Canadian Running - - TRAIL SHOE GUIDE -

The MQM Flex is a sturdy hy­brid: ex­cel­lent for fast moun­tain ap­proaches or quick day­long hikes, but also suit­able for trail run­ning up and down lots of el­e­va­tion. The 4.5 mm lugs eat up mud and loose dirt with ease. It’s a firmer, stiffer ride, in or­der to give sta­bil­ity in a va­ri­ety of con­di­tions.

The MQM Flex is built like a tank, with wa­ter­proof­ing prop­er­ties to re­pel wa­ter and de­bris from the up­per, as well as a smooth and am­ple rub­ber toe guard to keep your feet safe. Our testers felt a level of con­fi­dence in the MQM Flex as­cend­ing and de­scend­ing scree and steep dry sur­faces, as well as piv­ot­ing on mud and even wet rocks. It’s a solid shoe for tak­ing a heavy, pro­longed beat­ing in the moutains.
