The torrent is the lightest mid cushioned trail runner I have, and I was very impressed with the miles I put on them in the first half of an ultramarathon this weekend. They felt incredibly soft on groomed trails and even handled technical trails well, but I would really say this shoe is more designed for dirt roads and mellow trails since it lacks a rock plate. The only reason I dropped to four stars is potential durability issues with the upper fabric, although incredibly breathable I dont think it would really put up to major abuses of mountain running. Overall a great shoe for those fast 5 to 20 mile runs! Check the size chart, I normally wear an 11 in all other hoka shoes but a 10.5 is a little on the large size.
