the thing is, these are a little heavy for light trail work. not in weight because they are nice and light and just a few ounces heavier than the new balance 910's but in build. these are truly designed for technical, rooted, rocky, steep trails. they're stable and sturdy and offer tons of support, something i've been looking for after doing the minimalist thing for a few years. i bought these after a run over georgia pass on the colorado trail killed my feet in a pair of newtons. not to slight newtons at all. i just need a little more protection these days. you can wear them for the flats and for the easy but where they come into their own is the gnarl.
I haven't found another trail runner that works better for my feet. I have a medium volume foot with low to normal arches and I require a moderate amount of support. These shoes are perfect at giving me a snug wrap around the forefoot while giving my toes room to wiggle.
Also, I've run 3 ultras in these shoes and I can say they are solid for 400+ miles with the best traction on mud, ice, and slick volcanic rock of any other trail runner I've tried. Plus, they're durable as hell and look good.
What else can you ask for?
My only negative comment is that these shoes have been tearing. The outside of the shoe has been torn open on two pairs of these shoes about 2 inches back from the front of the shoe. These have torn (small hole - half inch) while racing, and although I was able to finish the race without even realizing they tore open, I had less than 400 miles each time it happened, so I thought that was a little early. I switched to another brand of shoes only have have them tear open in the same place, so maybe it is how or where I run instead of the shoes, but I have switched to a half size up to play it safe. Yes, I still am using these because I like them, but I think I may have to replace them more often than I should.
The OutDry (formerly GTX) version works well if you want that. Personally, I've gone away from that even for trips with lots of water crossings. Better to just blast through the water and then let them dry out. (Weather permitting.) It's harder to do that with the GTX, which can take a painfully long time to dry.
It's a bit heavy and stiff for regular road running. You can do it, of course -- and I did for a long time --- but you'll eventually miss your dedicated road shoes.
