Asics GEL-Fuji Trabuco 4 Junior Running Shoes The Asics Gel Fuji Trabuco 4 kids’ trail running shoes are perfect for getting your little athlete out of the urban jungle and into nature. They’re a great match for kids that love to get involved in field sports and the lightweight design lets them outrun their school buddies! Upper Synthetic uppers will encase each foot in durable comfort. Overlays swathe the shoe in lightweight support and increased durability, uniting with an external heel counter to help anchor the foot to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free strides. A stitched down toe cap reinforces the shoe’s trail-worthy state, defending little feet against roots, rocks and general hazards. Midsole A removable EVA sockliner exists as an extra layer of anatomical comfort. In the midsole, the Dynamic DuoMax Support System (a dual density midsole material) works to stabilise the foot during the push-off and landing phase, controlling pronation and preventing injury. A length of SpevaFoam resides underfoot to improve bounce-back characteristics and decrease midsole breakdown; the added cushion produces a soft feel and improved comfort for an even, uninterrupted ride. Embedded within the SpevaFoam platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, is the rearfoot GEL Cushioning System. This clever technology works to reduce shock during the impact phase; sparing juvenile joints as they sprint down onto hard, unforgiving terrain, and allowing for a peaceful transition to mid-stance. Outsole A trail-specific outsole completes the shoe. AHAR makes up the tread, placed in critical areas to cut down on excessive wear. Reversed, aggressive lugs strategically adorn the grippy outsole to improve your little one’s control as they tackle tricky ascents and daring descents. Choose the Gel-Fuji Trabuco 4 for a rugged, reliable trail buddy.
