Unexpectedly great training shoe

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I'll be upfront: I got a pair of these shoes in March 2013 as a gift. I didn't pay them much attention at first, as this sort of shoe is not really my taste. I like lighter, more stripped-down shoes like the Montrail Rogue Fly and FluidFlex. The heaviest shoes I normally run in are Brooks Pure Grit. Instead, I started wearing these as casual shoes for walking around town.

However, one day I got to the trailhead and found that I'd left my running shoes behind, and went for a run using these. I guess I've been using minimal shoes for too long, because it was a revelation! I was able to charge down rocky trails without any real concern for how I placed my feet. These have a ton of cushioning, and I really enjoyed the contrast, the comfort, and the freedom to relax.

The shoe is similar in feel and protection to the Brooks Cascadia. Plenty of midfoot support, and a reasonably roomy toe box.

These are not shoes that I would wear in races, but they are still reasonably light -- very light for the cushioning they provide. However, they make an awesome training shoe, and I have taken to wearing mine a couple of runs per week. They are very pleasant to wear on extra rocky trails, or when my feet feel tired, and need a rest.

No issues at all with durability so far...

Solid for both road and trail

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

The FluidFeel has a smooth, stable feel on the road while also providing traction on dirt. They are a bit heavier than I like in a trail shoe, so I use them as an everyday road shoe and venture onto dirt once in awhile. The fit is great, no chaffing.

Overall, a little heavy for my taste, but one of the best road/trail hybrids I've ran in.

Good shoes with a slight flaw

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

These shoes have good cushioning, good traction and are fairly stable, too. But, the one failing, especially for a trail shoe, is that the mesh fabric isn't that strong, nor is it protected in any way at the ball of the foot. As a result, my pair tore out on the outside edge, where, presumably, there was more rubbing against the unavoidable rocks, roots, and vegetation.

Having said that, I am now on my second pair. Hopefully, Montrail addresses the problem in the next iteration of the FluidFeel.

Running Now In Hoka Bondi 2, Size 11, and...

Running Now In Hoka Bondi 2, Size 11, and UK Gear 1000, Size 10. What size should I order in this shoe, also is this a good road running shoe? Thanks For Your Help..Florida

They work just fine on road, although for that purpose they seem a little stout. I've never run in Hokas, but I imagine compared to Hokas they will feel light and minimal! They also have a traditional heel-to-toe drop, and whether that feels comfortable depends on what you're used to. They really shine, however, on rocky trails. I wouldn't buy them for road running. This is really a trail shoe that you can use for a mile or two on road to get to the trailhead. Sizing seems right on the money: buy the same size as you wear in your everyday shoes.
