Features & Benefits:
Seamless Upper creates a supple, lightweight upper that conforms to your foot in technical terrain
Bonded Seamless Upper toe cap protects feet from rocks, roots, stumps and other trail hazards
Perforated SBR tongue foam doesn't absorb water, while offering great comfort and breathability
Dynamic offset-shaped E:Motion midsole features our most minimalistic-level trail cushioning platform
Energy Foam cushions forefoot upon impact and returns energy back to the runner
Forefoot rock plate protects foot against stone bruising and rock push-through
These shoes are some of my favorites, due to the abnormally good sole and fabric durability. However, as a trail shoe, the sole is not nearly grippy enough for hiking or running of slippery rock. However, as I no longer use these shoes for that purpose, I am overall very pleased.
Pros: Very durable sole, very durable fabric that resists tearing from rocks, etc.
Cons: Not suitable for slippery trails, tongue of one of the shoes came unsewed (but I sewed it back), and heel is a bit higher than normal.
Overall: Definitely worth it! This shoe sticks with you for non-wet trail conditions.
Pearl Izumi, they're doing it right.
Worn recently for a 50k, trail marathon and several other long distance runs. Couldn't be more pleased with this shoe. Lots of tread and cushioning left. Happy as can be!
Great Light Weight Trail Runner
These are awesome trail running shoes for the neutral runner. Super comfortable and great traction. Light weight and fast.
