In­tended for longer runs over hard-packed trails, you'll en­joy pack­ing in the miles with th­ese. The large toe box is great for run­ners with wide feet or spread toes. The shoe is in­stantly comfy and the widely spaced, rel­a­tively deep, grippy lugs make light work of most trail sur­faces, in­clud­ing wet rock. The shoe is close to the ground for pre­ci­sion, and there isn’t much cush­ion­ing to get in the way of the foot’s nat­u­ral move­ment. This makes them most at home on soft trails in the hills and moun­tains. The only down­side? The laces are a tad on the skinny side, mak­ing them trick­ier to op­er­ate with cold hands; 4mm drop.
