Finally, a forecast-be-damned trail shoe that doesn’t make your feet feel like they’re in a sauna. The Trail Sensor’s water-resistant, breathable upper—a synthetic fabric with Nano-Tech treatment—kept our feet warm and dry even on sloppy fall runs in Boulder, while the fully gusseted tongue kept out grit and other debris on a windy-day run near Moab. Overall, it’s a highly cushioned trainer good for dirt roads, but with aggressive lugs and abrasion-resistant sides suitable for more technical terrain. 12 oz; asics.com
Bonus: Excellent out-of-the-box fit and balanced support made for an ultra-smooth ride for most foot types.
Bummer: It’s a little stiff; a few testers wished for slightly more flex.
