Shoe Review

The Dirty Dozen Shoe Talk Series

In this video series Competitor's Fit, Feel & Ride test team talks more about the Dirty Dozen trail shoe review.

Running Shoe Review: adidas ClimaCool Ride

It's literally the coolest shoe around!

Zoot Ultra Kalani–($140)

“The sock-like upper made them feel more like an extension of my foot than a shoe.”

Vasque Mindbender GTX–($130)

Testers recommended the Mindbender for rough terrain and steep trails, noting that the firm midsole prevented stones from pushing through

Under Armour Apparition II–($95)

These really impressed the test team.

Tecnica Diablo Max–($130)

"Not a shoe for efficient forefoot strikers or faster runners looking for responsiveness, but great for runners looking for a plush ride.”

Scarpa Pursuit GTX–($125)

The fit is a close one, especially in the midfoot, and that serves well for dexterity on technical terrain

Salomon XR Crossmax Neutral–($130)

Our testers liked its light weight and recommended it for either doing trail workouts or races off-road.

Saucony ProGrid Paramount 3–($170)

With a true “Saucony fit,” the Paramount held testers snugly in the heel and midfoot while providing plenty of space in the forefoot.
