Thank God the Continental Divides came out.
These shoes are built almost just like those, so compare reviews.
I have low, inflexible arches and these shoes work great with me. They flex at the ball of the foot instead of evenly across the sole. That allows me to support my arch and use my toes to push off. These shoes have taken me over many miles and would keep on going except the have a stench now that has overstayed its welcome. The shoes are laterally rigid as well.
Overall, these are light tanks with a cusion ride.
Materials: basic trail running shoe
Use: running and rough trail w/ heavy pack
Break-in Period: wore them about a week before heavy use
Weight: I weigh about 180 pounds

These shoes are awesome, I am looking for another pair! I have completely worn out my first pair. They went to Bomber Mountain in the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area, WY, Medicine Bow Mountains, WY, and countless other hikes, trails, everywhere.
They are so tough, grinding the bottom over the sharpest points of rocks didn't even scratch them. The grip is amazing as we climbed up near vertical rock ledges with climbing gear (I don't recommend that!). They would get soaking wet and be dry again in a very short time. They have not delaminated, but finally I have worn holes through the top from my toes. They are looking pretty bad, but are still the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own.
If I could, I would buy about 10 pairs to last me the rest of my life! Thanks Montrail!

By far the best trail shoe on the market. The Leona Divide is light but very durable. This shoe has a wide toe box and very good heel/arch support. I have raced and trained in these shoes for the past three years in the varied terrain ranging from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the rocky hills of West Virginia and have yet to experince any foot related problems.

Here's what other sites are saying:
The Leona Divide has a sawtooth pattern outsole which grips all surfaces from snow to mud to rock. Combined with high quality rubber, each tooth of the tread flexes and conforms to the ground surface for maximum traction. The midsole is medially posted for pronation control and wraps the forefoot for added stability. The forefoot is pretty wide, but the volume is low, so it can expand to fit wider feet, but narrow feet won't swim in it.

- Massey's Outfitters refers to the men's version
The Womens Montrail Leona Divide feels like a road runner but it performs like a trail runner. Its exceptional traction, durability and light weight make the Leona Divide a favorite among off-road runners and adventure racers.
- Backcountry Outlet refers to the women's version
The soft and flexible Leona Divide is ideal for light and fast trail running. Montrail's hydrophobic, fast drying and highly breathable uppers absorb very little moisture so your feet wont get water logged. A full-length shield protects against painful stone bruising by rocks and roots. The stable outsole contains alternating cleats made from two different materials; one that provides traction on softer terrain and another material, similar to rock shoe rubber, that grips on wet rocks. Enhancing the stability and comfort of these shoes is Montrails Integrafit system, which stops blister-causing slippage and provides support to resist pronation. No matter how squirrelly the conditions, you're getting ample protection, stability and traction.<BR><BR> <CENTER>We are proud to offer the full line of Montrail products, so if you are unable to find what you are looking for please contact us at<BR><FONT colorred>888-707-6708</FONT> or<BR><FONT colorred>email@example.com</FONT></CENTER>
- RockCreek refers to the women's version
The Leona Divide is now our most popular shoe among ultrarunners and adventure racers. This reputation is attributed to unparalleled traction and good support through the arch and heel while allowing for ample toe room. A veteran of many 100 milers, it has a good balance between cushioning, protection, and stability. It feels solid underfoot, but lively like a good running shoe.The Leona Divide has a sawtooth pattern outsole which grips all surfaces from snow to mud to rock.
