    Awesome Water-Resistance

    By Angelina

    from Seattle, WA

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Fuji Trainer 2 Trail Running Shoe:

    I love my new ASICS trail shoes! The GEL-Fuji Trainer 2s are extremely lightweight, so I feel quick on my toes on any terrain. The first time I wore these shoes it downpoured (typical). The shoes kept my feet dry and the rain did not effect their performance. I was actually surprised at how good the traction was. I did not slip once. Great purchase!

      nice trail runner. more flexable than other trail runners that i have used in the past. i like these, though i am not crazy about the shoe laces. they are really thin. other than that they are great. if you buy these and have not work black shoes before, then make sure you guy balck socks. they look silly with white

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Fuji Trainer 2 Trail Running Shoe:

      I was looking for a spring/summer/fall trail shoe that provides benefits of a minimalist shoe (lightweight, more natural bio-mechanics, more spring in my step for faster running and better responsiveness, etc etc) but still offers some cushion and foot protection so my feet won't feel quite as battered as they do after a trail run with true barefoot shoes. Overall these turned out to be a no-win for me, even though I really wanted them to work out. I am a muscular runner prone to occasional shin splints, knee pain, other issues, and that is why I thought I would do better with some cushion, but the cushion offered didn't really help prevent my injuries from flaring up. I wouldn't expect arch support from a minimalist shoe, so when my arches were sore I tried to put my insoles in, but this made running in these shoes even worse. A big issue is the security around the ankle isn't enough to prevent my heel from sliding around most the time. It seems the shoes could use an extra row of lace holes. The pros are that the upper material is actually waterproof (nice feature for wet conditions) but not so occlusive that there is no breathability. Also the traction of the soles is pretty good for gripping slippery wet grass and the like, but of course my heel never stays in place during the push-off, and in this respect I feel unstable no matter what the conditions. Probably a fine shoe for some, but not for me.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Fuji Trainer 2 Trail Running Shoe:

      These are great for running on trails. Great traction on loose gravel or rocks and lightweight so that you can really fly! They are perfect for me, although a little more cushion would be nice in the forefoot area, but then again that would probably compromise that light weight...

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Fuji Trainer 2 Trail Running Shoe:

          I was looking for a light weight, performance neutral trail running shoe. In the past I owned the Fuji-Racer and I liked that shoe, it fit and held up well but has too thin of a sole for running on rocky trails, you could feel every rock. I wanted a shoe with a thicker sole to wear on all types of trails so the Fuji-Trainer with only 0.9 grams more weight than the Racer, seemed a good match. I ran in them for the first time and they are comforatable, have a thick enough sole that I did not feel the rocks, good flexiblity in the front of the shoe and light weight.
          I wear a straight size 7 shoe and this is the size I bought. They fit perfectly with plenty of room in the toe box. Althougth it says order up a half size on the website, based on my experience I strongly recommend you do not follow this instruction. I know how frustrating it is when you have to send shoes back because of the size.
