I've tried numerous running shoes for both the road and the trail. These have to be the best I've found so far. They have great support in both the heel and the arch. And they seem extremely stable even on uneven ground. They don't heat up; and if they get wet; they drain fast and stay about the same weight. Only complaint is the laces. Double knot them, or you'll be stopping to retie them. I'm 6' 210#, and their holding up very well...
