I would have gave these shoes a 5.0 except this morning the top shoe lace plastic guide broke off. I have less than 100 miles on this pair. Besides that I think they are the best trail shoe I have ever owned. The support surrounding the foot is excellent. The protection of the material is also excellent. It just sucks that they broke.

Turn the key and go with Oboz Ignition II trail-runners. They are technical running shoes made with trails in mind. Abrasion-resistant polyurethane and synthetic leather uppers feature ample nylon mesh for maximum breathability. Uppers also sport slingshot heels and floating forefoot cages to lock feet in for security while running on rugged terrain. Neoprene and nylon mesh "dynamic" bootie construction keeps trail debris out, wicks moisture and dries quickly. Anatomic EVA footbeds and dual-density EVA midsoles provide cushioning over long trail runs; EVA SupeSkin plates protect against stone bruising and provide additional support. Thermoplastic urethane stability clips at heels deliver stability through your footstrike. Nylon shanks offer torsional stability and protection underfoot, increasing surefootedness on varied terrain and reducing rock bruising. High-friction, nonmarking rubber outsoles grip in all directions on both wet and dry surfaces with ease.
