ASICS Men’s Gel-Venture 8 Trail Running Shoes


Go the distance in comfort and style with the ASICS Men’s Gel-Venture 8 Trail Running Shoes. Whether you’re tackling rugged trails or hitting the pavement for some city miles, these versatile shoes will keep you going mile after mile.

Shock-Absorbing Cushioning for a Smooth Ride

The star of the show is ASICS’ acclaimed Gel cushioning system in the rearfoot. The silicone-based Gel pads absorb shock and distribute impact evenly across your foot, protecting your joints and keeping you comfortable even on long runs. The Ortholite sockliner provides additional cushioning right where you need it.

Traction for Miles of Off-Road Adventure

Heading off-road? The newly engineered reversed lugs on the outsole bite into loose dirt, gravel, and steep trails to keep you steady and upright. The AHAR rubber compound adds exceptional durability to high-wear areas. A supportive midfoot Trail Specific Outsole Plate gives you structure and protection underfoot when traversing uneven terrain.

Lightweight Breathable Upper

The breathable mesh upper keeps your feet cool and comfortable on every run. Synthetic overlays provide structure and support right where you need it. Reflective accents help keep you visible during early morning or evening runs. The Ortholite sockliner helps manage moisture and odor, so your shoes stay fresher for longer.
