Closeouts. Blazing the trail or slowing for a descent, the outsole of Asolo's Outrider trail running shoes steps up to the challenge with Asopropel (for acceleration) and Asobrake (for stop-on-a-dime slow-downs) technology.

Asolo put structural strips of fabric going from the top of foot to over my toes. This creates a flex point, so that when I run it places pressure on the top of my mid-toes. Not sure why they thought that was smart. For around town its not noticeable, but for running miles and miles on trails its totally irritating. I could build up calluses as it rubs on my skin, but I've got enough pain thank you very much. Hello, are these trail shoes or what?

pretty happy with these so far, sole is rigid enough for running on rocks on the FOB.
other reviews indicate these run appx 1/2 size larger, which seems to be right...so I ordered by regular size of 9.5 and don't mind the little extra room (which is necessary for foot swelling during running anyway)
