Customer Reviews

Comments: The fit and feel of this shoe is great. They perform well in DRY conditions. When running on wet/damp rock, they are like running on ice. The tread compound is so hard that it just slips on the damp rocks. I will be trying out the Merrell Trail Gloves as my next shoe, they seem to have a better tread that would work better on rocks.
