Comments: I got these shoes about 4 months ago now and I love them. It took a little while to get used to the lugs, but now I don't even notice them. I got these to run the Jemez Mountains Trail Run half in Los Alamos, New Mexico. They work great on the loose rock and sandy terrain, and to cross the small creek every once in a while. My feet never got wet from the crossing creeks so far. That being said, my feet sweat like crazy in these shoes! So make sure you have some comfy, breathable sock for these shoes. I would recommend SmartWool. Also, the rock guard on the toes works great and, unlike other trail shoes I have tried in the past, the toe of the shoes does not pull up. I have really disliked the toe of the shoes going up in other trail shoes. It causes me to have shin splints. But not these! These are definitely my go-trail shoes now.
