Great distance shoe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I really like this shoe. To the point where I am on my second pair of them, plus I have then in the outdry as well. At first I thought they felt a little heavy and bulky on my feet, but they are very comfortable, and I didn't notice them feeling heavy while running. It did take a little experimenting to get the laces just right, but once they were I have had no rubbing and no blisters. I wore them on the grand canyon rim to rim to rim, the zion traverse, high sierra camp loop, and a couple other high mileage trips. So far they have never let me down. (the outdrys are warm so don't bother unless you really will be getting them wet, so far I have only used them when running after a small snow)
Not a bad sequel
I loved the Mountain Masochist I, and this update is still a solid trail running shoe. There is a good balance of stability and cushioning that leads to comfort both on the trails and on the half mile of pavement I run to get to the trails. Like the prior version, this still a good shoe for a runner with a narrower, high-arched, low volume foot, but I've had to work a little harder getting the upper nice and snug without getting it too tight. This may get better as they break in. Overall, this model still has the grippy sole, reliable tread, tough exterior, and blend of cushion and stability that makes the Mountain Masochist my go-to trail running shoe.
