I bought TRAINER2 as replacement to the RACER - RACER was great shoes but the drainage holes on the sole cause serious pain (small rocks or tree branch managed to get stuck...straight to my foot. Ouch!)
I figured they are both "FUJI", they must be the cousins...I was wrong. TRAINER2 is very wide and long (recommend 1/2 size small), and very flimsy. The lace design is very poor, hard to make them tight and lock in my heel.
Only good thing is traction, regardless of sand or mud, they performed well.
If these fit you well, go for it. But don't think these fit like FUJI RACER. Asics really needs to combine the RACER and TRAINER to create another beast...
Great Trail Shoe
The GEL-Fuji Trainer 2 is an awesome trail shoes. It is unbelievably light in comparison to other trail shoes I was owned, and it provides great traction and support. This shoe is comfortable without being bulky. The first im wearing this shoe I went 5 miles and had no discomfort or pain. Great shoe.
Light weight Trainer with Excellent Grip
Loved these shoes out of the box as I took them for a 6, 8 and 22 mile runs on consecutive days after purchase. As a prior reviewer mention I did find the shoe to loosen soon after starting the run, but I fixed the problem by changing out the laces.
I recently completed a 50K(NFEC San Fransisco) where I experienced lots of steep, wet and muddy climbs and descents. The shoes performed excellent. They are a light weight trail shoes with plenty of stability and cushioning for the long haul.
I run fair amount of trail/road. This shoe flows well on the trail with acceptable medial/lateral support. They are durable due to their reinforced outer. My only complaint is that they tend to run hot in the forefoot on hardpack or road surfaces. a thin spenco is helpful, but throws off the fit. I'd prob try something else before re-ordering.
Does not fit like the Fuji Racer!
I really like the Fuji Racer so thought I would try the Fuji Trainer 2. Don't be fooled, this shoe fits and wears nothing like the Fuji Racer. The wide heel leads to an unstable platform and you are not able to lace the shoe tight enough to secure the heel.
