If you need a new sneaker to hit the trails in this spring, the Asics Gel Fuji Trainer 2 is a suitable option. The minimum neutral trail shoe is designed for daily training and features a semi-curved shape. Gel cushioning in the heel of the Asics Gel Fuji Trainer 2 provides shock absorption upon impact. Meanwhile, a Solyte midsole provides responsive and durable cushioning. The Asics Gel Fuji Trainer 2 is built with open mesh for a breathable feel, along with a gussetted anti-gravel tongue to prevent debris from entering the sneaker. A lace pocket has been implemented at the top of the tongue which allows the wearer to tuck the laces away so they don't come untied mid-run. The Slip Last construction of the Asics Gel Fuji Trainer 2 features a bootie-like shape attached to the midsole, which not only provides flexibility but decreases weight. Finally, the outsole is rugged and ready for the trails with Asics High Abrasion Rubber in the heel and a trail-specific outsole design. Pick up the Asics Gel Fuji Trainer 2 today for $84.
