The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 shoe has been re-engineered from top to bottom to assert itself as an all-around trail pioneer. Rugged and comfortable are the two terms that best describe this trail running shoe. It's for the off-road runner seeking excellent durability, protection, and grip. After reimagining the shoe’s upper, this version weighs in at approximately one ounce (30gm) less than its predecessor. The advanced comfort comes from the FLYTEFOAM™ midsole material that's coupled with GEL™ technology cushioning in the heel. Equipped with a DUOMAX™ support system that creates a more stable ride, this placement of foam on the medial side of the midsole offers a firmer density that keeps the foot from rotating inward too much (overpronation). The lugged outsole pattern features ASICSGRIP™ rubber while incorporating an uphill and downhill lug pattern on the lateral and medial side of the shoe to improve traction on slippery terrain. Additionally a rock protection plate helps the outsole stay flexible and shield the foot from abrupt terrain or trail debris. The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 shoe is designed to help you fly through the trails with advanced traction both uphill and downhill, while the responsive midsole foam creates better propulsion throughout your off-road recon.
Low arches or flat feet
Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
How your foot contacts the ground
The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.

Very comfortable and good for hikingThis is my first Asics shoes and I am very happy with my experience wearing it so far. It provides the much needed cushion and support for my feet when I run as I have low arch. I also took this for a spring hike and I was satisfied with its grip especially on muddy and snowy/slushy trails. It's not totally waterproof but the water did not stay in the shoes and felt like it went right through them. My feet did not get soaked or squishy! I highly recommend!
