Our favorite shoes for flat, winding dirt. ASICS’s trademark soft foam gives these a comfortable and lively feel that makes you want to tack on a few more miles. But the loose heel and insecure midfoot don’t play nice on steep terrain: these got squirrelly as soon as we left the beaten trail. Best for wide and higher-volume feet. 9.4 oz; 10-mm heel-to-toe drop.
