Great shoe if you can still find them. Style doesn't fit w/ today's minimists concepts. Provides ultradistant support that minimist shoes don't provide today.
For ultrarunners: If you have very strong feet and ankles, this is NOT the shoe for you. If you need to protect your feet in rocky terrain, this shoe will work for you.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Montrail Wasatch II was designed for trail runners who need more midfoot support for control and edging and a good balance between protection and flexibility. The upper of the Wasatch II wraps the arch of your foot and over the instep, holding the shoe firmly against the sole of your feet and allowing edge control and dexterity on rough trails. Protection from stone bruising and other trail running hazards is provided by a flexible Polyurethane plate in the sole.
