In the past I was always buying two types of shoes.

In the past I was always buying two types of shoes. One for trail running and one for road running. I am happy to say no more. I have found my do-it-all shoe, excellent ride on the road and plenty of traction on the trails. The on-the-fly adjustment is simple and easy. My first run was six miles on blacktop to my favorite trailhead, did the four-mile loop and six miles back home -- sixteen miles first time out, no hot spots, no blisters, just a great ride. Well worth the money.
