      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Fuji Racer Trail Running Shoe:

      This shoe is GREAT! I'm a trail runner and was always set on the shoe I ran in. When I read about this Fugi Gel Racer I thought I would give it a try, I'm really loving this shoe. I run a lot of single track, rocky trails out here in the desert and this shoe feels light, fast and has great traction! It's a pretty cool color too!

      ASICS GEL-Fuji Racer: Not so sure

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Fuji Racer Trail Running Shoe:

        Asics rightfully stands as a big-daddy in the world of running shoes. But I have always struggled to get a consistent fit across their line. This GEL-Fuji Racer had a number of features I was interested in plus a good price-point but I find the fit to be about a 1/2 size small. Otherwise the toe box was roomy. My feet tend to want to "slide forward" while running in this shoe (unlike Mizuno or others) which is annoying and adds to the already small feel. Finally, I find that I tend to "slap" even at a modest pace. Even though good cushioning and otherwise comfortable, these cons makes me hesitant to keep them.

          This shoe is awesome, I love the feeling I get when I lace them up and count the seconds until I'm on the trail. I've used many different trail shoes but I purchased this one on a whim and it's been my best purchase in years.

              Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Fuji Racer Trail Running Shoe:

              This is a great shoe. However, the drain holes are a great idea in theory, but don't pan out. Yes, the shoe will help the shoe drain out water and let your feet dry faster. BUT, the same drain holes act like a straw and will draw water upwards getting your feet wet. When your foot strikes even wet grass or leaves from morning dew a suction is created drawing water up. ASICS needs to correct this issue. I contemplated returning these shoes. Otherwise, the shoes are light weight, real comfortable, and great traction. I put up with the annoyance.

                Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Fuji Racer Trail Running Shoe:

                I use these shoes primarily for trail and adventure racing. They are well fitted so agile trail running is not a problem. They are light weight so racing in them is a natural. They also breath well for those hot running days. For adventure races, water is released through the drains in the bottom of the shoe, which takes it away from your foot. Great design.

                I would consider it a *near* minimalist shoe. So if you are use to the large heal on, say a Solomon Speed Cross (which I also run in), then the cushion will feel sparse. There is enough cushion to use these shoes as daily runners.

                I have purchased several pairs because I like the feel and performance so well.

                  This shoe has a very low heel and feels like I'm standing on uphill ground. I can see this shoe would really start causing me to have heel pains all over again. Sticking with my Salomon speedcross 3 for trail racing, much more comfy.

                    First, I tried purchasing a trail shoe in the Newbury Park store. The staff was very helpful and patient. Because nothing in stock fit well they ordered the Fuji for me, delivered to my home, with the understanding I would return them to the store if not satisfied. I'm satisfied!
                    I've been destroying running shoes off road and wanted a fast shoe for very rough terrain. The Fuji is lightweight, slim on support, but has a tough, flexible sole that allows you to feel the terrain but grab the same terrain. Compared to running shoes, the tendency to slide in loose dirt and rock is minimized. These shoes are keepers. Big thanks to the guys and gals at the N.P store!
