Skechers GOtrail Ultra 4 Review

Skechers continues to refine their performance line and produce some top level running shoes. I was incredibly impressed with the company’s offering of the GOrun 5 earlier this year. Last year, the first shoe I tested from them the Ultra 3s, and I truly enjoyed them. So I was looking forward to seeing what had […]

Hoka One One Challenger ATR 3 Review

The Hoka Challenger ATR 3 is the third iteration of a very popular trail shoe that is bordering on classic status at this point. Road and trail runners love this shoe due to a combination of lightweight cushioning (I mean, a ton of cushioning), minimal upper overlays, and a go fast feel due to Hoka’s […]

Brooks Caldera Review

The Caldera is a new trail shoe from Brooks. The Caldera is designed to be a responsive, well-cushioned, ultra-distance trail running shoe. It is thicker under the forefoot than any other Brooks trail shoe, and features a 4mm offset. The Caldera fills a void in the Brooks trail shoe line for something that is lighter […]

The North Face Ultra Vertical Review

The North Face Ultra Vertical is a shoe that promises to give you the grip to feel confident as you up your pace on the steeps and get out on the technical trials. This shoe seems to deliver more than not. It gives an incredible underfoot feel in the grip and aggressive lugs, and on […]

Saucony Peregrine 7 Review

As it states, this is the seventh version of Saucony’s popular trail shoe the Peregrine. After some major design changes in the 6 the shoe took on a new life. The Peregrine 7 looks to have some of the features of the 6 that helped make it wildly popular with some retooling of the upper […]

Mizuno Wave Diachi 2 Review

I was pretty excited to try these trail shoes as I have heard good things about Mizuno products and had been eyeing a pair of the company’s road shoes. But after more than 50 miles of running cross-country courses and mild to moderate trails, I have lost my enthusiasm and relegated the Wave Daichis to […]

Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 3 Review

Not considering myself much of a trail runner, I am always a little hesitant to review a trail shoe since I feel like I am out of my area of expertise. What makes a good trail shoe to me isn’t necessarily traditional, as I live only 2K from a park with over 30mls of trails. […]

Brooks PureGrit 3 Review

Brooks PureGrit 3 General Info: In its third iteration, Brooks PureGrit 3 gets redesigned from top to bottom. The 3 sports a much more aggressive look, but continues to hold true to the principals of the Pure Project collection. This newest version has done away with the split toe design in favor of a more […]

Asics Fuji Trail Runner Review

Fuji Trainer I’ve been running on the Asics Fuji Trainer trail running shoes, part of their trail runner Fuji line. The Fuji Trainer is a wild styled blue beast, and my first experience with Asics and the Gel tech that differentiates them from their competitors. I was mainly running on the Trainers in the hills […]

Asics Gel Fuji Racer Review

Asics Gel Fuji Race Initial Thoughts The Fuji Racer feels like a streamlined evolution of the Fuji Trainer trail shoe. This makes sense, a lighter, faster race shoe design to complement the lower spec version. It’s a minimalist streamlined design and about 100g lighter per shoe than the Trainer. The Racer fits closer to the […]
