rated 4.5 of 5 stars For zero drop fans, this is a fantastic shoe for long, grinding runs or when you need some recovery cush. I've taken this shoe through mud, rocks, roots and it has held up great. I've also taken it out for extended road runs when the legs felt like they needed some added cushioning. An interesting take on a low drop shoe. At first I wasn't sure if I would like such a "maximalist" shoe. I've been a low profile, low drop fan for years. The Olympus pulls together the natural foot design and zero drop… Full review

Lone Peak 1.5

rated 4 of 5 stars These shoes are ridiculously comfortable, especially in the toe-box! They provide the perfect amount of space up front for my extra-wide toes, but are tight in the mid section to hold me in place! Grip is great on trail, less impressive on slippery bridges though. As I said above, very comfortable and a great ride. The zero-drop with cushioning is really nice to run on. The width of the toe-box is what really got me hooked on these... I'll have to go buy 4 more pairs! The tongue is a little thick… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars The Altra Superior is THE door-to-trail running shoe. It combines a great mix of protection and lightweight speed. and with its removable rock-plate, you can customize the fit and ground feel you desire. *Disclosure: I own a running specialty store and Altra is a brand that I sell.

It is the perfect mix of rugged, gritty trail and lightweight speed that come together to form… Full review

Lone Peak 1.5

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome shoe, try em, you'll like em. This has to be one of the best shoes out there. Fit is true to size with plenty of toe room and very comfortable. These shoes are fast and light with good traction. I liked the Zero Drop design; it seems to get you off your heels and makes you a little faster, just like your high school cross country days! And the Zero Drop is not that hard to run in. I like the extra toe room and wider forefoot; it gives more control. There are some rough cuts in the material,… Full review

Lone Peak

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing trail shoes! Excellent for trail and road running. Hold up well in light to intense rain, dry quickly, and are comfortable from the start! Excellent for novices to advance runners! These trail running shoes are amazing! Extra wide toe box provides room for comfort, but doesn't let your foot slip and slide inside. Their comfortable shoes with minimal heel drop, allowing for a natural fit and wear during your runs. I use them on trail, and rarely on road, but suit both terrains well. These… Full review
