My Montrails have taken me through the Florida Everglades in knee-high water and 8-inch muck (slurp, suck, slurp, suck) ... 285 miles on the John Muir Trail through rivers and streams (while everyone else had to stop and take off their shoes, I trekked on never worrying a bit that my shoes were getting soaked) ... crossed eleven mountain passes in 200% snow pack including boulder-scrambling ... and these shoes ARE THE BEST. Great fit, breathable, drainable (is that even a word?), quick-dry and superior grip. I can't imagine wearing anything else. Ever.
These are not only comfortable, functional and awesome, they are also the sweetest looking trail shoes i've ever seen. I'm never taking them off and you can't make me. Buy your own pair, you'll see what i mean!
I love how my foot feels so supported in these shoes! I don't feel like I have any instability, and they are really comfortable and lightweight. They are great for hiking and trail running, even on gravel where you could slip. I've worn them for both activities, and also just for generally walking around, and I could not be happier. Plus, they are really stylish and don't look like clunky hiking boots.
The perfect shoe that can be used as a light hiker, a trail running shoe or just an everyday shoe to walk around in. The shoe is comfortable and hold snug to the foot. Not too stiff and not too soft. Cool enough looking so you can wear everyday without looking like you are wearing running shoes or hiking shoes. I have had a foot problem after injuring it in the Tough Mudder Obstacle Event (guess at my age one should not be jumping off of 12 foot walls) and looked for months for a shoe that I could walk around in that would not hurt my foot. Found it in this shoe. I am sure I will wear it everyday this fall and winter.
So exicted to get this shoe. I got the bramble color and its a cute purple. Note to buying running shoes online... be sure to go a size or a size and a half up from your cute shoes from Target. This will allow enough room in the toe area for the swelling and pressure from running. Normally i wear a size 6 in flip flops and such, and i bought a size 7 and its perfect! Highly recommend.
'nuff said. Almost. But really, so thrilled with this shoe, I will buy another pair. Great fit- I found it runs true to size, does not slip in heel or pinch in toe box. Great look- got shoe in Azure and love it. Using blue SuperFeet insoles which are working well.
