In this video series Competitor's Fit, Feel & Ride test team talks more about the Dirty Dozen trail shoe review.
It's literally the coolest shoe around!
“The sock-like upper made them feel more like an extension of my foot than a shoe.”
Testers recommended the Mindbender for rough terrain and steep trails, noting that the firm midsole prevented stones from pushing through
These really impressed the test team.
"Not a shoe for efficient forefoot strikers or faster runners looking for responsiveness, but great for runners looking for a plush ride.”
The fit is a close one, especially in the midfoot, and that serves well for dexterity on technical terrain
Our testers liked its light weight and recommended it for either doing trail workouts or races off-road.
With a true “Saucony fit,” the Paramount held testers snugly in the heel and midfoot while providing plenty of space in the forefoot.
