Very good trail running shoe, particularly for the price. Managed to put in some good 15-mile long runs with no problem. Good traction, highly durable.


  • Good traction
  • Highly durable
  • Cheap! (got mine for $50-ish)


  • A little heavy
  • Some break-in period involved, got hot spots until I got past that

Fit: Good, Asics always works well for my wider feet. Heel is a little loose, so I used an ankle lock.

Comfort: OK, break-in period needed. Got some hot spots around my upper foot.

Traction: Very good

Durability: Fantastic, probably have 200-300 miles on these with few signs of wear (of course they are very dusty).
