    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Pearl Izumi EM Trail N2 Trail-Running Shoes - Men's is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Training & Racing Shoe! I run 25-40 miles a week and love the N2 for my trail runs & races. The rockplate is perfect & the shoe seems to flow from wherever I land to the toe with ease. I love this shoe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Ride! I used the Pearl iZumi eMotion N2 Trail shoes at the Speedgoat 50k. The course us rugged, steep, and rocky. The traction was good going up and down and the plate and cushioning protected my feet perfectly. The shoes are lightweight which is nice. I have probably a wider then average forefoot and the toebox felt good for me. One minor drawback is in dusty trail conditions the lightweight fabric on the top of the shoe allows dust and dirt to filter through. Not a huge deal but a trade off for a lighter weight shoe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Running the trails feels great! I've recently switched to these shoes and have about 80miles on them including some trail races. The first thing I noticed is how natural my foot felt as I ran on the trail, very smooth and progressive feel to the midsole regardless of whether I was landing on my heel or mid-foot first. The shoe also felt responsive on uneven ground but there's enough protection from the rock plate to keep the rocks and roots from poking. I would definitely move up a half size especially if you need to use an orthotic, which I do. The seamless lining feels very comfortable when wearing thin socks. The no slip laces are also a very well thought out detail. I get lots of positive comments on the color and styling too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trail Shoe I realy like this shoe. When I run in the hill the rock plate realy protects my foot from the sharp rocks,and it has great traction. I was afraid at first that this light shoe would not have enough cousion form me,but I have not had any problems with blisters or toe nails. I went on a 15 mile trail run with 3500 vertical feet in my first run with this shoe and had no problems. Since then I have put on a lot of miles with this shoe with out any foot problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trail runner and light hiker! One of the most comfortable trail shoes I've worn in the last 5 years; after 2 weeks in these and a pair of M2s, I got rid of my Brooks, Inov8, and Sportivas! I wear these walking around town, days hikes up Mt. Si and on the PCT, and running up to 20 miles on local singletrack, where they offer a great combination of cushioning, traction, and COMFORT! The seamless uppers make all the difference! The N2 felt like it ran a little smaller than the M2 right out of the box, but in a few hours of wear, they seemed to expand in the toe a little to be just as comfortable.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from it's a tank This is a lot of shoe. I've been running in minimalist trail shoes for a few years -- tried these out once on a 10 mile trail run based on positive reviews. It felt like I was running in hiking boots -- they are very stiff, unforgiving and there's not a great deal of ground feel. I could not wait to be done and take them off. This may well be an excellent shoe for some, just beware it is not a minimalist shoe, nor is it flexible. If you're accustomed to something lighter, you may want to skip this.
