A comfortable and stable shoe with deep lugs, which provides excellent grip on mixed terrain including mud and lose rock. The cushioning in the mid-sole helps with shock absorption, making them extremely comfortable so they can be used for city runs on hard ground as well as trails. The Quicklace system means they are easy to adjust and coupled with the cushioned tongue it ensures a snug fit with no heel lift. The generous toe box also gives your lower foot ample space to expand with each foot strike. They have a 10mm heel drop which won’t suit everyone, but they also have a wide base that makes them feel stable, and at 290g they are lightweight. The Gore-Tex lining helps to keep water splashes from entering through the upper, keeping your feet nice and dry in everything but the deepest puddles and heaviest rain.
▶Verdict: Lightweight and incredibly comfortable performance.
▶Best for: Muddy and soft terrain.
