Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How does the Gel Scram 6 fit?
Athletes who have tried it confirm that it fits without surprise. So you can order your regular size for trail shoes. That said, if this is your first Asics model, a visit to the store is always better.
Is this trail shoe suitable for heavy athletes (85 kg or more)?
Yes, this model should suit whatever your morphology thanks to its medium thickness sole. Only minimalist shoes are to be avoided if you weigh more than 71 kg.
Are these shoes recommended for running an ultra-trail?
This Asics trail shoe is versatile enough to suit different types of training and distances. However, its sole is equipped with thin, shallow lugs, which can therefore be a bit tight for very technical trails. Ultra-trails often display varied terrain which may prove to be a little too ambitious for the Gel Scram 6.
Is this model waterproof?
No, these trail shoes are not waterproof. Indeed, they do not use a waterproof membrane to isolate the foot from the elements. Nevertheless, they are designed to prevent light water infiltration and dry quickly. Your foot should therefore stay dry if you run in light rain. It’s a different story if the rain is more intense, your foot may get wet after a while. However, this configuration has the advantage of ensuring sufficient ventilation of the foot during exercise and of being lighter and more flexible compared to models equipped with a waterproof membrane.
