Customer Reviews

Comments: This shoe seems to love the tails. However I use it for both road and trail and have not had any problems racing on the road with them. I do have ever have to admit that the toe box is tight and takes a little adjusting and wear to break it in about 120-150 miles. That said when it come to trails on race day I switch shoes to the TNF Hayasa II. That shoe is awesome but the tread does where out fast if you run on the road. I've been wearing TNF running shoe for the past ten years still love the product.

Comments: Good shoe. Soft enough that you can use it on the road on occasion, rugged enough for trails. Fairly lightweight as well. The only negative I found is that it runs a bit narrow in the toe box, and also has the negative that it runs a bit long. This is problematic as sizing up would make it wide enough, but far too long. I can deal with the snug fit, as I will only use these for the occasional grass or trail run and for running in snowy/icy conditions.
