Comments: My favorite Mtn shoe by far! Got them 1 month before TRT100 and the transition was easy,(previously in the pearl izumi n2 which i like but doesn't have enough protection). I have not found a better shoe for difficult, rocky, and loose/slippery trails. I ran all of TRT(22:35) in them and feet came through perfect. You will not be disappointed. I now have almost 500 miles on them and they have half life left. They protect your feet and keep you upright. Roomy toe box, good cushioning for long miles, support when your feet are tired, they use the sticky climbing shoe rubber that grips(RAPTOR!) I have a very average foot shape and size (10.5, 44eur) peak season mileage 90mi/week
