      Comments about Womens Pearl Izumi syncroFuel XC Trail Running Shoe:

      I broke my ankle two months ago and received these in the mail during my recovery. I am finally able to get back into cardio and I love these shoes. They provide great stability for my ankle, which I am still babying. They are very comfortable: very generous toe box but snug everywhere else. My first running shoe that was fitted by a shop was the Asics so I have been hesitant to stray away. But I am very happy that I gave this shoe a try, it is even better than the Gel Nimbus or any other Asics I have tried. And at comparable prices. Styling is really nice too. I haven't had them long enough to comment on durability but I can tell you that if these wear out, I will likely buy another pair!

        Trail or road running - these shoes are absolutely the best shoes I've ever purchased. Tried all makes, models and name brands. These are the most comfortable and adaptable to any condition - hands down! No complaints. Will buy another (many) pairs.

          Haven't worn it much but found the front toe box to be plenty roomy and was able to secure my foot (very narrow) pretty well.

            I use these shoes on the local trails near my house outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Very comfy and provide good traction whether on dry dirt, rocks, cinder trail, etc., and also perform well on the road. Typically put in 3-4 miles three days a week on the trails and these have held up extremely well so far. Very satisfied with the purchase.

              Comments about Womens Pearl Izumi syncroFuel XC Trail Running Shoe:

              I got these because I was traveling to Australia to walk and hike in the rain forest in Queensland. They not only turned out to be excellent walking shoes in that area, but also very good runners for trails. I took them out on one trail run and got hooked. I generally run on pavement in different runners, so it was a bit of a surprise.
              The shoes are well built and have a rubber layer on the top of the shoe to protect it from hits against trees, rocks or protruding roots. The laces are very easy to tie and made of a strong but silky material. The upper is made of mesh which makes the shoes very breathable. They also look good with jeans.

              In terms of running, they offer good pronation control and good stability. Perfect arch support for average arches.

              I am a small frame runner (5ft/105 lbs). I run 20-30 miles per week and currently train for a half-marathon.

              Comments about Womens Pearl Izumi syncroFuel XC Trail Running Shoe:

              I am training for a half marathon. I got these b/c I plan to do mostly concrete running with some trails. I have had PIs before and they are the best shoes ever. I like this one b/c I need the extra support and the foot is stable. However, I can tell that these shoes work best with a midfoot strike. I am usually a rearfoot striker. But it has helped my form.
