These arrived this morning for test. They do look rather nice, and I’ll find out in due course what they’re like on the trail. The sole looks like it should be grippier than my usual XA Pros, the heel cup is well shaped and there’s enough mesh for them to be cool on the move and drain well when I’m bog hopping.
What’s interesting and quite heartening are the extreme differences between all the current models of trail running shoes I’ve got on test. You’d think that design could converge at some point as it’s realised that there is a single best way to go. But it’s definitely not the case.
