Drawing design cues from the flagship triathlon shoe, the GEL-NOOSA TRI 13 GS (Grade School) style channels the same energetic color blocking, along with a technical design. Featuring a mesh upper to increase airflow that helps keep feet cool, this shoe’s vibrant colorway is combined with a series of bold “NOOSA” graphics. Injected with improved comfort in the midsole, thanks to the injection EVA midsole and increased flexibility in the forefoot, this shoe also incorporates a toe stitched rubber outsole compound for improved durability.
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
