Fantastic shoe at this price point. After first trying them I bought six pairs, and have already worn out two pair. Most of my running mixes trails, asphalt, and concrete. The Karasi is comfortable with all three surfaces, although I wouldn't recommend it for straight concrete or asphalt.
I think the reason this shoe is not more popular is the colors, they are just a little "off". Of the six pair I bought there are three different color schemes, none of which I find attractive. But if you want a really functional shoe or running or knocking around you can't beat them at the price.

Wear the Columbia Women's Karasi Trail Shoes for your after-work hikes or trail runs. The Karasi shoes breathe so your feet don't overheat in hot weather or when you exert. A contoured footbed, molded EVA midsole, and nylon shank cushion your foot, provide support, and protect your sole from rocks. A toecap prevents stubbed piggies and grippy outsole gives you traction on uneven terrain.
