Is the Ultra 105 GTX XCR the exact same...

Posted on

Is the Ultra 105 GTX XCR the exact same shoe as the Ultra 105, minus the gore-tex lining? Do they weigh the same? Feel the same? I love the Ultra 105's but am having a hard time finding them, so been thinking bout the GTX XCR, just not sure if they will be too much for me.

Hey there, I have the men's versions and the only differences are just that, the Goretex... they fit/feel the same, but the XCR version doesn't breathe as well... but fall is on its way!

I love this shoe. I have the 105 for local runs and the XCR for mountain runs that involve more creek crossings, snowbanks, and puddles. I love them both. They XCR are warmer than the regular ones, but still breathable. Hope that helps? I always have cold feet, so warm shoes are not an issue for me. But the stiffness/ support is exactly the same.
