Rated 5 out of 5 by TaylorFC Fantastic trail runner
This is the third model of this shoe I have had. adidas continues to improve the fit and feel. This shoe runs true to size and I love the way the shoe 'locks down' my foot. I have run in these in Run For Your Lives, the Zombie Run, and other adventure type races and they hold up very well. A great shoe at regular price, even better to pick it up for less than $50. Highly recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by nOObtrailrunner Good shoe for the money
I have two 3 mile runs with the shoe and this is my first impressions:
Traction is 9/10 (but tends to be a little slick on some of the rock where I run, Cohutta Mtns)
Looks 5/10 (why do they have to be so flashy??)
Fit 8/10 - True to Size (lacing is a little hard to figure out at the top, but the double last lace closure is pretty good to lock your foot down in the heel cup)
I like running in this shoe. With the "x" type cleats in the sole you can climb with confidence (or until your legs and lungs give out!). The shoe (for not being waterproof) is HOT! My feet on 80 degree days feel like they are in an oven, I am not looking forward to 90+ degree runs in these shoes. I prefer a little more cushion, but they are sufficient for trail running. I would not tackle a 5K on the concrete in these shoes. I like the 9mm drop of this shoe as well. Rock protection seems to be adequate on the rocky trails I run on. Durability seems to be pretty good (based on 6 miles I have used them).
Needs a touch more padding for me. Pocket on the tongue to tuck the laces away and for a summer shoe it needs to be made a little cooler.
For $69 its a bargain trail runner that will take you miles and miles. I would buy these again for the price v/s performance.
