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

    I have had problem to find a pair of trail running shoes. Since I am using orthodics, I prefer lightweight shoes but most of trail shoes are very heavy (at least 10 OZ)so when I found this Asics gel Fuji racer, I already felt in love with its description, wow...only 7.0 oz/size 8! I even ordered them before they was born on 2/6/2012 with the hope that I could be able to go on the trail and run 22 miles without killing my calf muscles the next day. Fortunately, my dream comes true, the moment I open the box, I am so impressed with the purple color, at least they won't bore me to death like other trail shoes just only black and gray.

    The next day I went on trail and ran 22 miles without breaking them in and I have been run on them 3X of a 22 miles and 2X of a 14 miles. Here are what I experience with this Fuji racer shoes:

    1. very lightweight, very comfortable
    2. feel very strong and very supportive
    3. Very stable on every strike and tend to support more on front feet
    4. Narrow on the arch that hold your feet avoiding over pronation.
    5. Breathable and soft as you still feel the cushion support when landing on trail.
    6. toe box is wider that helps preventing blister.
    7. you will feel it if you step on big rocks (about 2 inches)
    8. after 22 mile run, I recover the next day by wearing these shoes.
    9. I am not sure how long they last but very confident that they last at least 365 miles.
    10. I am 5'3 and 110 lbs so these shoes fit great for me. You just have to go up 1/2 size of your regular size.

    Good luck to all runners who are looking for trail shoes. Get them and get your PB!!! I hope these informations are helpful for you.

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

      I've worn $200+ trainers and everything you can try to run in. Then I bought these. Running shoes are pretty personal because all feet are different, but these are my favorite shoes of all time. Ever. On the planet. Serious, now. They are light & low enough to stay out of my way, but they are cush & tough enough to wear on long runs or trails. Literally the perfect shoe. And the price point is excellent. I am buying a couple pair to sock away, because the new model is out now and these will disappear. I will also try the new model. But truly. These rock. The only caveat I can give is that I have long narrow feet, so I can't speak to width for most people. The fit for me has been spot on, good snug fit through the length of my foot, with enough toebox room for long distance runs.

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

        As a hardcore Mizuno fan, I bought this shoe with much reservation. Over the past few years I've kept going to lighter and lighter shoes, and have also switched from road to primarily trail running. I live in Austin, TX and the trails here are very hilly, rocky, and rough. Earlier this year I used these shoes to train for and complete a 50k trail run. They held up amazingly. They have a rock plate and I never had sore feet, ankles, or anything else really. My only wish is that they had a narrower heel, but that's my heel's fault and not the shoe's fault. Don't tell Mizuno, but I will definitely but these shoes again! I use custom orthotics in mine so I bought a full size up and they were fine.

          I'm on my 2nd pair of Fuji Racers and about to order another pair, so I obviously love em! They're durable, comfortable and handle smooth and rocky trails. The only reason for 4 stars is the drainage system in the tread that lets the moisture out. It also lets the moisture in. I've found I can't wear them on rainy days or muddy terrain. My feet get soaked, muddy and uncomfortable.

            Perfect for running on mixed terrain - particularly a mix between sidewalk/road and unpaved trails (Washington, DC). Lightweight, low heel-to-toe strike, roomy toe box.

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

              This is definitely my all-time favorite trail shoe ever! It's light while being protective - the perfect balance. I feel nimble on trails, with just right flexibility and cushioning, but not so much that it's uncomfortable if I step on a rock or sticks. I like the drainage holes through the bottom - really great during warmer weather. Lots of little deatils that make the difference - rock plate, lace pocket, firmer toe bumper - really make this something special. Sweet colors too!

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

                  Just got these and tried them on. Jogged a bit on the treadmill. Will use these shoes to trail run over loose granite pebbles, large rocks, and roots (Colo Spgs, CO has a plethera of different trail types). My first impression is that they are somewhat narrow, as they fit my very skinny, high arched feet perfectly. The heel cup fits like a glove - I've never had a pair of shoes that fit this well in the heel. You DO have to size up 1/2 size. I usually wear an 8.5 (9 in Reebok Realflex), and I ordered a 9, which fits perfectly. They are stiffer than my Realflex, but it should be good for trail running since my Realflex are not for the weak-ankled on trails! These shoes are somewhat minimalist in that the heel does not sit up as high as a normal shoe. They are fine for those who land mid-foot, but they might not be great for heel strikers. The cushioning is great for semi-minimalists (may be too much for those who like the Vibram 5 Fingers), but probably not cushiony enough for those who are looking for a traditional running shoe or again, those who are heel strikers. These shoes are VERY lightweight. The little bit that I jogged, I had the feeling that my feet had wings!

                  Conclusion:
                  I'm a mid-foot striker who was looking for a somewhat minimalist shoe for trail running. I have narrow feet and high arches. I think I've found myself the perfect shoe!

                  May update this review if I find something bad about them after trail running over the next week or so, but I don't anticipate it.

                      Very impressed with this shoe in the first mile of my run. They are very light weight, yet have great cushioning for rough terrain. These shoes are too cool looking to run through mud with, but I quessi can always buy another pair!
