I've now put on 30+ miles on these shoes and I have to say they're probably my most comfortable pair of shoes. Not in a bad way that some would take it. They just feel great!! On trails, roads, or in the gym, these shoes are simpally exceptional. They are light yet hold up great to rough trails and mud runs. I will be using these in a Super Spartan in Vegas later this year and know they will be perfect. I've even used these shoes for crossfit and found them to be great in the gym too. They have great stability and offer small offset and low to the ground which makes them a great tradeoff from Merrell trail gloves (which I love). Merrell fixed the problem from their first Mixmaster series which is very unchachteristic of Merrell to have porblems with build quality. Merrell makes high quality exceptional shoes that will within any rigor for many miles.
Mens Merrell Mix Master 2 Trail Shoes
These shoes were light and flexible right out of the box. I've run some tough races with them - they have great traction and durability.
However, these just didn't have the response or "pop" I was looking for. If you're looking for a bouncey shoe, this is not it. Felt like they run large. Looseness and hot spots on long runs. A little too harsh of a ride for my taste.
I run on trails only. Loose rock, dirt, etc. These shoes are wonderful. Very comfortable. Felt good right out of the box.
With this shoe less is more. Low to the ground, enough cushioning, etc. By most metrics I should be in a stability shoe, but the more minimalist I've gone the more all my minor injuries have disappeared.
