ASICS trail running shoes are built for the serious runners. The company understands the science behind creating the best running shoe for the runner’s type of foot, running style, terrain and performance level. Before purchasing an ASICS shoe, a person can determine their arch type and foot pronation to determine exactly which shoe will provide maximum support. Then the person can review levels of cushioning the shoe provides for the foot, and then select the shoe for the trail terrain.
ASICS is well aware that female runners have specific shoe requirements. Women’s feet are not simply smaller versions as compared to men’s feet. Women’s feet are narrower, and they tend to land more midfoot with less impact.
For women who prefer to run off of the road, ASICS trail running shoes offer the support and comfort of a shoe made to withstand rough terrain. The shoes are available in different styles to suit the runner, and some come with upper shoe construction that is waterproof, as well as tongue construction designed to keep out the debris on the trail.
• GT-2160 Trail Shoe – this popular shoe is great for runners who often encounter wet or slippery conditions. The enhanced traction design of the shoe, along with the women-specific Space Trussic System in the arch allows for increased flexibility. This added protection of the midsole will maximize the runner’s gait cycle. The shoe is designed to ensure that the foot naturally hits the surface from the strike of the heel to the toe-off. All of this is available in a running shoe that is extremely lightweight.
• Gel-Trail Sensor 5 – when running on terrain that gets very uneven, the low profile and comfortable fit of this shoe will provide the runner with support. The design of the shoe’s heel provides a better fit and support, while the midsole enables the most secure traction on terrain that is uneven. Even the laces of the shoe are structured to reduce irritation and provide a tight, snug fit.
• Gel-Trail Attack 7 – this shoe provides support for any trail runner and weighs only 11.7 ounces. The shoe is designed to protect the foot from stone bruising and the shoe’s tongue design will keep any trail debris from coming into the shoe. It provides traction on uphill and downhill terrain, and though it is very lightweight it is structurally sound.
• Gel-Trail Lahar 3 G-TX – a shoe that will last through mud, creeks, scree and is waterproof with enhanced traction will take the runner anywhere they want to go. AHAR (Lahar) stands for high abrasion rubber which is placed in areas of the outsole for long-lasting durability. This shoe is waterproof in all types of weather and will absorb shock when impacting on rough, uneven terrain.
These examples of ASICS trail running shoes for women highlight the quality, durability and support of shoes designed for difficult and uneven terrains. The shoes support the feet and ankles to maximize traction and prevent injuries, all at an affordable cost of $100 or less.
