        Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Trail M 2 Trail Running Shoe:

        I've struggled to find a comfortable, reasonably cushioned trail shoe. After 100 miles in this shoe (~30mi/week), I can say that this is one of the best I've tried. No hot-spots, lightweight for the style of shoe, good dry traction (haven't tried wet as it hasn't rained in CA for an age). Comfortable from road to trail, tested on a 20 mile trail run and no serious foot fatigue or pain. A bit odd fit when I first tried on, but has proved to be a winner on the trails. Recommended.

          Comments about Mens Pearl Izumi EM Trail M 2 Trail Running Shoe:

          This is a well made trail shoe with all the important attributes of a trail shoe addressed. It is surprisingly lightweight. I followed the size up 1/2 size recommendation and they fit just fine. I especially like and appreciate the forefoot rock plate. I usually run about a half mile on pavement to and from the trails and they function well as a house to trail shoe. I am sure they could survive a longer road run as well. Drawback- colorways are a bit extreme, I would prefer the lacing system found on their triathlon shoes. First experience with PI and I am quite pleased.

          These shoes have a great fit and ride. They performed well on many long mountain running outings. My feet were in great shape after a mountain 50 miler. The traction is terrible in wet conditions. PearlIzumi made a terrific shoe with terrible traction. Almost the perfect shoe.
