Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Price Paid: about $120 CAD

Summary

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.

Pros

  • Natural fit
  • Lightweight
  • Zero-drop, but with enough cushion

Cons

  • Rubber isn't quite as sticky on slippery bridges
  • Tongue is a little thick

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 and may be a little uncomfortable where it attaches to the shoe (nothing some scissors can't fix!).

Overall great shoe!!

Summary

Awesome shoe, try em, you'll like em.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Grip and traction
  • Fit
  • Comfort

Cons

  • Some finishing detail

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, but the shoe seems to hold up well. I use this shoe for fast tempo trail runs.
