I bought these shoes because the roads in my area are not very well kept. The shoulder of the county roads are very similar to uneven trails. They fit my purpose very well. They are very sturdy and still give the feel of a road shoe. I would not have a problem suggesting this shoe to anyone looking for a road shoe or well kept trail running. I have not taken them on any tough trails. I have averaged 6-10mi/run in these shoes and have had them for nine months. They are still a comfortable shoe.
Great durable shoe
I've had about 8 pairs of the Wave Ascends. LOVE them. I am female and instead of getting a Womens size 10.5 shoe, I get the mens size 9 because of the wider toe box. 5' 10" 137 lbs, about 30 miles/week mixed terrain. I like them so much, I wear them on the road in the winter. Seriously, have 4 pairs in the garage that I use as back ups. They don't wear out. Also, besides having large feet, I have high arches so I do wear a Powerstep insert.

Decent shoe for the money
Unlike the Wave Ascend 7, the 8 does not provide as much cushioning. Probably not the best shoe for those needing a lot of support. I would compare this shoe being similar to the Brooks Cascadia 7 in terms of how it feels. The shoe is pretty lightweight and breathable. I live in California and I've put about 100 miles over different technical terrains, so far the shoes seem to be holding up well.

All terrain shoe
Took these pair of shoes thru rain, mud, rain & mud, rocky trails - so far so good.
It does lack a little arch support if you hit a flat paved road on the course of your training but overall, it performs as it should be.
These shoes are truly meant to get dirty.
I would get these a half size small
Great shoes I would have to say these along with the xodus 2.0 Saucony are the best trail runners I have ever put my feet in.
