Navigate gnarly routes with these versatile all-terrain shoes. Rain is no match for the shoe’s waterproof barrier, and the sole’s aggressive tread suits gravel, bogs, and uneven ground. Gel cushioning absorbs impact and provides stability.
- Uppers are breathable and waterproof GORE-TEX, reflective hits add visibility.
- Gusseted tongues block debris and a built-in pocket provides laces with a tuck-in space.
- Perforated sockliner optimizes breathability and moisture drainage.
- Rearfoot GEL cushioning system attenuates the initial shock during impact and allows for a smooth transition.
- Midsoles are Solyte, a resilient, lighter-weight material than Asics’ standard midsole compound.
- Gel inserts in heel and forefoot provide shock additional shock absorption.
- Three-quarter length Nylex plates provide torsional support and rock protection.
- DuoMax midsole construction helps correct the degree and velocity of pronation using materials of different densities.
- Clutch counters prevent slippage in the heels.
- Outsoles have trail-specific aggressive lugs and a lightweight supportive Trussic system.

Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
