5.0 out of 5 stars Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, February 16, 2013
This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-Noosa Tri 8 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I didn't need new running shoes; my other plain Jane Asics were hanging in there pretty well and still had some miles left on them. I'm not even a flashy kind of girl. So, I can't tell you exactly WHY I randomly decided to get these shoes, I just know that I'm SO GLAD that I did.

I run moderately on a regular basis. Approximately 20 miles or so per week. I'm not particularly the best runner out there, not by a long shot. I consider myself on the slow end of average and I'm constantly having to pay attention to my form and stride and make corrections. I've tried multiple different running shoes over the past few years - different brands and models in different sizes. But none have instantly made me feel like I'm running differently like these did. And I didn't have that awkward first week of "break in" runs.

I normally wear a 7.5 dress flat and went for an 8 with these and they fir perfectly. However, I find that going up a half size helps limit my blisters. I don't normally go up half a size for a fashion shoe.

Also, I get compliments on them EVERYWHERE I go - from women AND men! Ladies, when's the last time a guy has noticed your shoes unless you were in 6" spike heels? I was worried when I bought them impulsively that maybe they were a little too juvenile or cutesy for my taste, but I love them.

They liven up my running gear, throw a little extra fun into running, and most of all, they're super comfortable and help my step immensely. I shaved 45 seconds off each of my 5 miles on my first run in them! Maybe they just made me feel a little more saucy than usually, but who cares?! I'll take the improvement any way I can get it.
