Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $100

For trail running they're the best shoes I've ever had. The Kinabulas are lightweight with great motion control. The toebox is large and protects the forefoot from large rocks if you happen to kick them.

HOWEVER, the back of the inside shoes wears through after a very short time. The hard plastic busted through the material and through some thick SmartWool socks during a run, causing a pretty nasty cut on my Achilles.

I'm not sure if I'll buy another pair or not. The exact same thing happened with the exact same shoe with another runner I know. I wrote Montrail, but they have yet to acknowledge my letter. I wish they would fix this design flaw.
