Mountain Masochist

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I torture tested this shoe on the JMT for 150 miles over one 12k rock pile after another. Wear on the soles was noticeable, but they gave excellent slick rock traction. Forded three rivers, same story. They dried quickly and I never got one blister. The blister free factor was, by itself, a huge point. Cuts, abrasions, a partial peeling of the toecap and heel rubber, but everything held together until I could effect repairs. This trail is too much for a running shoe, but these held up as well as… Full review

Torre GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight and breathable because of the Gore-tex materials, but extremely tough. I've taken these boots through every terrain and temperature. I've climbed up to volcanic glaciers, trekked through the rainforest, hiked through the outback and survived monsoons all in pretty easy comfort. They've only just started to show wear in four years after a construction project landed them sole-deep in concrete. I'd say the Torre is a multitasked boot that can save packing space and weight. I use it as… Full review


rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great fitting trail running shoe that inspires confidence on the trail. No rock plate in sole limiting factor on rocky trails. Fit: This is the best fitting shoe I have ever had on, period. I realise this is different for everybody, but here is how it fit me.

I lace down pretty tight in the front, normal in the mid section and a bit… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Still a great shoe. This is still a great trail running shoe. It's not high tech, but pretty durable with good traction. It's true to size and comfortable. It is also pretty stable on the trail with good forefoot plant and up front cushioning.  I think this shoe is being closed out, so you can pick up at good price. Makes for a good daily trainer.

Mountain Masochist

rated 4 of 5 stars Still a great shoe. The Masochist is not a high tech shoe, but does a great job on the trail. It's stable, durable, comfortable and reliable. The forefoot plant seems real stable with no role. The upper and mid sole seem very durable and the shoe reliably preforms. It's well cushioned in the heal and forefoot. The down hill is cruise and sole is real grippe.  Full review
