Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Trail N 2 V2 Trail Running Shoe:

I'm an ultramarathoner and I have 50 miles on my PI EM Trail N2 v2's. 3x 5-8mile runs and 2x 15-20mile runs. Runs were 90% Trail. My previous shoes have been Brooks Glycerin (8 thru 13), Newton Gravity 3, and about 6 pairs of Altras (Torin, Olympus, and Lone Peak). I chose the PIs because after running in Altras for years I've developed PF that will not go away, so I'm trying to add just a little heel drop back into the mix.

These shoes are great! Despite being compared to other maximalist shoes like Altras and Hoka's, these are not over the top cushioned shoes. They are firm, but forgiving! The EM technology that some people say take a while to used to, I never even noticed. The transition from the mid foot to toe off is smooth! The best thing about these shoes is the fact I don't notice my feet at all when I run: 1) My feet don't hurt (the seamless upper is super comfy), 2) I don't slip (gnarly tread), 3) I haven't had a single blister, 4) they're quiet, and 5) with 50 miles on them, there are no signs of wear yet! My only complaint is that during one session, we had some rain and the usually buffered out hard pack we run on her in SoCal, was tacky mud and the tread became clogged and seemed difficult to clear.

      I have put over 350 miles on my new Trail N2 v2's and they are awesome! Perfect fit in the upper and great cushioning for my 4+ hour longer runs. The forefoot rockplate has saved me several times from rock bruising on technical trails.
