Tackle the trails in comfort with the Asics Gel Trabuco 14. This shoe is surprisingly light for its trail shoe status, and has a pillowy soft underfoot feel. Special components in the outsole provide extra grip on wet surfaces, while a water resistant upper keeps feet dry. The durable, flexible outsole is tough enough for trails, yet still light enough for the road, making it a great choice for road to trail transitions.
