Nike Zoom Wildhorse 5 Review

The Nike Wildhorse 5 is a decent trail shoe that is neither exceedingly fast nor exceedingly durable. It is pretty much middle of the road, which is not a bad thing.


 

Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 5 Review

The Nike Terra Kiger 5 was created with speed on the trails in mind. From toe to heel, the shoes are designed to let the runner blaze down dirt trails, paved trails and roads. The more technical the terrain, the less effective the Kigers can be


 

New Balance Hierro v4 Review

The New Balance Hierros are built for the trail runner who seeks protection and has patience in getting his or her feet into the shoes.

The shoes are rugged, offer superior protection and the color schemes mask the natural colors of most trails. For me, the shoes represented more of a slimmed-down hiking boot that


 

Saucony Peregrine ISO Review

The new Saucony Peregrine ISO is the continuation of a trail shoe that performs well for most trail runners. It has been updated to provide more cushioning but retains the same reliable comfort and performance


 

Inov-8 Mudclaw 275 Review

The Inov8 Mudclaw 275 name says it all. Its superior lugs provide unbeatable gripping on the trail no matter what Mother Nature in in store for your run. However, if it’s speed you want, these are not the shoes for you


 

Salomon S-Lab Sense 7 Review

I was excited to try out my first pair of Salomon trail shoes. That excitement continued as I slipped them on. They are comfortable and just feel like a lightweight, fast shoe, built for cruising through single-tracks. But my joy waned the more I wore them and discovered that they lack the durability I need in a trail shoe


 

Brooks PureGrit 7 Review

The Brooks PureGrit 7 is a trail shoe sticking to its niche in the industry — and with good reason. There are shoes that offer more support. There are shoes that offer more comfort. But for trail runners who want to go fast on trails — even while transitioning to and from paved surfaces — the PureGrit 7 delivers



 

Suunto Ambit 3 Run HR Monitor Review

This watch is designed for a niche market: multiple-sport athletes who are competitive and/or data geeks. When working properly, the watch can produce great data to help the athlete understand his or her performance whether they are running, biking or swimming. For athletes focusing on one sport and are less tech savvy or


 

Brooks Cascadia 13 Review

The Brooks Cascadia 13 gets a modern upper in the latest iteration while maintaining its midsole, outsole and other details from the previous version. The shoe is relatively heavy, which drags down the responsiveness and overall feel of the ride


 

Saucony Koa Tr Review

The Saucony Koa TR bills itself as a hybrid solution for those seeking a running shoe that will handle both trails and paved surfaces. While the shoe is comfortable and supportive, it falls short of expectations for both road use and trail running


 

Hoka One One Challenger ATR 4 Review

The Hoka One One Challenger ATR 4 is a shoe that epitomizes the best of both worlds in a couple of key areas. The Challenger ATR 4 is a trail shoe that can handle pavement, while also boasting a lot of cushioning but overall is lighter than most other trail shoes


 

Brooks Caldera 2 Review

The Brooks Caldera 2 offers runners a strong balance of speed and durability on natural trails, roads, paved trails, fire roads and most other surfaces



 

In my buildup to my first 100K, one of my largest issues is determining which vest would be best. My preference would be to have a vest where I could use bottles (I am not into bladders) and have a decent amount of storage for nutrition and other necessities between aid stations.




 

Brooks Mazama 2 Review

The Brooks Mazama 2 makes minor modifications to improve an already excellent shoe for trail running. It is light and fast, making it a go-to option for trail racing on courses up to 50K without significant mud or similarly challenging obstacles
