great shoe for rough trails
This is my 3rd pair in 3 years. I love them. I run almost exclusively on singletrack trails in the ROCKY mountains. The sole is very good at protecting my feet from sharp, pointy rocks. I've tried lighter, thinner soled shoes and have had a lot of trouble with sore feet following a run. these babies may not be the lightest, fastest shoes around but they last a whole running season and protect my feet very well.
