2013 Summer Trail Running Shoe Review

Karhu Flow Trail, $120

Category: Versatile Cruiser

Weight: 9.0 oz (men’s); 7.5 oz (women’s)

Height off the ground: 16mm (heel); 8mm (forefoot)

FIT: The snug fitting heel pocket has two foam pods in the heel collar to prevent slippage, and opens into a medium fit through the forefoot and toe.

FEEL: With moderate cushioning and good flexibility, testers liked these comfortable runners for road to trail and less-technical outings

RIDE: Heel strikers noted a smooth riding, easy heel-to-toe transition, and, while the multi-directional, grippy lugs were up to a variety of trail challenges, a lack of rock protection left some forefoot runners with hot spots.
