Fall 2013 Trail Running Shoe Buyer’s Guide

Reebok Outdoor Wild

Reebok Outdoor Wild, $85

Category: Rugged Mountain Runners

Weights: 8.4 oz. (men’s), 9.1 oz. (women’s)

Heights: 12mm (heel), 8mm (forefoot)

Fit: The Outdoor Wild has a medium fit from heel to toe, but the midfoot can cinch down for those seeking a tighter hold.

Feel: Testers found these to be cushioned and comfortable, with some support, and appreciated being able to get a sturdier with moderate stability.

Ride: Says one tester, “this is the monster truck of trail running shoes!” A rugged outsole allowed testers to tackle a full spectrum of trail conditions with confidence and gusto. But the increased underfoot security meant less agility with fleet footed runners finding the ride somewhat clunky, especially on technical trails.
