END Footwear Stumptown 10 oz
Here's what other sites are saying:
Light, supportive, low-bulk, and environmentally friendly. The End Stumptown 10oz Trail Running Shoe wraps innovative textiles and recycled materials around your foot so you get natural, comfortable flex with no excess weight. What's recycled? The torsionally stable EVA midsole, the carbon rubber grippy outsole, and the webbing and laces. Oh, and the lining uses bamboo for natural wick and odor resistance. The Stumptowns provide medial support as you race down the trail, and roomy forefeet width feels comfortable mile after mile.

The Stumptown 10 Trail Shoe by Environmentally Neutral Design aka END, has taken the term "lightweight" to the next level. A super stable, environmentally friendly, protective trail shoe that is great for long hiking trips or experienced runners going on a trail run. Built with such a lightweight design, the beginner runner or hiker would be better off with a heavier more stable shoe, but if hiking/running is all you do, than these are the shoes for you. Designed with END's Seamsmart construction that delivers a plush under foot, low to the ground protective performance and a simple upper reinforced with webbing for a snug fit. The END EVO Biosmart midsole has a combination of cushioning, support and freedom for the foot with a roomy forefoot width. The Stumptown 10 is constructed with a protection plate for torsional stability and stone-bruise protection. The protection plate is cut from sheet stock ESS and then co-molded with the mid-sole which allows for natural forefoot flex and eliminates the need for glue. The trail travel outsole gives you traction on soft and hard surfaces with a shape that responds naturally to a run or fast walk.
