Asics GEL-NOOSA FF 2 Running Shoes
The NOOSA FF for men is your entry to the fast category. This updated version is still packed with generous GEL cushioning, but the technology is now coupled with a brand new, highly breathable upper that hugs the foot and allows for sockless wear.
Air Mesh Upper
Air mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. The seamless fabrication swathes the foot in sock-like comfort, producing an irritation-free fit (because we know how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day). Minimal melted overlays wrap the rearfoot, cooperating with a traditional lacing system to provide a snug fit and reducing in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy a smooth, distraction-free ride. A moulded EVA sockliner exists for an extra layer of plush, step-in comfort, a treat for your feet on those longer distance days, plus its perforated construction optimises moisture drainage and improves breathability. The gripper tongue and heel allow for quick and easy on-and-off. Reflective details complete the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those late-night adventures.
When it comes to the midsole, Asics play their ace card in lightweight cushioning: FlyteFoam. A generous layer of protection, bounce and comfort, it provides you with unmatched shock absorption and a lively ride. FlyteFoam is the lightest cushioning material ASICS has ever made, 55% lighter than the industry standard, EVA, and it buffers against the ground to protect you from unnecessary stress and fatigue. Its reinforced, organic fibres let the material bounce back to its original shape after every run; so you can train harder, more frequently, for longer, without the worry that your shoes might not be able to take it. Resilient and winning, FlyteFoam technology lets you run with the feeling that your feet aren’t even touching the ground. Sitting beneath this pillowy platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, is the rearfoot GEL Cushioning System. It works to reduce shock during the impact phase; sparing your joints as you sprint down onto unforgiving concrete and allowing for a smooth transition to mid-stance.
Wet Grip Outsole
Impact Guidance System Technology is a technical design, based on the philosophy of the human body, that allows the foot to perform a more natural heel-to-toe movement. This technology is based on 3 priciples: Contact, MidStance and Propulsion. Asics’ design philosophy, boasted by the Noosa FF 2, employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off – gifting you with smooth, stable strides plus a reduced risk of injury. A WET GRIP outsole completes the Noosa FF. When the ground is wet, the water layer between the outer sole and the ground reduces the contact area of the sole and causes slippage. Decreased grip not only degrades performance, but also causes injuries. WET GRIP is made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components, designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces. The Noosa FF 2, giving you absolutely no excuse not to run.
