Customer Reviews

Comments: This shoe without question is awesome.  Moved from Ironman distance racing to ultra running. First time running in the shoes felt comfortable and controlled.  I'm mainly used to road racing, but I was very cautious when moving into trail/long distance running, and especially cautious about the shoes I would trust to pull off running that kind of distance in harsh terrain.  I was very concerned about ankle roll.  My first run out, and the terrain I ran in proved there was nothing to worry about.  Though you have to use common sense when trail running, these shoes are excellent, no doubt.
