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.

Lacks durability

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:

    Great shoe. Perfect for trekking in mixed terrain. I was able to get wide toe block and the Asics Gel provides good support. Took these running shoes out to break them in over there weekend and put 16 miles of trail on them including 2000 ft gain up Mt. Woodson and up Torrey Pines and back down to the beach. Great traction and nothing stuck in the tread. Comfortable and excellent support. Only wish there were other colors available besides black & gray.

            I've used these on a few hikes in CO so far and they've been great. Work just fine for rocky hikes, and are light enough for running. They're very comfortable and work well for daily use as well as hiking and trail running.

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

            I bought these for a trip where I expect to be walking a lot. The shoe seemed good at first, but after a day at the office my feet were hurting. My slippers actually felt more comfortable after taking these off. The shoe seems well constructed, sturdy with a good tread. I also really liked the Asics GEL system and the cool color scheme (black/gray/orange). In the end though, it just wasn't a good fit and left my feet sore.

              Nice looking shoe, but felt too tight in my size 11. I should have ordered 11.5 or 12... Also, I had foot cramps after running because of insufficient arch support. I will probably be ordering a different shoe for running and keep these for wearing with my blue jeans.

                I am not a runner, I just want comfortable and durable sneakers to wear while I do manly things about town. These work just fine for that. My experience with Asics is that they hold up better than other brands and thats important because I am cheap and need a shoe that won't fall apart for at least a couple years
