Best Tech-Trail Runners 2023

Definitely lighter than the GTex model, with a pliable upper that hugs the foot nicely. Good heel hold with proper lacing. Appreciate the waterproof surround of the midsole. These took a few kms in the trails to soften up a bit, now? They're fast, agile, and responsive. I'd place these at *almost* ultra-level shoes. Grip is aggressive but not clumsy/catchy, sheds muck easily. Realy a great high-performance trail shoe with all the right stuff. Bought these to replace my (sadly now dead) Saucony Xodus-Ultra V.1, this years V.2 just didn't cut it. The Peak5 are *very* similar in all the right ways and then some; not as light, or soft hitting, but they make up for it in feeling super solid underfoot and balanced.

Bring back the Wide shoe sizes

Merrell is finally chasing the real hikers with their trail runners. However, real hikers know that a wide toe box is crucial to comfortable hiking. Until a wide show is available, Merrell won't be successful in recapturing the hiking market.

The right shoes for tough terrains

I have been using Merrell trail shoes during the past 8 years. After I wore this pair during a though 100-miler race, I can say: Pros: -Lightweight (9.5 Oz in 8 US). -Cushion is fantastic. Its rock plate really helps. -Excellent grip, perfect for technical terrains. -Exterior is very protective. After 120 miles shoes look in a very good condition. Con: -It would be perfect if they were more confortable. Not bad after all (zero blisters during my race!). Agility Peak 5 was the right choice.

Great Shoe- but fit issues for me

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:

I was looking for a trail running shoe with solid outsole, rockplate, and good cushion. This fit the bill in spades. The foam is great, vibram mega grip is best in the business, and overall shoe construction was great. Loved the elastic loop on tongue to tuck laces under. Unfortunately the fit was off for me that I had to send back after just testing in the house. These seemed to fit a touch long compared to my pretty standard go to fit in 10.5. I have a wider/ more square toes and like room in the toe box- which i found to be plentiful. The main issue was the heel cup- which my foot was swimming and had a ton of movement- even with a runners lock with the lacing. I knew this would cause problems on the trail. If you have a fat calcaneus- this one might be a winner for you!

Almost Perfect

Comfortable, light weight, well ventilated and good grip. Only gripe is they could be a little wider in the toe box.

Love 'em

I love these shoes. I bought them as a replacement for my Merrell Nova 2's which were really comfortable but had some durability issues so I decided to switch it up a little and try the Agility Peak 5. These shoes are a lot to take in aesthetically so I did have hesitations based purely on their appearance but they are ridiculously comfortable. I've had them a little over a month or so now so they have some miles and I would absolutely, 100% buy them again. They are great.

Just bought these a few days ago. They look good but first thing I thought was how thin and cheap the top looks and feels. The sole and bottom are fine but the mesh on top can barely hold itself up!! It also looks like the material has paint that mimicks rubber. The 1st ever merrell shoe I've been disappointed with.
