Columbia Ravenous Shoe Review
Trail running can be a fun alternative to road running, but having the right kicks can make or break your day. We’ve been running in the Columbia Ravenous trail running shoes on the rocky, rutty, muddy, slushy, uneven trails in and around Colorado. While we are used to the usual suspects in the trail running industry, Columbia has been able to make a big splash by delivering the Ravenous trail shoe. The Ravenous is best used during warmer conditions as they are very airy with much of the upper being covered in mesh. When getting these shoes wet in the mud, they dried extremely fast which helped on our longer runs where weight becomes as issue. One of the features that sets the Ravenous apart from the rest is the a material used in the heel and upper called Tech Lite, this material has a sponge-like/foam feel to it and conforms to your foot giving you a snug secure fit. The most notable feature we want to talk about is the amazing traction system on the Columbia Ravenous. With multi-directional traction lugs, we found ourselves completely secure on every trail we encountered. This shoe does tend to be less beefy than your typical trail shoe, but we didn’t find this to get in our way of enjoying the trail. Overall, we were extremely happy with the Columbia Ravenous and highly suggest you giving it a try when trail running season starts for you this spring.
