Asics Gel Trail Sensors- Product Review
All of you ultrarunners and trail runners out there.. DO NOT… I repeat… DO NOT buy the Asics Gel Trail Sensors.
I purchased a pair of Asics Gel Trail Sensors as my most recent trail shoes.
I found them to be comfortable and with great traction off-road. They are unique in that they have a 4-pod heel. They looked great.
However, part of the outer sole fell off on both shoes in the SAME run and in the SAME location on the sole. This was after less than 200 miles of use! There was not even any wear onto the sole and the other parts of the sole are already loose too! I consider this to be a serious design flaw.
I go through innumerable shoes per a year and because I am always trading them out at different times, I keep track of the mileage religiously to know when I need to think of getting new ones. Because I spend a lot of time in my shoes and go through a lot of them every year, I value performance over looks. Who care what your shoes look like when you are alone on the trail anyway?
It is really annoying when a shoe falls apart like that. I shalll not be purchasing an Asics shoe again.
