I searched high and low for trail running/walking shoes and came across these. After trying out several different trail sneakers (NB, Nike, Adidas, Merrell)I decided on the Asics. Boy did I make the right choice. These are the best sneakers I've ever owned. They are better than some of the $150 sneakers I owned.

I use these 4 times a week walking, jogging and running forest trails around my home and up north. I live in New Hampshire so the trails are rouged, rocky and tough. These sneakers proved that they can take a beating and still go for more.

I used this shoe to hike two easy mountains, play tennis, racquetball, and other casual sports, workout at the gym, go on long walks with my wife, and walk to almost everywhere else I go. I bought the shoe for comfort and hopeful durability, expecting all pieces of it to last for at least a year like all my other shoes had done. After only a few months, maybe even weeks, (which just happened to be a particularly lazy time period for me) bits of the rubber sole began coming off, the grip on the bottom had worn down significantly, and holes were already forming in the mesh.

Having owned them for about a year now, one shoe's sole has almost completely split open across the width of it. I have NEVER had that happen before! I also have very large holes in the mesh, which isn't a huge problem; it just looks bad.

This is a good shoe for folks expecting to do only very light exercise or none. Other ASICS shoes are great! This model just didn't do it for me.

          Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Venture 4 Trail Running Shoes:

          -These Asics Venture 4's are the best running shoes i've come upon so far. I'm a cross country/ track runner for American River College so I run alot. I put in about 50-60 miles a week right now. I'll put more miles in the summer. The shoes work great. My current pair already has 300 miles on them and the shoes still have lots of cushion and traction on them. I take them on the road, dirt trails, rocky courses, and on the track. Works great for all of them. It also has plenty of traction for when it gets muddy out. Went on a mud run right after a big storm and it felt as if the trail was dry. Had no problems. Another reason to get these shoes is the price. $50 is cheap for shoes that work this great. I already bought two more pairs because I was afraid that the store wouldn't have any more in the future. Definetly recommend these.

                These shoes are the best pair of running shoes I have gotten yet. I'm a cross country runner/track running in college and I'm tried out many running shoes. These have been the best so far. I don't like to spend more than $50 either and these shoes came at a great price. They work great on the trails and they have plenty of cushion for the road. About to get a few more pairs of these. Highly recomend them.

                Bought 2 pairs - would buy more but I need variety in colors. Have Orange and Red, want Blue, Green, Yellow, White, and Black. My true foot size is 9.5EEE but the ASICS GEL Venture 4 size 11 regular width fits PERFECTLY; it's truly a gift to my feet. It holds my orthotic and I am comfortable wearing any sock thickness. When I say I live in the two pairs I own I'm not kidding. The only time I don't wear them is on a formal outing that requires a dress shoe. I hope ASICS never discontiues this line.
