Asics GEL-Scout -

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.

Support and Cushioning:

  • GEL cushioning system in the rearfoot and forefoot absorbs shock when your foot hits the ground so you get the smoothest transition from heel to toe
  • Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems: Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
  • Heel Clutching System is an external heel counter that provides additional heel support through rough, uneven terrain


  • Outsole is reinforced with high abrasion rubber in critical areas


  • ASICS GEL-Scout™ trail-running shoes have small pockets on the tongues that give you a place to tuck the laces so they won't snag on sticks
  • Lace pocket keeps the ends of your laces where you can't trip over them while running


  • EVA polymer midsoles with gel inserts in the heels and forefeet damp shock on impact and encourage a smooth stride
  • Solyte midsole material is ultralight and extra durable
  • Midsole is made of dual-density foam that provides support and stabilizes your footstrike on uneven terrain


  • Tongue uses a gusseted construction that prevents rocks and debris from filling your shoe

Lining and Layers:

  • Synthetic leather/nylon mesh uppers feature a supportive cage structure around soft mesh linings for great comfort and durability


  • Mesh upper is well ventilated, highly durable, and features a reinforced toe bumper

Traction and Grip:

  • Wet Grip Outsole is made of a blend of organic and synthetic materials that offer increased traction on wet, slippery, and loose surfaces
  • Aggressive lugs ensure excellent traction on rough trails


  • Rock protection plates keep sharp rocks and sticks from hurting the soles of your feet

Asics GEL-Scout Reviews:


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.

I bought these shoes 2 days before a ToughMudder Competition. 12 miles later and mud up to my waist sometimes and they are like new after a wash. These shoes saved me from falling even once in wet clay and mud! These are the best trail shoes you will ever buy...PERIOD! I can say that because I put these shoes to the ultimate test and they performed when I needed it most!
Marc T - customer at on 04/16/2013
I really like these shoes. They feel great, comfortable right from the start with no break in time. They fit like a glove. I had to buy these a 1/2 size bigger than normal, 12.5 (I usually wear 11.5 - 12). I have the Kayano 19 (size 12) and they have more room in the toes compared to the Scouts. Good grip on the trail and grass.

Super nice kicks

Sure it's a bit pricey, but they ate super comfy and snug on my feet. Great cushion when you are off piste..trail running, jumping from bank to bank, rock to rock with excellent traction! Love the vibrant colors, too! I really have no complaints...oh and it is pretty light!

This shoe is awesome. The comfort level is unlike any other running/walking shoe I have worn. The look is off the charts cool, and the endorsement from the APMA seals the deal. Buy this shoe, wear it, and love it.

Big fan of these shoes. Versatile. Comfortable. All around great shoe. Great for running. Great for training in the gym. I'd say I'm happy with the purchase.
Mike D - customer at on 02/11/2013
I literally just put them on...excellent heel support. More than expected mid-foot cushioning. Bitchin style. I already want to buy a second pair.
