Customer Reviews

Comments: I wore these shoes for 59km total - a 37km long slow training day and a 22km trail race. The treading has come loose along the edges of the shoe and the mesh is weak. These shoes are not good for steep up and down hills as I don't think they'll stand the test of time.
They might be good for a casual trail runner on dry, soft, flat trails? 
The bonus was that I wore them right out of the box without any hot spots or blisters! The shoes felt good on my feet, just wish they didnt fall apart:(
