Rated5out of5byvayafromcomfy trail funI'm new to trail running but really like these shoes. Another reviewer stated that sizing is a little small, but I went ahead and got my normal size, I kind of wish I took his advice, but after a short break-in period they fit nice, though snug. I have logged a few hundred hours in these already and they show no sign of wear and tear. It's my first purchase of this brand, but if this shoe is any indicator,I would trust this company.

Rated3out of5byMontana-er-ite-ianfromProblematic for meAfter one 11 mile trail run up and over a mountain with these, the ball of my foot was extremely tender. I don't know if it's a lack of cushioning around that point or the significant toe to heel rise on this shoe that may be pushing my foot forward onto the ball too much. If you're not prone to this injury, the shoe is otherwise quite nice. It's lightweight, dries easily and seems constructed very well. My last pair of Montrails stayed in great shape even after 2 years of heavy trail use. I should have probably gotten new shoes earlier, but it was hard to convince myself of that when they still looked and felt great.

Rated4out of5byLegatjoefromLight Weight Trainer/RacerI do the majority of my running on the road so I do not log a ton of trail miles. I have run in these shoes only once. Like most Montrails they run small. I wear a size 10.5 in everything except addidas and I ordered size 11 in these and they fit fine - a little roomy. They are realtively lightweight and have some drop. So if you have not jumped on the minimalist bandwagon and want a decent trail shoe that is lightweight and can be used all purpose this shoe may be a good choice.
