Product PZW717 Review

solid ligthtweight shoe for tough trails


After enjoying success w/ the N1 trail, I thought I'd give the N2 a try for rockier conditions. I need a roomy toe box or the shoe is going to be a non-starter for me, both the N1 and N2 have a roomy toe box, but still fit snugly in the midfoot and heel. Their laces are the best I've ever used, no need for a double knot w/ these. I really liked the N1 (on my second pair), but they were a little under protective for very rocky conditions. I had two very rocky 50k's coming up so I thought I'd give the N2 a try. They were just what the doctor ordered and provided good protection for such a lightweight shoe. The drop is minimal (but not 0) as well, which I've found to be beneficial in all of trail shoes. The stack height is pretty low which in addition to the lower drop, makes for a responsive nimble shoe. The outsole isn't overly aggressive, but aggressive enough I had no problem w/ muddy or rocky conditions. The rubber is very tacky on rock, which is extremely beneficial. I've got 300-ish miles on this pair, including the two rocky 50k's and will definitely order another pair- looks like it won't be any problem getting 500 trail miles out of these. Two thumbs up for the N2's!






I bought these looking for a trail shoe that would provide some protection and cushion to get me comfortably through a 50 mile mountain trail run. I did something you should never do, ran in these shoes in the 50 miler right out of the box. Huge gamble but it paid off. These shoes are fantastic. Traction is excellent in wet and dry conditions. Provide plenty of protection from rocks without being too heavy and stiff. These are my favorite trails shoes / long run shoes.
