The GEL-TRABUCO™ 9 G-TX 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. Additionally, the updated version of our trail shoe is complemented with a GORE-TEX™ upper to help keep feet dry in wet conditions. 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 G-TX 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.

GEL-Trabuco 9 G-TXNot a very tight fit but still very comfortable and waterproof. I’ve run 21km in different types of terrain from slippery rocks to muddy forest and my feet where both dry and free of abrasions afterwards. Overall I’m very pleased with this shoe.

Good in natureGood in terrain and when walking in forests, almost like boots. But in rough terrain and mountains a pair of real high boots is better, like Meindl, to prevent injuries.

Dangerously different fit than previous modelMy previous fujitrabuco gtx are my best ever shoes. This year's model is completely different size and fit wise, much more long and narrow. With no such info given I ordered the same size as usual, and the shoes gave me pain in my lower legs from my heel not being in place. I have sent the shoes back and will update my review once I'm sent a different pair

Rugged yet nimble.I am very pleased with my new Gel-Trabuco 9 G-TX. Asics is the shoe that fits my feet and I wanted a stable yet nimble shoe for trail hiking and running. The Gel-Trabuco is even better than my previous Asics shoes in stabilizing and protecting my feet when on rugged and wet trails.
