IMO, the first thing you need to consider when getting a pair of barefoot shoes is how they fit your foot. It doesn't matter if it's the best on the trail if it is uncomfortable to you. Beyond that, I'm not a runner, so I can't speak to that specifically, but I can say that the Lithe seems to offer a little more structure and support when compared to the Pace or Dash so it may be better for gnarly terrain.

I have gotten so many compliments at work about these awesome capris! Just a warning, you have to have attitude to pull them off, they're just as obnoxiously bright as they appear. The only down side is that they attract lint and cat hair like a magnet, I am constantly having to lint roll these pants to avoid looking like a beast.

I love the print, dress cut, length, and material, but am shocked that people think that the shelf bra (it's the same style you'd find in a cheap cotton cami) is doing them any favors. I've always been a more conservative dresser but even if I wasn't, there is no way I would ever wear this dress without a strapless or sports bra (and frankly, the people I see wearing it braless would really benefit from more support). Otherwise, it's a great cut and length.

I love these shoes! I tried on all the Merrell gloves that I could find and these were the only ones that fit my huge feet! I don't actually use them for trail running but I wear them for daily wear as a lightweight and comfortable shoe. I can walk in them for 8-12 hours without any trouble. The only downside is the lack of arch support (as expected in a barefoot shoe)... I have a very high arch (not even super feet reach my arch) so it's a common problem.

I have used these for skiing/riding & as a liner glove and they have been great! I run cold, especially in fingers and toes so I knew that I'd usually use them as a liner but they're surprisingly warm as long as I'm moving. I decided to go with these over a thicker liner because I need to write and sort paper while working on snow so I need to have some dexterity when I don't have my thicker gloves on. I chose these because they fit me better than other touch screen gloves (these come in an XL! yay!). Overall, when these wear out (which they will soon, I used them all the time) I'll definitely buy another pair.

I recently got these boots because they are one of the narrowest boots with a BOA lacing system. (Note to snowboard boot companies: women's feet do not stop at size 9 or 10, please make some larger boots, for intermediate/advanced riders, so we don't have to fight men's boots in order to ride.) I really like the feel of the boot and especially enjoy how stiff they are, I am a trained skier so I am used to relying on my boot for quick responses when on the snow. The BOA system is great, I'll never go back to another lacing system.

These are our uniform pants when we're teaching skiing and snowboarding and we're not impressed. (Luckily we're allowed to wear our own black pants to work if we want, every year, more and more of us are ditching these pants.) As it's Washington, rain is very common, yes even in winter; these pants are not waterproof! When it's raining, wearers of these pants can't be outside longer than 5 minutes before getting soaked. Even sitting on the chairlift earns the wearer of these pants a very cold/wet butt, very disappointing. The 'feminine fit' is practically non-existent, these fit much like the men's version of the pants.

They're Chacos, either you love 'em or you hate 'em, the rest of the reviews can tell you that much. The main difference I have had between these and my Z1 Pros is the adjusting, not only do these have the toe loop but with the double straps, adjusting is much more difficult. I love the look of the ZX2 much more than the Z2 but getting both straps adjusted the same is sure a pain, I'm still working on mine.

I ordered these shoes a few weeks ago and love them so far! They're quite warm even though they're breathable too, the tread is amazing, the insole is pretty good (I have a really high arch so I'll have to replace it anyways, but for the average foot, it's good), and the sizing is great. As a size 11, it's important that shoes are large enough because I can't get a size larger, these shoes are great. My favorite part is the lime green color though!
