Overall not very impressed. They don't meet the reqs of either a trail or road shoe. Read my blog for a more scathing review...
Here's what other sites are saying:
This hybrid road and trail shoe is the perfect trainer for runners who seek all kinds of terrain. The Men's GT-2140 Trail comes with the ASICS proprietary Impact Guidance System (I.G.S ) for optimized gait, a rugged performance trail upper, and Solyte midsole material.Space Trusstic System - an advanced system that creates a pocket between the Trusstic System device and the midsole, allowing for greater midsole deformation and more efficient foot function.Impact Guidance System (I.G.S ) ? linked componentry that enhances the foot?s natural gait from strike to toe-off. Solyte midsole material ? lighter than ASICS standard EVA and SpEVA combined with improved cushioning and durability. Performance Trail Upper ? a water-resistant upper that is very breathable.

The ASICS GT-2140 trail-running shoes are packed with comfort, stability and pronation control for off-road runners. Durable yet lightweight and flexible, the synthetic leather/polyester mesh uppers offer maximum breathability and comfort. Wicking polyester linings absorb excess moisture and dry quickly. Solyte® 55 uses medium-density proprietary polymer in the midsole to enhance cushioning and stability. Proprietary Solyte midsole is also exceptionally lightweight, with excellent rebound for easy running on and off the road. Forefoot and hindfoot GEL® silicone-based cushioning inserts absorb excess shock in all directions for better stability. Impact Guidance System (IGS®) helps slow pronation for an optimal gait and natural foot movement from heel strike through toe-off. DuoMax® dual-density medial posts provide pronation control for moderate overpronators. Space Trusstic System® delivers improved stability and arch support while maintaining appropriate flex. Nylon plates add torsional stability and protect against stone bruising. High-performance rubber outsoles enhance traction and feel. DuraSponge® forefoot material provides cushioning and additional traction. AHAR® abrasion-resistant heels enhance durability at the heelstrike area. 3M Scotchlite™ reflective accents increase safety in low light.
