This is not a back packing shoe or a stability shoe. It's amusing to see people saying that this shoe doesn't compare to the Continental Divide, I say thank goodness. The CD was way to stiff to be a decent trail runner. This is a runners shoe, one meant for those of us who love to speed down mountains and fly over rocky terrain. It is designed with a minimalist mind set to reduce the weight, and provide critical protection but still allow you to feel the trail. It is supper flexible allowing you to run with a midfoot strike which most built up trail runners won't allow. I have run long miles in these for almost six months, and although the shoe looks like hell right now (and smells even worse), I am still putting the miles on them. Best trail shoe yet.
