    Comments about Mens Mizuno WAVE Cabrakan Trail Running Shoe:

    In reading the following keep in mind that I'm really new to trail running. My marathon shoe is the Renegade so when I decided to try trail events I stuck with the same technology as a reasonable starting point. I ran my first event, 20K on rough and very hilly trails. A couple of the climbs were steep enough that my chin wasn't far from the ground. The Cabrakans worked very well for me, plenty of grip, stability and protection from sharp objects underfoot. I'm pleased enough that I have no need to look further for a decent trail shoe until perhaps I become more experienced and perhaps not even then it's a very nice shoe. BTW I'm 6' and 180 pounds.

      Comments about Mens Mizuno WAVE Cabrakan Trail Running Shoe:

      I did two 20 miles run in the alps over snow, thru rivers, on all kind of terrain you find above 2300 meter altitude: dirt, rocks, grass. It is very comfortable, good grip, secure steps. Only disadvantage: due to the water resistant top, once wet it takes a while until the water is out of the shoe.

      Comments about Mens Mizuno WAVE Cabrakan Trail Running Shoe:

      I run rugged trails (for Wisconsin) year round as well as road running. These are strictly trail shoes in my opinion. They were a bit stiff out of the box. The traction and stability work well for me(5'6" 156) and my running style. I love that they are orange and that the laces stay tied. They clean up nicely but do hold moisture on the inside. Waiting to see how they perform on the snow covered trails.

        I run rugged trails (for Wisconsin) year round as well as road running. These shoes are strictly trail shoes as far as I am concerned, and they are fantastic on the trail. They were a bit stiff out of the box. Fit me pretty much true to size. The traction and control is perfect for me (5'6" 156)and my running style. They clean up well on the outside, but do hold moisture inside. I love that they are orange, and the laces stay tied. Waiting to see how they will perform on the snow covered trails.

          It's my first pair of Mizunos, but I like them a lot for trail running. And they're orange!

            First time out on muddy dirt trails the shoes clumped up with mud. They hosed off pretty well. Second time out ground was soft and dewey and soles stayed clear. Great traction and comfort in wet grass. Good stability. I don't know what more you could ask of a trail shoe.

                I am currently on my second pair of these shoes. I got about 4 months (400-500 miles) of use out of the first pair. I noticed the fit became sloppy and had to wear a thicker sock for the last month or so, The lug sole held up well. I purchased 1/2 size down the second go around, wear a thin sock, and I am pleased. If you don't want support you don't want this shoe. However for lightweight trail shoes with support its a great shoe.
