Really great shoe. Ran hours on rough terrain and could not feel a thing. A bit heavier than other shoes but bombproof material can certainly justify for this. Definitely consider to buy another one.
Theese shoes will take care of your feet no matter how far you run or how hard you push. They withstand rocky trails like a dream. They may be a little bit heavier than other models, put it's a fair price to pay for the incredble protection and stability features they offer. Overall, they are great trail running shoes.
