Stewart Haynes reviews the latest offering from a long-running series
Asics have been making great road shoes for decades with the GT-2000 series being one of their best-selling styles. This adaptation for the trail market certainly ticks boxes for those who like plenty of cushioning in their off-road shoes thanks to their proven Gel system. This shoe features PlasmaGuard, which is a water-repellent coating applied to the upper, and it actually does stop rain and mud soaking through to your feet. The outsole is made of a tacky rubber and we felt it was most at home on harder, rocky trail surfaces as well as road surfaces too. The shoe also offers plenty of stability for overpronators and has reflective detailing too.
