It is a minimalist shoe in the sense that because of its lightness, low drop and minimum height to the ground seeks to provide the maximum feeling of the terrain. Let’s get to know her in detail now, with Mayayo.
ASICS FUJI TRABUCO SKY
THE ASICS trail running shoe family already has four differentiated-use shoes: The well-known Asics Fuji Trabuco 8; Asics Fuji Trabuco Pro, Asics Fuji Trabuco Lyte. The latest novelty is the Asics Fuji Trabuco Sky, which arrives with Xavier Thevenard’s own endorsement in its development. Let’s go with the technical analysis of this great novelty: Elite, for veteran and competitive runners.
Its development has sought an approach focused on lightening weight and optimizing drainage. Its flexible anti-rocks plate under the fore foot allows runners to move quickly over rough rocks and root-filled trails. The upper is reinforced along the base of the shoes to prevent the sediments of the paths from entering inside. In addition, it incorporates elastic laces for comfort and a simple fit on the go.

VETERAN USER, WITH GOOD TECHNICAL SKILLS AND COMPETITIVE.
As you can see in the fact sheet, we are looking at a minimalist shoe, for the head platoon. The latest development in the range. It arrives with a price of 150€, for a weight of 221 grams, a 4mm drop and a ground height of 10mm in front and 14mm at the back.
In this way, it is a minimalist shoe in the sense that because of its lightness, low drop and minimum height to the ground seeks to provide the maximum feeling of the terrain. Thus bet on runners with an optimal and fine running technique. They seek to run as fast and light as possible by nature. They have been developed by Xavier Thevenard, a three-time UTMB winner.
A key element of the design is the placement of small holes in the sole and insole. It could be a double-edged sword. The object is to take advantage of the natural movement of the foot to push the water out of the shoe quickly and effectively and thus move it away from the feet. The front drain we saw in the last Salomon 2020 shoes. Our in-depth tests have proven it’s working.
However, to this day the holes under the foot plant have turned out to be not so effective in previous cases of other brands, facing puddle conditions and wet running entered through them more water than it came out. We will see if with this new development Asics has solved that problem, if so, it will be a great achievement. Now, we hope to start the test thoroughly soon to share sensations with you.
