ASICS Gt2000 Trail Review

September 20, 2015 at 10:04 PM

trail_shoes_and_christa.jpgThis shoe is a version of the Gt2000 - but with a trail outersole. I'm often running around off-leash dog parks which, in Auckland, are usually volcanic cones. My usual choice of running shoe is the Gt2000, so when I had the opportunity to try the 2000 with the trail outersole, I was quite excited.

All of that chasing after the dog on rocky and sometimes slippery mountains was getting hard on my knees and led to a couple of near-sprains of the ankles.

I popped my orthotics into the shoes and set off up the mountain after a hail storm (!) The shoes were very comfortable and offered the right amount of support that is expected of the 2000, but also a little more flexibility from the trail outer. This meant I had much better grip, as my foot was better able to adapt to the sudden changes in the uneven terrain.trail_shoes.jpg

This update was lighter than my previous Gt2000, which also felt great when I took them for a short run on pavement earlier in the week.

All in all I loved the trail shoe – it is a good alternative to some other, heavier trail-style shoes. I think it would be beneficial to anyone running in the Gt2000 who wants a shoe for cross-training up and down mountains. The colour is nothing short of fabulous, too - black camo and raspberry!
