When the sun’s blazing, ordinary fabrics heat up quick, meaning you sweat harder, fatigue faster & lose focus.
Fantastic shoe. Because of certain orthopedic conditions I have, I needed a show that could go the distance without me getting left behind, on my face! The gripping sole keeps my feet stable. No ankle twisting in gritty, Rocky terrain. No slipping or sliding. Feels very secure. Platform/footbed is very comfortable. I wear them around the house! I also appreciate the design of the toecap. Comfortable and prevents a lot of possible for injuries. Great colors also and very lightweight.
Just remember to order a size up and they are not for a wide foot!
When I first put these on, they were a little stiff, but as soon as I got going on my muddy hike up a mountain in Colorado, they softened up and totally saved me from slipping multiple times. They were exactly what I needed!
I was really excited about these shoes since I like UA's road running shoes. I bought these shoes to train for my first 50 miler in November but I'm having second thoughts. The shoe has great support and they have the best grip for the most technical trails. Overall very good protection. However the downfall of the shoe is the upper. It's very stiff which caused a few blisters on the top of my toe.
I bought these shoes just before my trip to Colorado, it was my first time down there and I tested these shoes when I went for a hike to the Hanging Lake. Although the trail being 3miles, it was never flat land. It included rocks, gravel, water, dirt, mud pools and so on and so forth. I was surprised that these shoes stuck by all those conditions. I loved the grip they had towards rocks and gravel. I stepped into water a couple of times, only to realize that these shoes didn't make my feet feel dirty and soaked, they seemed really good at being waterproof. My whole path was filled with dirt and mud pools, and these shoes not only sustained that, but also did a good job of not getting much dirty. I believe all I would need is a wet-wipe to clean them and they'll be back to looking great. Lastly, the lace of these shoes, I might be exaggerating but the lace literally do magic. I tied it only once, and never ever did they loosen up.
And yes, the color is amazing in person, they stand out in a neat way!
I took these shoes on a seven mile trail, single-track, switch-back-full run in the back country of Utah, and they were incredible. They combine support, durability, and strength wonderfully. I ran on gravel, packed dirt, loose shale, and over large rocks in these shoes and they were consistently great.
Sizing: I have very wide feet, so I went with a size 11 in these shoes (I'm normally a solid 10.5 across the board in all trail running shoes). I'm glad I did, because with the internal foot bootie, plus the fact that my feet got warm and swelled (Utah in August will do that to you), I needed the extra room.
Color: This picture online does NOT do these shoes justice. It makes them look almost neon blue/green. They're a beautiful color in-person, and they really pop on the trail. The ripstop nylon material on the top part of the shoe is really cool, too. I've never owned shoes with this kind of fabric on them and I like it.
Lacing: Once laced, they stayed at that same tightness (HUGE plus). I never had to stop and fix the laces; they were locked and loaded after first lacing them before my run. Some of my other trail running shoes have laces and eyelets that slip or allow for lace movement, and I don't like that in my trail running shoes.
