    Comments about Mens ASICS Gel-Scout Trail Running Shoe:

    Feels soft and flexible with very good arch support. I didn't feel any pain from rocks but the shoe is still flexible enough to enable my feet to get a good grip on difficult terrain. Considering how flexible it felt, it was still very stable on uneven surfaces. I just purchased these, so I have no comment as to durability. Blue and orange is a great color combination. I use them on singletracks, and very steep, rocky paths- they are great over rocks.

      Comments about Mens ASICS Gel-Scout Trail Running Shoe:

      First use was the day after I received them and ran the Greenland Trail race. Comfortable and no break-in required and I had a fantastic race. On the technical trails I normally run, the shoes have had great traction and they have performed well in all weather (snow, rain, & heat). I typically run 30 miles a week on trails which can be hard on shoes, so I will wait to provide feedback on how well they hold up over time.

                This is my first pair of trail shoes, and I absolutely love them! I also have Asics Gel Cumulus road shoes and the Gel Scouts fit exactly the same. Not too heavy but they provide great traction in all conditions, mud, snow, hard pack, etc. If you don't own a pair of these, you are missing out!

                  Comments about Mens ASICS Gel-Scout Trail Running Shoe:

                  Picked up this shoe on the clearance rack. An online review said they are a little on the heavy side, but they feel no heavier then the Cascadia 8. And while "heavy", they carry the weight very well at least for short runs (only gone about 5 miles twice so far). Run 1 was hard packed trail with lots of elevation, and they felt great. Run 2 was flat with lots of dry stream crossings (rocky) and my feet felt a little sore for that short of distance. Not to be confused with actual pain, just more discomfort then I would think I should feel.

                  In my short trail running experience (in order):
                  1: Salomon Speedcross 3: Absolute favorite shoe, but wears out FAST. Out of my budget for that reason.
                  2: Asics
                  3: Brooks Cascadia 8: Wore on a flat 50k. Good shoe.
                  4: Adidas XT: Bought at RRS, but not on site. They are light, traction feels good, but they are not balanced well.
                  5: XA 3D Ultra: They were mislabeled as neutral, they aren't. I can't run on them.

                      These are my first pair of fitted Trail Running shoes. After a few miles of "breaking them in" I took off on a 4.5 mile trail run from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, down the Bright Angel Trail to Indian Garden. I then took the Old Bright Angel around to the Devil's Corkscrew and back up. These shoes did an excellent job on those trails, but were not meant to handle the OBA. While I would not generally recommend trail shoes for rugged and rocky terrain, these did well on the portion I ran. No hot spots, no blisters, no pain after 11+ Canyon miles!

                      Other have commented on the sizing of this shoe, and I agree. I normally wear a 12.5 in Asics, but that was too big. I returned it, and got the 12, which fits much better. The toe box is pretty loose, which doesn't bother me, but may bother others. Also, I alternate between these shoes, and the GT-2000 Trail Scout, which is also an excellent shoe.

                          I was into the minimalist thing for a while, but my feet were the weak link after around 25 miles of hard trail running. Switched to the Gel Scout, trained around 150 miles in them then ran a very rugged 50k (Speed Goat). No foot issues, good traction, don't notice the extra ounces on a long run. If you're looking for a comfortable trail shoe this is it (works on road too).

                          I'm a heavy trail runner (5'8" and over 200 pounds), and of late I've been running on some very technical trails complete with steep hills, rocks, roots, fallen trees, and water/mud hazards. Overall I like these shoes, however, the uppers are wearing MUCH quicker than my previous GEL-Trail Sensor 4 shoes. As a point of reference, my old "Trail 4s" have nearly 2000 trail miles on them and yet the uppers show only a little more wear than the "GEL-Scouts", even though the newer shoes have less than 400 miles on them.

                          The good news is that, unlike some other reviewers, the soles haven't had any wear or adhesion issues; hoping to get at least 1,000 miles out of them.

                          Specific wear areas:
                          - The outer mesh fabric layer is ripped in several places on both shoes.
                          - The inner heel cups of both shoes are hollowed out to the point where the rear padding is gone.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Delivery was prompt as usual.

                            I bought these after trying to go the minimalist route for about 6 months. My feet were killing me. These were just the ticket. My runs start with about a mile of road then 3-5 miles of dirt fire road and singletrack with multiple steep hills/descents. Shoes are very comfortable and supportive without being too heavy. Well ventilated and after about 100 miles, seem to be holding up. I would buy again. 1 star deducted for loud colors but that's a small price to pay for shoes that work.

                              Purchased these shoes for my high mile runs anything from 10-22 miles and was pleased by their fit and feel on the trail. Unfortunately with about 150 miles on the shoes they are starting to fall apart. The uppers are ripped, the rubber toe guard is coming unglued and the lugs are also coming unglued. I typically run rocky somewhat technical terrain in San Diego, CA. I am a diehard Asics fan and expect much more out of their shoes. I have since returned the shoes and I'm now running in the Mizuno Trail Ascend 7.

                                I needed a trail runner that had a full rock protection plate for rocky trails, and this one fit the bill. The shoe is comfortable and has a good aggressive sole. These shoes only come in gaudy colors with shiny plastic trim, which may be great for kids, but hey Asics, how about giving us more color choices in this shoe? I also still can't figure out why so many shoe makers insist on making pointed shoes that are not in the shape of a human foot, but that's another story. Anyway, I'm sure they will look fine once they get covered with dirt and mud. Regardless, I like the feel and function of these shoes.

                                Training for my first 50K so I was looking for a high mileage trail shoe and the Gel scout seemed a perfect fit. The shoes felt great right out of the box on a 8 mile trail run. I've since put close to 100 miles on them with a 16 miler as my longest. They are very flexible with great trail feel. The lug patter offers outstanding traction on the trail, but it is wearing much faster than I would have expected. I have run almost exclusively on trails with them so the wear was a bit surprising. Overall I am very pleased and would strongly recommend these shoes for those looking outside the minimal shoe realm.
