a good shoe for the price

pros: light, tight entry keeps out a little more debris, good wearing sole (only used on trails), good stability and grip, narrow fit especially in the heel, tight stable fit, fairly breathable

cons: little detail bits of grip on the sole are coming unstuck, really narrow in the front, materials around the toes are starting to split and crack. very hard to get on because of tight entry to keep out debris

overall: good for the price, only for the narrow footed

The Oboz Women's Ignition Trail Running Shoes provide a snug fit and protect your feet from trail debris as you run. The Ignition's bootie construction (the tongue isn't separate) envelops your feet in breathable mesh yet helps keep out pebbles and dirt. An underfoot TPU plate ensures you don't bruise your foot every time you come down on a rock or root, while a TPU heel clip gives you stability without compromising flexibility. Oboz' dual-density midsoles absorb shock, and rubber outsoles grip rocky or wet ground.

Turn the key and go with Oboz Ignition trail-runners—technical running shoes made with trails in mind. Polyurethane 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 or short sprints through fields. Thermoplastic urethane stability clips at heels deliver stability through your footstrike. Nylon plates 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.
