No nonsense, hybrid trail shoe
While not the best choice for slick trails, this shoe handles most terrain well; roads (paved & gravel), trails, off-trail, etc... The fit is very comfortable, and is lighter in weight than it seems. For anybody wanting a very long distance trail running shoe this is a good choice. As a member of the Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team I've gone through A LOT of different trail shoes. I can honestly say that the Fireblade is one of the most comfortable trail shoes I've ever worn. The really saved my bacon over the last couple of days of my speed-hike of the 335 mile Pinhoti Trail a couple years ago!
