The La Sportiva Helios SR trail running shoe is an ultralight, high performance trail runner designed for runners who prefer a minimalist feel with just enough cushion and rock protection for those runs and races extending high into the alpine and deep into the backcountry. Its low volume fit makes it a great pick for barefoot runners or those looking for a race shoe that will hold up to mountain abuse. La Sportiva adds the SR which stands for Sky Running. Along with high performance fit and a minimal 2mm drop, the Helios SR comes with a FriXion AT sole that grips ridgelines, steep scrambles, rugged descents and summit rocks like a champ.

These are very light and are basically invisible that is when I put them on they disappear. They provide good traction on gravel and wet roads and trails.
They are not for everyone. If you have poor form or heal strike or are overweight these are not for you.
Highly recommend. Will buy again.
Per the first comment posted, I also found the shoes to fit small. Normally I'm a size 9, but needed a 9.5 for this shoe. The rubber on the bottom is very sticky and I find provides excellent traction on most surfaces. Certain surfaces when wet, like smooth concrete or certain rocks will show that the show does have some limitations, however, as I've never found a show that works in all conditions (including my water specific Tevas) I did not take any points away for this.
as of 2 days ago I just completed my 3rd Tough Mudder (Toronto) which was 16.4km of rocks, mud, hills (up and down a ski resort), trails and 20+ different obstacles. These shoes rocked it. The shoe is super light, drains exceptionally fast and provided good traction running up the very wet down Mount Everest 2.0 obstacle. These shoes do allow you to feel the ground beneath your feel. This means that if you are running on gravel and some of it's rough or pointy, you will notice it. Your feet are well protected, but some will likely find this uncomfortable. Other than gravel roads, all other surfaces were barely noticed.
The shoe does not provide a lot of ankle support, so if you need ankle support I would look elsewhere. However, if you're looking to run trails in a very light weight comfortable shoe, I would recommend trying a pair on to see if this shoe works for you like it is for me.
(50 ml and up). I like the lower drop. They are cushioned but not squishy. I wear a 91/2 in other shoes/ NB and Pearls. Bought these in a 10. They fit well, snug but not tight. I like Sportiva for their sticky rubber but " found" that these will slip on flat wet rock. Most do anyway.
A very light shoe,not a tank. I've run rocks in them/ not long distance yet/ and have not had a problem. And they are pretty BA looking!. Figure they are good for 50 m at least. I like em.
Update: After putting more miles on this shoe I think they are great shoes but... They are really lacking on rock protection. I fixed the problem by cutting a flexible cutting board to fit and now work fine. A bit stiffer than before though. These might be more suited for shorter distances in very rocky terrain. Still like the heck out of them
