  • Additional Information: The wide toe box is this shoe’s most remarkable fit feature. They fit snug in the heel and semi-snug in the midfoot/arch area, though the speed-lace system isn’t quite as simple (nor reliably snugging) as it is intended to be. Unlike minimalist trail shoes that require a runner to do a delicate dance through technical features, the Inferno X-Lite plows right over rocks, roots and other sharp and uneven obstacles. The ride is relatively soft and disarming, but one devoid of nimbleness, thanks in part to a fairly stiff demeanor in the forefoot. Although Inferno X-Lite shoes don’t feel heavy or bulky on rugged terrain, they tend to feel a bit bulkier on flat, smooth trails.
