They are okay. I've taken them out 4 times (including a 19 km canyon rim run) on mostly technical trails (rocks, uneven surface, scree, hills) and there were no serious problems.

They don't allow a good feel for the ground, perhaps because the big lugs dampen out fine resolution sensation. They are flexible enough that they don't restrict foot movement. They don't grip the foot into the boot very well - had some slippage and got a blister. They breathe very well.

Not a bad shoe for smaller runs (say, less than 10 km) and as a second shoe for rotations.

Price Paid: US $85

Great fit for my narrow feet. Lightweight with a great feel for the trail. I use it as a trail racing shoe and love it.

Price Paid: $60
