The Good
  • Excellent ground feel
  • Soft, responsive midsole cushion for comfort and agility
  • Wide forefoot and toe box for toe splay
  • Lightweight and agile on turnover
The Bad
  • Overall shoe volume is too little
  • Lacks rigidity and support
  • Partially sewn-in tongue causes it to slide to one side
  • Lace pressure due to low volume

The Good
  • Wide toe box and relaxed fit upper.
  • The optional rock plate works well and adds versatility.
  • This model has added padding to the tongue and heel collar increasing the comfort of the upper.
The Bad
  • The burrito tongue doesn't seem to quite work correctly and tends to bunch.
  • Traction is somewhat too tame for anything other than gentle terrain
  • Shoe laces are a bit short.
  • No forefoot gaiter hook in this model.
