Details:

The Montrail Badrock is built for the serious trail runner who needs support for over-pronation and room for a higher volume foot. Strategic overlays help keep mud at bay and the tread pattern provides good traction on softer surfaces. A rock shield helps protect the foot and there is ample cushioning for the long run.

INTRODUCTION

The Badrock is a versatile, lightweight, stability trail shoe with plenty of cushion in mind. Montrail uses FluidPost which offers the runner customized support on terrain.
CUSHIONING
  • CMEVA is a full length compression molded EVA midsole engineered for cushioning and increased energy return.
  • Terra-Hex is located in the forefoot and consists of hexagonal shaped cells designed for cushioning and multi-directional flexibility.
MIDSOLE
  • CMEVA is a full length compression molded EVA midsole engineered for cushioning and increased energy return.
  • Medial Posting is utilized at the midfoot and consists of a higher density foam to slow the rate of pronation.
  • Terra-Hex is located in the forefoot and consists of hexagonal shaped cells designed for cushioning and multi-directional flexibility.
UPPER
  • Toe Counter is composed of synthetic overlays and is designed to protect the toes from obstacles on the trail.
  • Traditional Sockliner
  • Traditional Last is a full length strobel last engineered for enhanced underfoot cushioning.
  • Open Mesh is used throughout the upper and allows for lightweight breathability.
OUTSOLE
  • Gryptonite Trail is a sticky outsole rubber designed for optimal traction and durability on both wet and dry surfaces.
  • Trail Shield is co-molded between the outsole and midsole and is a flexible composite material engineered to protect against rock bruises.
  • Deflecting Lugs are located at the center of the forefoot and is designed for cushioning on hard surfaces.
  • Digging Lugs are positioned at the perimeter of the outsole to provide traction for up and downhill runs.

Comments: Quite comfortable cushioning, maximum arch support, sits fairly high off the ground at the heel.  Overly large/roomy toebox and midfoot (would advise this shoe for voluminous feet only, not even medium volume) which lends to a lack of lateral stability.  If you're running groomed or rails-to-trails, ok.  Rocky, rooty, true hiking trails, consider that these may lack an ability to lock your foot in.

Comments: These shoes are light and breathe really well, they'll probably become my main summer running shoes.  The toe box is amazingly deep, probably why they seem to breathe well.  Wish the heel was narrower, just a tad.  Seem to have good protection from rock bruising while still feeling light.  Color is actually a more subdued darker orange.  There is sufficent built in arch that I can't use my hard orthotics, but a softer commercial foam pad insert works fine.

Comments: Have worn these shoes about 10 times since I got them last month and they feel great. I run about 2 miles on paved roads to get to a local trail and they perform great on both paved and unpaved roads and trails. Plenty of traction on rugged and wet terrain; lugs are far enough apart to keep the mud from accumulating. They dry quickly when they get wet and keep debris out of the shoe. The foot bed is ample; they do not support my feet as well as my road shoes (New Balance 1225). I use Superfeet green insoles and the shoes accommodates them well. Was using a New Balance 910 before these but they kept breaking.
