Best for: Triathlons

The seamless upper design of Asics Gel Noosa Tri 11 helps runners get a sock-like fit that is comfortable, even if they are not wearing socks. The perforated Sock Liner, adds more underfoot cushioning that’s breathable, which is a plus. People mostly use it for normal training. The Solyte mid-sole, combined with a bevy of stability mechanics that are meant to balance the stance of the foot when idle and running, rounds out a robust underfoot platform, according to RunRepeat.
