Fit / The Rogue Racer wraps the foot like a glove. Most heels fit securely in the shoe, but some testers wished they had a little more room in the toe box. “These felt a little tight on the top of my foot and I needed to wear a thinner sock when running in them.”
Feel / “This shoe felt extremely lightweight and fast,” raved one tester. Runners looking for a soft landing will need to look elsewhere, but those who like to feel the ground beneath them will enjoy this low-profile off-road racing shoe.
Ride / Testers liked the shoes’ flexibility and fast transition: “It’s the fastest, most nimble trail race shoe I have ever worn, yet solid enough to use as a daily trainer,” said one tester. However, it’s lacking in forefoot protection, making this shoe inappropriate for the most technical of trails.
