Heel Drop
5 mm

Designed For Neutral



  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Energy savings are an important component for trail runners traversing across long distances, which is why we applied GUIDESOLE™ technology to the TRABUCO MAX™ trail shoe. This trail running shoe provides improved cushioning and traction while allowing runners to cover more terrain with less effort. GUIDESOLE™ technology is a sole construction that consists of a responsive toe spring that's scientifically proven to save energy over the long run. Thanks to the reduced load placed on the limbs from foot-strike to toe-off, this technology gives trail runners more potential to run further since they'll use less energy to cover the same distance. Traction is a necessary component for running off-road, which is why we have incorporated ASICSGRIP™ technology in the outsole. This rubber compound is functional for providing traction, especially amongst wet and slippery conditions. Incorporated into the ASICSGRIP™ outsole, we applied an uphill and downhill lug pattern for improved agility when navigating varying topography. We also wanted to provide advanced comfort and cushioning for runners that are out on the trail for hours at a time. Adding 28mm of FLYTEFOAM® technology under the heel and 23mm under the forefoot, this shoe provides excellent cushioning. Because of the high stack height, stones and roots will be better absorbed by the midsole. The combination of a smooth forward rolling motion, improved cushioning, and better traction makes the TRABUCO MAX™ shoe a great training partner for a variety of trail running workouts.

TRABUCO MAX is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The start of something truly great! Pros: Fantastic weight/cushion ratio Great width and secure fit for a medium foot Top notch traction in snow, mud, scree, silt, rock Good breathability Fair price point for what you get Guidsole does make a difference for me Cons: Funny tongue shape and too thin for speed laces that hurt the top of my foot. After 100mi a 1.5" section of upper midsole separated from the mesh upper and needed to be reglued (base midsole has not separated) Toe cap crinkles and would be better if it was a traditional solid cap I swapped the speed laces with flat laces and added 1 more set of eyelets to the top of the chain and now the lockdrown is superb and no more bruised top of my feet on long runs. I would suggest either make a thicker tonge like salomons or skip the speed lace system on the next model. These shoes get more use than any other of my 15 trail runner pairs in rotation which says a lot about their confidence and comfort. Thanks asics for making trail running fun!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cord-lock lacking and oversized tongue are issues In my opinion this would be a great trail-running shoe if they used the same lace and tongue system as they have on the Gel Trabuco 10. The Trabuco Max has substantially more cushion than the Gel Trabuco 10. However, I returned the T-Max w/o running in them as I could tell the cord-lock lacing system did not provide sufficient lock down for my trail running. I do recommend the Gel Trabuco 10.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst shoe I have owned since the 80s Worst shoe I have owned since the 80s. The rear heal collapsed inward right out of the box. Additionally, ASICS customer service has been awful. I notified ASICS customer service within the first couple weeks of wearing them. ASICS seems to be all about setting up roadblocks for returns rather than actually providing a solution to its customers. They keep asking for photographs of the shoes at different angles - this has been going on for over three weeks. They don’t stand behind their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking for a second pair in black. I've used these for almost 2 months while walking/running on mixed trails about 5 miles a day, and so far I'm happy. I've had no problems with the lacing system, but perhaps that's because I haven't needed to put any strain on them at all -- these shoes sort of just fit me without them, and tying them is mainly just for getting the laces out of the way. I'm glad I listened to another reviewer who indicated that this model runs a bit smaller than other Asics shoes. I recommend buying a half size up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Shoelaces Shoelace broke after first use. The shoelace tongue combo is complete garbage. I need new shoelaces already.
