MSRP $125


Grip/Traction- Solid traction with an off road bulkier feel.  The sole is thicker than what I am used too. This is amazing off road not a shoe for the pavement.

The traction is great in snow, mud, and all varied terrain. This excellent traction provides incredible sturdiness going up and down steep inclines.


FIT- This shoe has a nice fit with a unique sizing that offers 1/3 sizes.  For example the one I tried is 10 1/3.  I am typically a size 10 and this extra sizing is just the perfect adjustment.  The toebox is snug and feels like a very comfortable hiking boot.


Runability- This shoe is made with GORETEX material.  Completely water resistant and very warm in exteremely cold conditions.  Very breathable in warm conditions too.  I wore these on a snowy trail run with temperatures around 10 degrees and in temperatures above 85.  The shoe was very good in both situations.  You don’t have to dodge puddles in these shoes.  I really like the cushioning in this shoe.  I felt like I could accelerate downhill and still have the stability.


Appearance- is more like a hiking boot customized for running. The shoe has traditional lacing with a look of high quality and durability.
