Montrail’s latest addition to their trail running fleet is designed for the go anywhere, do anything mindset. For those of you who can’t decide where to run until you step out the front door, this shoe is for you. Heavily featured is Montrail’s new Integrafit Technology – It involves a much snugger fit around the mid-foot, with a secure yet soft heel cup. These shoes had great cushion, and were comfortable for mid to long distance runs. For those seeking some pronation control, the shoes are good for mild pronators only, but do have more correction than most trail shoes. As for grip – these shoes were comfortable on multiple surfaces, switching easily from trail, gravel and road. Due to the lack of toe protection, our favorite runs in these shoes involved a mixture of fast, smooth trails and gravel surfaces. The new Gryptonite rubber sole has large, widely spaced treads that adhere well to wet and/or muddy surfaces, and the upper dries well in warm conditions. If you’re looking for a well balanced “do anything” sort of shoe, the Montrail Rockridge is a great option.
