Like a roller coaster...for your feet!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Boatman from International Waters on Saturday, July 9, 2016
The Boatman's Bottom Line: I liked these so much that I bought two pairs; one for hiking and one for trail running.
Fit: Some stores tell you to buy a half size up in this model. I like my trail running shoes to feel secure, so I bought my normal size. These shoes have a firm toe box and heel cup that keep your foot from slipping around in the shoe as you navigate turns and hills. The upper is tough enough to take trail wear and tear, yet there are no hotspots when you lace them up.
Cushion: They have the perfect amount of cushion. It's thick enough that you don't feel the pain of every rock, but thin enough that you don't lose touch with the trail. If you've owned NB's Fresh Foam Zante, this trail running version has a more firm cushion that's more fit for the trails.
Sole: The treads on the sole are big enough for mud, yet grippy enough for rock.
