Nice offroad runner.

Was actually looking for a road runner, but the Gel Cumulus were a hair too small in a size 14. Not a lot of options at that size so went with these offroaders. I've had good luck with Merrel in the past. They are a little heavier than road shoes, but not too bad. The soles feel good on pavement or in the grass. Very good grip off road. Later support is a bit light, so trailrunning or down hills might want better insoles. The outer sole is cushiony but not super plush. Almost feels like a stability runner, but not quite. Somewhere in between. The toe box of these is enormous. If you like to have wiggle room for your toes, these are for you. Initially, it felt too much, but over time I've gotten used to it and now my other shoes feel cramped.
