The Montrail Highline is a stable shoe excellent for high mileage on rough terrain or hard pavement. Named after the Zane Grey Highline50, a tough and challenging 50-miler in Arizona, the Highline is breathable for hot weather and protective enough for long distances.The Highline won Runner's World's "Editor's Choice" award in July 2005. "The Highline is the most versatile shoe in this guide," they wrote. The editors cited the Highline's sticky rubber outsole and an upper that is "secure around the heel, supportive through the arch, and roomy in the forefoot."
Specifically engineered to take a pounding on high mileage runs across unyielding pavement and broken terrain, the Montrail Highline trail running shoe features gel padding beneath the forefoot region for absorbing the hard impacts of ultra distance running. Added cushion often equates with added weight, but the Montrail Highline has a highly breathable upper reinforced with supportive synthetic leather and an airmesh lining to compensate for the extra padding beneath your feet. The single-density Elon EVA midsole features resilient inserts along key areas of the forefoot and heel to enhance the stability and support. Montrail uses an exclusive IntegraFit last based on information from over 800,000 pairs of digitally scanned feet, giving you more contoured support along the medial side of your feet to minimize elongation and pronation. These fit refinements with a neutral shoe design result in more comfort and stability over extended distances on uneven terrain, and when sized properly, the Highline trail running shoe can even increase energy transfer in your running stride. The result is the softest ride of any Montrail running shoe--a luxury anyone will appreciate over the long run.
