    I like the extra toe room and traction with these as compared to my previous models, the Montrail Rockridge. While these are a bit heavier, the sizing seems more accurate and I like the added stability.

    This is my second pair of Montrails. The first pair I bought had a high ankle support but still made from the lightweight material and were extremely comfortable for long treks. I got my1st pair for about $40 which I thought was pretty astounding being that I've seen the same pair sold in stores for $180. Who's that for a discount? The only complaint that I had with my first pair was that the sole glue started coming apart after about 6 months. But for the price and the level of comfort and the amount of use I got out of the shoe I was pretty pleased.

    My family and I are headed to the Yucatan and I wanted a lightweight shoe with comfort, support but also something I could really beat on with some long day treks. That's why I bought the Montrail Masochist. I usually prefer a higher ankle support for long trails but this was a nice looking shoe for the price. If you prefer a higher ankle support on your trail shoe as well and are OK with spending a bit more, do a search for the Saucony trail shoe on STP. It looks like a much better shoe but it;s almost twice the price.

    I'll update my post within 6 months to let you know how these hold up.

    Shoes fit great out of the box. Bought them for hiking & planned on wearing 2 pairs of socks (liners + socks) so ordered a size larger & they work perfectly.

    I bought these based on the good reviews but my experience has been disappointment. The soles have little traction particularly in wet conditions. The soles are thin and quickly wear away. They also feel about 1/2 size too small. I ordered a size ten, but they feel too snug.

    This shoe has the typical Montrail construction; it is lightweight, great gripping sole, and well ventilated. It does, however, feel a little tight in the forefoot area. Some have suggested purchasing a half size larger but I purchased my normal size. So far I have been adjusting the laces to enlarge the forefoot and also wearing thin socks. I think if I purchased another pair of these, I would try a half size larger. I would give this shoe five stars if it fit true to size.

    Perfect fit and very comfortable right out of the box. However, I have not had a chance to test drive them on any mountain trails yet.

    I am a ultra runner, and have a neutral foot. This shoe finds a sweet spot of stability and protection, and for half the price. I LOVE Derailed......

    Montrail has generally fit a medium width foot very well since they started integrafit. This shoe is no exception. The eva through the midsole is pretty soft, so I don't expect these to last for ever, but they are comfortable and stable for my low volume size 12 feet. They are also pretty well ventilated for all of the structure they seem to offer.

    Nice shoe for the money. I'm a size 10, and they fit true to size. They seem well constructed, no problems after a month of use, they're comfortable, and I like how the look. The only thing I could nit about is that they're really squeaky when wet, and you walk on a smooth surface floor (e.g. tile, wood, etc.).
