For a protective, waterproof shoe that features a burly outsole, a buffering toe bumper and a high level of support and stability from the midsole, the Mindbender’s “wow” factor is that it managed to deliver all of that in a light and responsive package. Testers recommended the Mindbender for rough terrain and steep trails, noting that the firm midsole prevented stones from pushing through under the footbed. The fit is geared more toward lower-volume feet, and the flex of the rather rigid sole makes them too clunky for roads.
