I have the regular Mountain Masochists and love them. I just had a pretty bad ankle injury, and it'll be a while before I can hit the trails again, but I'm wondering if, when the time comes, this shoe would be a good option that provides more ankle support than lower running shoes. Is it still light and comfortable enough to run in, or does it feel more like a hiking boot? How much ankle support does it provide? Thanks!
Kerry. The Mountain Masochist Mid would be a great option for you if you are looking for a more supportive shoe that is still 'runnable.' It is not going to provide you with the support of a hiking boot but it will fall somewhere in between a running shoe and a hiking boot. The height of the shoe around your ankle will provide a little added support while at the same time will not provide enough support that they are uncomfortable to run in. Definitely try them out! A few folks us these during 100 mile races for the added support and stability. I hope this info helps!
