Shoe Porn: Non-Football Division

Asics Gel-Noosa Tri-8 Negra

Asics Gel-Noosa Tri-8 Negra

I won’t be racing in these tomorrow (I have my Nike Mayfly racers for that), but I am in need of new shoes for day-to-day training and bargain shopper that I am I couldn’t help but to buy these- and to show them to you!  They are last year’s Gel-Noosa Tri 8 (this year’s are the “9”) and while they’re a little heavier- 10-ish ounces rather than 6- and more structured than the Gel-Hyperspeed 6s that I was going to get, they only cost me $41.98 at the Asics outlet instead of $140 so I really couldn’t say “no.”  Plus, at that price I may still be willing to shell out another $70 for the Hyperspeed 6s if the opportunity/sale presents itself.  Oh, they also came with a pair of elasticized “lock laces.”

So I’m pretty happy.

    Can someone who is more artsy than I am explain to me why so many of the athletic shoes now seem to be screaming “look at me” with colors/color combinations?

    Maybe I have approached grumpy old man stage, but really… I am going to run through mud, muck, dirt, and pick up road grease/goo, etc. and within a couple of weeks all of my shoes obtain a well earned grey overcoat.

      1) if they clash with everything, they go with everything.
      2) Blasphemy. You need to take proper care of your shoes.
