Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $49.00-$54.00

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.

- Sierra Trading Post refers to the women's version

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.
