Best all-around trail shoe!

I've put it through the wringer

After testing for a year, this baby is it. Wore wear for Western States, one pair, all 100-miles, zero issues. Wore the gore-tex version at a VERY wet Way Too Cool 50k this past spring and it completely dominated. Fast, but also has great traction. Lightweight. Feels like a road shoe, but performs like a competent trail shoe.
