Evaluation Asics is a past master at producing sturdy, no-frills budget trail shoes. Models such as the Gel Guts and Trespass were perfect for runners who did a bit of trail running, but didn't want to spend a fortune. The Trail Attack is even more of an 'in-betweener' shoe. The hard-wearing upper is grafted onto a road shoe midsole, and the outsole lugs are aggressive but not much more than many road models. The Attack is probably the least competent off-roader in Asics's range, but if the trails are dry it works perfectly well. With a medial post and plastic midfoot shank it does offer decent stability.
In short If you're really not commited to off-roading, or run on a real mix of road and dirt trails (with the majority on-road) then the Trail Attack is a fine compromise.
