Aggressive 4mm central lugs bite into loose dirt and mud. Perimeter lugs with greater surface area for gripping smooth surfaces. All lugs beveled to help prevent accumulation of mud, snow, dog poo.
All Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component, from the thread to the laces are critically evaluated and chosen for its ability to hold up after constant soaking, shed water, and not accumulate funk. Many models have engineered drainage for water to come out while minimizing entry of silt.
We believe that a foot’s position in a shoe should be similar to when barefoot. This allows excellent balance and biomechanically natural lifestyle.
Foot-beds are essentially level (only 1mm drop from heel to toe ) and provide medium arch support. Tapered instep and heel area for better foothold and control Wide forefoot allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.
This G compound is formulated for premium grip while also providing "excellent" abrasion resistance. It's low durometer means the rubber is softer and therefore conforms well to the ground.

These are my third pair of Astral shoes, and they just keep getting better. The ventilation on these Trek M's is fantastic, and I say this as a "hot foot" person, living in the desert SW. The grip is of course fantastic, and the fit is typical of Astral shoes; ultra low drop, great heel support and a nice wide toe box. The Trek are a fantastic addition to the Astral line, and I hope to see more colors in the future. The Basalt Black ones that I have are a great all around color, and the accent color goes very well with a variety of other clothing colors. If you normally wear athletic shoes with outfits, these will look great. I am sold not only on the Trek M's, but the Astral Brand as well. I would consider my foot wider than a regular foot, and these seem to fit well without any of the "tippy" feeling I get from regular brands like Asics or Reebok in their regular width (not downing those brands, just what I have experienced with them personally). It would be hard to beat a pair of the Trek M's as a first pair of Astral shoes, they have a normal look, but extraordinary function and construction.
I would recommend this product
