Switching to Asics?

Have been wearing my trail shoes to work last few weeks to get used to wearing them again!
Switching to my asics running shoes while a work!
The asics are so comfortable to wear, I am considering switching from the trail shoes to the acics for the Primitivo!
I know they won’t be waterproof, and some stages of the primitivo are a bit rough, but I think they’ll be nicer to wear.
They should dry out quicker than my trail shoes also!

I have worn Asics on two Caminos and been quite happy with their performance. I have appreciated their mid range price, yet they still served me well for over 500+ miles with no blisters and they still looked great. That said, they do have a few models and I chose one that was more robust.

I wore a pair of Asics gel runners on my first Camino (Portuguese) in 2017.
They were great, especially during the stages with lots of road walking!
My only concern is the lightweight fabric may not hold up to constant rain/mud!
I agree the trail running versions would probably be more suitable!

I have walked the Primitivo in May and rain and mud were very minimal; the fabric mesh uppers never wore any holes in them, but don't know why any bad weather should make a difference with that.
