Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

I had great feedback on this shoe for about 15 runs, totalling almost 200 miles on trails, mixed terrain and snow. Ran a 50K trail run last weekend on some really technical terrain and each shoe lost a lug from the sole. I know the rocks were tough out there, but I feel the shoes should have held up better. Now they will only see grass cutting duties and I won't be replacing them with the same shoe for sure.

  • Sizing:
  • Feels half size too small
  • Width:
  • Feels true to width
  • Arch Type:
  • High Arch

By David (Colorado)

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

I use this shoe in winter on a graded dirt trail. This shoe is a bit snugger than other Asics, which I like. I am a heavy runner (190 lbs) and this shoe has held up very well. It is a rugged shoe with good stability and sufficient cushion. It does not feel "cushiony", but I have had great joint comfort and a shoe without sufficient cushion I can always tell in my knees and hips. I am only a "casual" runner (20 miles per week) and this shoe has performed very well for me. The shoe also is not ventilated which is what I want for winter, including good protection for a inch or two of snow.

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

This is a great shoe. I run trails, roads, dirt paths and this shoe works well in all conditions, including snow and ice. I have narrow feet and I don't get any heel slip. I'd like a little larger toe box. This shoe does not ventalate well so feet get hot.

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

The shoe is too narrow overall. I am concerned if I size up (as specified) that I will not get the additional width and I really do not need the additional length.

I loved this shoe...it was just too narrow in the toebox. I second the need for varying widths. If they came with a wider toebox there would be none better.

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

Please Bring back the Eagle Trail. The Sensors lacing system is sub par and put too much pressure on the top of the foot. I ran through 12 pairs of Eagle trails on multiple Ultra Marathons but can't run in the Sensors.

This is a great shoe. Had a pair of Asics Eagle Trail's which I liked very much. Stability, which is paramount in trail shoes, is that much better in this shoe than in the Eagle Trail.

Not enough lateral room in the toe box. Wish it came in widths. An otherwise excellent shoe - particulary suited for rocky trails.

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

I love Asics, but definitely not these. A Hard motion control shoe that really doesn't work. I feel like they stuck a trail sole on road uppers and called it good. Makes me feel that my feet are angled. Wore them for a few runs and my upper ankle is killing me.

By FJ

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

Just wanted to add my interest in seeing this shoe with a wider toe box. The shoe fit well in every other area, but is too cramped on the big toes. Addidas Supernova trail fits me just fine, but does not offer the additional cushoning, and more solid feel of this shoe. However good fit is essential, so I am sorry that this shoe is just a hair too narraow. The problem is it tapers in and down from top to bottom just a little too much which pushes in on my big toe more than I would like.

Comments about Mens ASICS®GEL-Trail Sensor Trail Running Shoe:

I love this shoe because of the split heel and 4 Gel pods. Very cushioned and durable. Only drawback was the laces didn't stay tight even with a double knot. Upgrade to SureLace will cure that.

This shoe is junk. First set the treds on the heel started detaching near the 40 mile mark on trails and deformation of the jel pads. Second set tread detaching again on the external heel only after 50 miles of trail and deformation in the heal area padding. The lacing system is not comfortable but from the eagle they have more padding in the heel area. When the shoes break down they do it fast. I will now be on my third pair in two months (90 day policy) but Asics needs to clen up their act before I would consider any other shoe from them. This is as crappy as you can get.
