Recent Trail Shoe Reviews

Under Armour Men's Verge Low Gore-Tex

rated 3 of 5 stars These shoes land solidly in the middle of the pack in the waterproof-breathable trail runner category. I have been using trail runners for almost all of my hiking now for over four years. I find the increased dexterity and reduced fatigue with lighter footwear to be a big endurance and safety benefit on the trail. I have even worn Gore-Tex trail runners to Camp Muir in the snow. I know some prefer the heirloom boot direction, but this is my way and I like it. I also trail run 12-18 miles per week… Full review

Altra Men's Lone Peak 3.0 NeoShell Mid

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Large toe box lets your toes spread out and helps avoid blisters. Zero drop for that minimalist ground feel. Great for wet weather. Mid height for added ankle support. After reading on hiking forums for quite some time how popular zero drop trail runners were for long distance hiking, I was excited when I got a chance to test these shoes. Once the Altra Lone Peak 3.0 mid height boot arrived in the spring, I immediately started putting some miles on them. This is the first Lone Peak in a boot configuration… Full review

Keen Men's Durand Low WP

rated 4 of 5 stars Low hiker meant for the trail whether smooth or rocky, flat or steep. This is more of a warranty issue with the pair that I bought. I've used the Durands on a handful of hikes and trout fishing. They performed admirably. There's generous room in the toe box, which, due to Keen's design, is very helpful in preventing toe bang when descending steep trails. My issue occurred after a couple of months of owning the shoes when stitching started to unravel on the right shoe near the toe. I sent the photo… Full review

Ahnu Ridgecrest

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a really comfortable hiking or backpacking shoe for people who don’t like hiking boots. The Ridgecrest offers increased traction and stability in a waterproof package while still remaining breathable. Ahnu has packed a lot of technology into the design of their new Ridgecrest low-rise hiking shoe. The soles are comprised of Spider Rubber, known for its stickiness and durability. They feature directional lugs for increased traction during forward movement while also helping to eliminate… Full review

Vasque Men's Juxt

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Hard to find, had to buy through REI (~$20 above list price). Wore through the inside heel areas of the right shoe after 4 months of weekend wear. I won't be buying another set. Full review

Adidas Men's Terrex Fast X GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Great traction and good foot protection for trail hiking. Adidas has improved the lacing to avoid heel slip in newer models. I normally wear a 9.5 US and had to size up to a 10 for this shoe. I have flat and narrow feet. The tongue comfort and lacing needed a fair bit of adjustment out of the box to meet a comfort level for hiking. The sole and heel cup provide support for striking uneven surfaces; however, a gnarly enough, uneven surface could twist your ankle as it is a relatively narrow shoe… Full review

Merrell Women's All Out Blaze Aero Sport

rated 3 of 5 stars I wanted to love these hiking shoes, but they just didn't win me over after multiple backcountry hiking trips. They did not hold up in the arch area for comfort on long backpacking trips. Merrell All Out Blaze Aero hiking shoes Good traction on soles Extra rubber protection in the toe box I bought these shoes at REI during a sale. I tried them on and was super impressed with how comfortable they felt. I never would have guessed that these were about to be one of the worst shoes for backpacking. Full review

Adidas Women's Terrex Swift R GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Feet stayed dry! Stomping through puddles and mud and snow, socks dry as a bone! I am wowed by these trail shoes in more ways than one. Adidas shoes in very bright turquoise and yellowFeet dry and surprisingly warm! I actually bought these shoes when I traded in my Merrell All out Blaze hiking shoes after 6 months. It was a day before a 4-night trip out in the Olympics. I needed a shoe, any shoe at that point because my arches were aching so badly from the Merrells. I spotted these and tried a… Full review

Oboz Men's Sawtooth Low

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent shoe. Lighter than most boots, yet sturdier than trail runners. Great underfoot protection, arch support and heel cup. I've never had a blister from these. Excellent shoe. I've had them for over a year, taken them backpacking and up multiple 14ers - heavy loads and long days. Lighter than boots, yet sturdier than trail runners. Great underfoot protection, arch support and heel cup.  I've never had a blister from these. No break in required.  Not the waterproof model, but this helps keep… Full review
