Get two for the price of one: a trail runner and a waterproof light hiker that’s supportive and protective enough for a weekend load in rough, wet, technical terrain. The stiff sole delivers excellent torsional support for a running shoe. “Grip is awesome,” The skinny-cord lacing system—which runs through fabric loops—tightens quickly with a pull of a plastic sliding lock. Like them a lot, no break in period. Overall you will be very pleased with these shoes, and have a moderately priced pair of shoes that are comfortable, reliable and durable.
Wanted a water resistant/proof trail shoe for day hikes. Have walked for hours in a downpour on two separate days and my feet kept dry. Scrambled with a daypack in the Andes and in Arizona over some rocky terrain and muddy slopes. The soles have incredible grip on granite and sandstone, less on clay slopes where you rely more on the tred for traction. In fact, had to watch my step cause the soles would catch rocks if you dragged your feet. Did not use them with a fully loaded multi-day hike...deferred to my full hiking boots because of the weight on your back and the need for very good ankle support. Very happy with these light weight shoes and would recommend them.
Used these for the spartan race which was a very muddy event. Provided decent traction in moderate sludge, however, would cake up and become very heavy in deep muck...maybe a less tight tread pattern would help in major mud, however for normal trails, these are very nice and ventilated. Would recommend as a buy for trail running
