Great shoe with max comfort - by , Sep 14, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
Using this shoe as a hiking shoe, love the everun as it truly cushions my ride. Only negative is the shoe is a bit loose (unstable) on downhill terrain, really have to tighten the laces more than usual. Other than that is a great shoe!

Great trail runnin' shoes! - by , Jul 12, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I have been running for two years in them, on the very different surface, on a large stones, through the rail ways, through the ravines, you descend and climb running in them at an angle to forty-five degrees, running in the woods, in the field, in the swamp, do not be afraid either stones, or anything else, sometimes even running on soft snow, and you know, the spikes give a strong clogging, I run in them approximately different distances up to 10 km, all seasons. Like a neutral pernation, and the rise is not very high as for the average area of ​​4 mm, and the film flex film, do not run hot and in the heat of 35 degrees and in frost... In short, a pair of shoes that is what you need!

Didn't Work For Me - by , Jul 01, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
My experience is as a non-competitive, amateur hiker and trail/road runner since 2016. Shoes are a personal thing, so take this how you will. I’m 5’10”, 180 pounds. Shoe size is 11, medium width. I generally don’t run more than 4-6 miles at a time. I ran with these on two separate 5 mile hike/trail runs (I don’t run steep uphills, my knees hate it…..). I would classify the runs as technical given the steep up and downhills and clay/sandy/rocky terrain. The first run was after a day that it had snowed and the trails were muddy. The second on a dry summer day. The Good: The quicklace system is tight and keeps the tension through out the run. I really liked how they hugged my foot when the laces were engaged. The upper lets water in easily and it doesn’t seem to hang around. On the dry run, the tread was incredible on the uphills and more or less on the downhills (see below). They fit true to size. They are lighter than other trail running shoes I have tried. Just OK: The cushion is soft. Softer than most trail running shoes I have tried. I like how it felt, but I do think it irritated my Achilles tendinitis while running on both occasions. Given the softer sole, sharper rocks were a problem and were painful on my foot if I wasn’t careful. Could Be Better: The lateral support was lacking quite a bit. During the dry summer run, I rolled my ankle on a precarious downhill because of the way my forefoot shifted in the toebox while coursing over rocks. Unfortunately, the knobby tread couldn’t make up for this lack of support. On the muddy run, the tread really seemed to collect and hold onto the mud. This was likely due to the clay content in the mud of the trails, but I couldn’t shake the mud until I got above the snow line and was running where the ground was frozen. Overall, I don’t trust this shoe because of the lateral support issue. This is amplified by the sole being softer than most. My father is in his 60s and this will likely be a perfect shoe for his pace and skill level with trail running.

Awesome grip. Ran through a mix of snow, ice , and mud and these performed very well. Fit is good and lacing system is awesome for gloved hands . My new go-to winter trail shoe ! I’ve run tons of miles in a kinvara and peregrine and these feel great

1200 Miles on the Appalachian Trail - by , Oct 11, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
I hiked through two pairs of these totaling about 1200 miles worth of trail while completing my AT thru-hike this year. I run in Kinvara's, Fastwich's, and Type A's and wear a size 10 for all of them. Some elements are great about this shoe, but there is room for improvement. Overall these are FANTASTIC! If you live in an area with mud, loose rocks, or rooty trails, this is your shoe. Favorite Aspects: 1) Cushioning: When daily walking 25+ miles up and down rigorous mountains, these kept my feet very happy. 2) Tread: 8mm! Yes! While everyone else was slipping and sliding, I was gladly striding down the trail. 3) Weight: For the comfort and underfoot performance, I was very impressed by the lightness of these. 4) Squarer Toe Box. I like the wider toe box, but keep going! People who are seriously using this shoe for what it's built for are going to experience foot swelling and will appreciate the toe room. 5) Width. I like the width, but there is a caveat to unlocking all the interior volume of the shoe. See below... Areas for Improvement: 1) Run Small: One of my favorite things about Saucony's is knowing I'm a size 10... I am a 10.5 in these. 2) Heel Slippage: The heel pocket is okay, but not great. On some occasions when wet, my heel would continuously slip slightly out of the shoe and plop back in. I wonder if a change in the fabric around the upper part of the heel cup would help. 3) To Water Proof or Not: These shoes do NOT dry out quickly when compared to other trail runners. While they can repel a splash from a puddle, when hiking or running in the rain all day long, your feet will be soaked. As splendid as Goretex and other waterproofing features are, it is impossible for them to keep your feet dry. It would be nice to have a shoe that can drain water more freely, and keep the price down. 4) More Toe Room: My toes are too tight in these when wearing a thicker wool sock. No trail runner has ever complained about having too much toe box. 5) Longer System Laces: On both sets of shoes I had to cut off the system-laces and replace them with regular laces because I could not get my foot in. I like the idea of the system laces, but they need to be longer. 6) Toe Protection: During a number of painful cases, I wished this shoe had more toe protection. This would probably increase the weight a bit, but I think the tradeoff would be worth it.

the lacing system takes a great shoe and makes it a pain - by , Aug 21, 2018
3/ 5 Stars
the lacing system leaves almost no room to easily enter the shoe. it almost requires that you use your fingers like a shoe horn, the laves should be longer to allow you to easily put the shoe on your foot!

So far this is the best running shoe I have used. The switch from an Xodus 6 (mid stack) to the high stack of the KOA ST gave me 15 years of life on my knees, no joke I don't have a lot of mud here, but what I do have is lots of granite gravel that is like mud, or water. This shoe claws up anything, in any condition! On decents it's like floating on pillows on clouds during the first half of the life of the shoe. I have a narrow, flat foot and found that it fit like a glove. The stretchy outter reminds me of a climbing slipper, kind of. Things I would change are- Make it gore tex Make the tonge bigger and flared out to deflect rocks and pebbles from getting in the shoe.(The Xodus 4 tongue). Maybe go back to a traditional lace. I still use the elastic ones but they just don't like to stay tight. They are good for the later half of life of the shoes when you need to crank down the laces with some give so, that is a toss up. Ditch the 'lace garage' and just go back to the lace pouch on the outside of the tongue/shoe (Xodus 4)- The lace garage puts the laces closer to the instep of your foot where you don't want lumps and 'pokey' points. The sole is a little tender without a rock plate, so you need to be careful about foot placement. The high stack helps but you still can bruise the bottom of your foot on a sharp pointed rock. I can see how the designers were trying to lighten up the shoe. Other than those minor things I think this is my shoe from here on out. I expect to stock up soon. I am on my second pair now. Retired the first pair at 581.5 miles. Green black and white with a lil yellow high light would be cool. lol. But lets be serious, if you didn't change a thing they still would be great. Long live the KOA ST mud/'rock'.

Great shoe!
