Most Versatile Trail Runners
High quality design, highly durable, flexible, water-resistant, great traction in snowy and muddy conditions, Quicklace lacing system grips your feet tightly, and solid rubber sole feels sturdy without being too heavy.
Narrow fit and some quality control issues.
Performance: For those who want to run anywhere, anytime, these are the shoes to try. They're built with trail running in mind, but they're versatile enough to use on tracks and treadmills as well. Thanks to their durable rubber outsole, you will be as comfortable on a snowy road as on a muddy trail or a sweaty treadmill.
The shoes are fairly lightweight, but they feel solid and sturdy as you run. They offer decent cushioning and excellent support, with a stable platform that will keep you upright and running no matter how rocky or uneven the terrain.
The shoes aren't without flaws, sadly. Users have reported quality control issues: fragile inner padding, sole defects, etc. They also fit narrow, so men with wider feet will feel uncomfortable.
Features: The upper is made with an Anti-Debris textile that is also water-resistant. It's not fully waterproof, but you can run in rainy and snowy conditions without worrying about getting your feet soaked. The rubber sole is highly durable, with a design that offers great traction in snow, mud, and gravel-laden conditions.
The Quicklace lacing system is the total "plus" of these shoes. They make it easy to slip the shoes on and off, but they pull beautifully tight to keep your feet solidly in place. No slipping and sliding with these bad boys once they're laced up!
Price: Starting at a little over $70 and rising as high as $300, these are definitely on the pricier side of things. However, given their versatility, comfort, and durability, they're a shoe worth having if money is no object.
