Summary

The shoe is terrific, but not for my feet.

Pros

  • Excellent, deep treads for trail running
  • Very comfortable
  • Lightweight and highly flexible for toe-strikers

Cons

  • Toggle lacing
  • Difficult sizing for wider feet

I really wanted to love this shoe because it's lightweight, very flexible, and still very gnarly on the sole—perfect for my style of toe-striking on particularly technical trails. But alas, the 39.5s were the right length and too narrow and the 40s were the right width but too long for my size 8 feet.

Still, I would recommend them for trail runners who like lightweight and low-drop shoes, need a little more support than minimalist or no-drop shoes can provide, and don't have flipper feet like mine. They were super comfortable with just the right amount of cushion; I just couldn't get the sizing right.
