The Montrail CTC Mid XCR is a wonderful overall shoe that provides excellent support for steep rough trail and flat pavement. Great traction and ankle support, they fit my feet like a glove with no noticed hot spots or friction. (I am a size ten with a narrow heel and a wide toe box.) Keep up the outstanding work Montrail!
