need to be a triathlete to use these shoes. You can pull this off on an iron man course distance as well as on a shorter triathlon distance as well. We will divide the review into 3 different elements.

Looks, Usage and Type

So, let us jump quickly into it.


The Gel Noosa Tri 12 has an eye-catchy appearance, which will make it stand out in the crowd. It has bright colours with a knit shoelace. They come in black/flash coral, white/black, safety yellow/hot pink colours. If colours were vocal, the Gel Noosa Tri 12 screams loud.


The Gel Noosa Tri 12 are specifically designed for the triathletes. They facilitate a quick slid on rapidly with a tongue that doesn’t descend the shoe and speedy locking flexible bands. So, when you are in the transition zone during a triathlon, you pretty much just slide it on and take off.  


These shoes fall under the responsive category, where they pack great comfort in a light and fast running shoe. They support mid-heel, midfoot and forefoot. If you do not have pronation you are good to go with a pair of these. They weigh at 250gr and fitted with the Gel technology with a Flyte foam sole.

My Experience so far….

From the day I saw the Gel Noosa Tri 12 I’ve been inclined towards it. Let’s be honest, I am someone who loves to stand out from the crowd and these shoes surely fulfils that aspect of it. It has got insanely breathable upper mesh. Gel Noosa Tri 11 came with stability in comparison to the 12 however, I run with slight pronation, which doesn’t make these shoes completely ideal for my running style. I’ve enjoyed running in these so far. If you are not a fan of the Caterpy laces these do come with normal laces which you can use just in case.

They are light, easy to handle, adjustable, good fit and they are comfortable. So, if you are lazy tie your shoelace every time you step out to run while gaining all the attention, I would definitely recommend the Gel Noosa Tri 12.
