Even though it's the new guy, the Asics Men's GEL Scout Running Shoe utilizes the same trusted GEL cushioning technology and ultralight midsole material that made Asics' road shoes so popular. Trail-specific features like an aggressively lugged sole, gusseted tongue, and rock protection plate make this the perfect shoe for your daily run through the park or long treks deep into the woods. This is the ideal shoe for trail runners with normal to medium-high arches and provides enough support for a wide range of pronation needs.
ASICS GEL-Scout™ trail-running shoes for men provide full ground contact and use full outsole coverage for great protection and ground feel when you're logging lots of miles on rough trails.

I really like running on trails with these but they aren't good for running on flat areas. If you run on flat area's then the tread moves around a little because they are made for off road trail running. I have ran with these on a road and on a treadmill before just to see what they are like, you can do it but you can feel the tread moving a little under your feet.
My feet don't move around in these shoes and they are very lite. I like these a lot.
I have the orange, blue, black shoes and they look really cool.
