Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Trabuco 12 G-TX Trail Running Shoe:

I love this shoe! Excellent for trail running, provides fantastic traction. I've had these shoes for 4 months now and am just looking to replace them. I ended up wearing them instead of my Kayanos to run on a regular basis because I love them so much.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Trabuco 12 G-TX Trail Running Shoe:

My favorite shoe! I hike and run in the wet fields, gravel road and muddy trails. These shoes really stay dry, handle well and feel great. I had last year's model as well and couldn't wait to get my feet into this new pair. Warning: I think the Gortex does put off a strange odor when it ages (8-10 months?), but it's worth the dry feet.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Trabuco 12 G-TX Trail Running Shoe:

This shoe is very stable and quite sturdy. I use it for running and kickboxing classes.
So far the shoe has been quite comfortable. Due to the Gore-Tex, it was quite stiff at first. It took a few days of walking around to get it to loosen up.
The only problem I have had with this shoe- the way the tongue is sewn in creates a point that bites on the inside of my instep. This was fixed by lacing the shoe differently.

If you live in the North East and run outdoors all year long like I do, regardless of weather, these ARE the shoes for you! Best trail running, Gortex shoes I have ever found or worn. Stiff at first, but once broken in, they are superb!

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Trabuco 12 G-TX Trail Running Shoe:

I was so excited to get these shoes because I wanted to wear them to walk in the rain. They got great reviews on other sites, so I was hopeful. I received them today and was very surprised to see what a hot pink color the stripes were and how shiny the silver was. If I had seen them in a store I wouldn't have even tried them on as I prefer something more subdued. However, given the fact that they were Goretex and had anticipated them to be stiff at first, I was willing to give them a try. First of all, I could barely get them on my foot that's how tight they were and I figured, right away, that this meant trouble. Once I finally got them on I was surprised to see that they felt more comfortable than I had first imagined, but after wearing them for about 10 minutes I felt the pinch in the width and on the arch. I even loosened the shoelace to see if that would help and even repositioned the tongue. However, I was not able to make them comfortable at all. They pinched my little toe and f

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Trabuco 12 G-TX Trail Running Shoe:

I just took up trail running, and picked this shoe for my first pair of trail running shoes. They are very stiff even after 10 or so trail runs. But I have to say, nothing will phase those suckers! From rugged terrain to creeks, my feet are in good shoes. They do run 1/2 size too small, and they are a heavy shoe. I would only recommend this shoe if the Gore-Tex is absolutely necessary for your trail runs. Otherwise, there could be something more lightweight with good traction than this shoe, that could be better for you.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Trabuco 12 G-TX Trail Running Shoe:

These are very comfy shoes - well cushioned and hug my feet well. However, the toe box seems to be a little smaller than what I'm used to (Asics Gel Nimbus). I haven't put in any really long runs in them yet but so far I haven't had any problem on shorter runs (less than 10 miles). I usually wear a 10 in the the Nimbus (1/2 size up from other shoes) but these 10's feel a little short so you may want to up size a whole size.
