Description

The outsole is formed with ASICSGRIP™ technology and a technical tread pattern. It’s functional for helping you experience better traction on varying off-road surfaces. Asides from material, another major change to the upper is the toe bumper. The Trabuco 9 utilized an external toe number that was stitched on top of the cloud mesh. In the Trabuco 10, it has been redesigned to be sleeker and more integrated with the main upper through the use of overlays in varying densities, starting with it being dense and structured where the upper meets to midsole before reducing in density and increasing in pliability. These overlays are also used throughout the midfoot on both medial and lateral sides, offering sufficient structure there.

Bryan: The Trabuco 10 is an underrated, underexposed and under-the-radar all purpose trail workhorse. I personally found the toe-box to be the main let down of the shoe for me, although Mike in his review of the Trabuco 9 ( RTR Review ), where there is virtually no difference in terms of volume and fit, but a difference in toe bumper construction, found the toebox to offer a superior all-day experience. The GEL-Trabuco™ 10 GTX trail shoe is designed to keep your feet dry when you’re running or hiking in wet conditions. With GORE-TEX™ panelling on the upper, this shoe helps prevent rain and mud from entering the shoe’s interior.The fit is true to size length and width wise for me in a US9 as with all other Asics shoes. As mentioned the toe box is voluminous both in terms of width and across the top. Some may find this beneficial for longer distance runs / races. The toebox volume remains similar to that of the Trabuco 9, which fellow reviewer Mike found to be a standout feature. A standout feature of the upper is a little pouch situated at the top of the tongue that offers storage for the lace knot. This instills some confidence in preventing dust that may serve to loosen a tied lace, and guarantees no flopping around of laces. The Gel-Trabuco 10 GTX from Asics are tough yet comfortable trail running shoes for all your off-road adventures. Your feet will benefit from ideal protection and a flexible construction. Thanks to the use of GORE-TEX material, your feet will stay dry even in shallow puddles or wet grass. Sophisticated sole construction offers excellent wearing comfort Bryan is a road and trail runner living in Melbourne, Australia. He is a consistent sub 1:25 half marathoner and is presently chasing a sub 3-hour marathon. He is 176cm/ 5'9" tall and weighs about 69kg / 143lbs.

To finish, while I found the ride to be cushioned, it is all relative where there are a multitude of cushier trail options out there by Salomon and Hoka for example. Bryan: Notwithstanding my issue with the upper, the midsole and outsole work in sync to provide a balanced and cushioned ride. The flexibility afforded is appreciated on technical terrain. As mentioned, it does not ride like a 8mm drop shoe. Bryan: In the same class of shoes as the Trabuco as its name suggests, the Cloud Ultra looks more bespoke as On shoes do. However, its shallow lugs and dull and hard ride is a no-compete with the Trabuco 10. Fit wise, I find the Trabuco to be superior as more volume is definitely better than the overly snug fit in the Cloud Ultra for trail runs of all distances.Fit aside, I felt that the materials used are great for durability, but less so for performance. The upper is largely constructed from generic-ish mesh, which is water-absorbent. This seems to be a change to the cloud-mesh material that was used in the Trabuco 9. This is an issue when racing long distances in inclement conditions. Having raced in them in constant rain over a few hours, the added weight to the shoe was immense. Breathability is not an issue too, having tested them in 28 degrees C conditions (82.5 F).
