Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

These trail running shoes are fantastic! Comfortable, supportive, and sturdy, and I like the look. I ran a total of 20 miles over a period of 2 weeks, during hot humid summer weather reaching 90 degrees F. My feet never felt hot in the trailster shoes!
Mentioned by most runners was that the Trailster provides ample cushioning for the very technical trails they run with lots of rocks and tree roots.
The Trailster features a full-rubber outsole with moderate lugs to provide good grip on rocks and mellow trails, while still being efficient on pavement.

What reviewers didn't like

I really missed the speed laces and returned this model.
The shoe's toe box was also noted by several wearers to be narrow and shallow, causing a few serious blisters on their feet.
It’s not the best option for really wet conditions or where maximum grip is a priority (it uses the more durable, less grippy ContaGrip rubber).
