Asics Trail Scout: Decent and affordable

The Trail Scout is one of the few affordable trail shoes that offer decent performance on light terrain. It is not the most aggressive model but the comfort, breathability, traction, and durability are comparable to other trail shoes that are sold on average price.

The shoe is best for:

  • light trail 
  • daily running
  • long, slow-paced runs

Features of the Trail Scout

  • Multi-surface grip - The durable rubber outsole with a decent tread pattern offers reliable traction on both dry and wet surfaces.
  • Lateral support - The midfoot panel gives the foot a supportive platform for better stability.
