Asics Gel-Noosa TRI 11 GS Junior Running Shoes Let your kids run wild in the Gel-Noosa TRI 11 GS, packed with performance features that are sure to keep step with the speediest of young runners. Breathable Mesh Upper Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforates in the fabric increase airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for little feet to thrive in. Glow in the dark print means visibility is increased, keeping little ones safe on low light adventures. The seamless construction means reduced friction because we know how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day. Synthetic overlays surround the foot to increase stability and supply a firm fit, reducing in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free exercise. An EVA sockliner exists as an extra layer of step-in comfort. The reinforced stitched toe cap increases the shoe’s durability and defends the feet against playground scuffs. EVA Midsole EVA resides in the midsole to supply lightweight underfoot cushion and comfort. Sitting beneath this resilient platform is the Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System; it works to reduce shock during the impact phase, sparing juvenile joints as they sprint down onto unforgiving surfaces, and allows for a smooth transition to mid-stance. Solid Rubber Outsole A Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot; it increases the shoe’s torsional rigidity (to keep your child steady on his/her feet) and works alongside the Guidance Line technology to encourage a more consistent, directional gait. A solid rubber outsole completes the GEL-NOOSA TRI 11 GS, supplying sticky multi-directional grip across every surface. Flex grooves adorn this outsole, introduced to promote natural foot flexion for easy, barefoot-like paces.
