Lightweight Trainer and Trail Shoe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by UnionXC from Eastern Oregon on Saturday, August 6, 2016
I wrote an review on this shoe earlier under the name UnionXC. I have put 40 miles or so on these now and am sold on this shoe. I thought I would put a thin insole pad for additional padding on roads. However, the shoe is both tight on my foot and warm, so I only made it halfway through my run with the pads. This would be a great cool or cold wear shoe, it is a bit warm in my 90 degree Eastern Oregon climate. If I lived in the desert still, I would have to retire this shoe until fall.

As I said earlier, I wear an 11 1/2 in the Brooks Adrenaline, but had to go with an 11 in this. The show fits like a glove, has good traction, and helps me maintain a mid-foot strike.

I would recommend this for trails, specifically, but also for road training. (I rarely give a 5-star rating, so 4 stars in quite good.)
