Asics GT 2000 9 Trail: acclaimed stability shoe for the trails

Part of the popular GT 2000 line form Asics, the 2000 9 Trail offers support for trail runners with flat feet and moderate overpronation.

As an edition of a road shoe, it’s not exactly a rugged cross-over. Think of it as a more hard-wearing 2000 9 with more pronounced lugs.

What is it for?

  • Pace: slow-to-moderate
  • Distance: up to a marathon
  • Terrain: road, moderate trails (not too soft/muddy or technical)
