Montrail FluidFlexTo be clear, this is about the Montrail shoe, before Columbia took it over. I am guessing the model is unchanged. What I like about this trail shoe is the 4mm offset. I usually run roads, paved and dirt. Also some easy multi purpose trails. This shoe is a good "cross over", good for road and trail. Unfortunately because of the winter most of the running in these has been on the Treadmill. It is a comfortable shoe, a bit narrower than my Kinvaras. Also feel a tad heavier (I have not checked the specs on this). When I get to run trails this Spring, Summer, I will change my review if needed. Only complaint so far is the short laces. If laced the "standard" way there is just enough left to tie, forget about double knot.
