This is by far the best trail running shoe available.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Materials: Mesh Synthetic
Use: Trail running
Break-in Period: none
Weight: very light
Price Paid: $49.95 at Dick's

This is by far the best trail running shoe available. Very light with excellent fit and great traction on any surface. They are not heavy and clunky like the New Balance or the Pearl Izumi. One word of warning however. The innovative lacing system is great, but if one of the Kevlar strands breaks, you basically have to throw the shoes away because there is no easy way to repair.

I've had my pair for a little over two years. I use them for hiking, running, and all around town. I love the fit, very comfortable and light. I'll even take them backpacking to wear around the campsite. I like the lasing system as it is quick and efficient. Although my brother managed to break one of his strings, I find them to last just as long as normal lacings -- in my case, longer.

I bought these shoes at REI with 20% off. After wearing them for almost a year, the string system (that was believed to be Kevlar) broke on one shoe. I attempted to repair it and then the other one went out as well. Bought in 03/2004. It's 2006 and thanks to REI I was able to return them no problem. Turns out the lace system was not kevlar. Good sole and tread, but not good for heavier use.
