Asics Men’s FujiTrabuco 9 shoe features rugged comfort and a re-engineered design to assert itself as an all-around trail pioneer. This shoe is tailor-made for the off-road runner seeking excellent durability, protection, and grip. 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. This trail runner is designed to help you run with advanced traction both uphill and downhill, while the responsive midsole foam creates better propulsion throughout your off-road recon.
