Not So Tough

Not a bad overall ride for an "overbuilt" trail runner. I bought a pair of these last season and while they feel secure on foot I did not find them so durable. I managed to catch a root on my home trail on the HURT Trail 100 course and completely ripped off the top of the toe box. Okay, so it happens. My biggest beef, the Montrail of old would have replaced these in a heartbeat. Columbia; however, basically told me I was SOL. Alas, the last pair of Montrails I owned.
