Devour miles of trail both above and below treeline in the Montrail Women's FluidFlex II Trail Running Shoe. An open mesh upper keeps your feet cool while everything else on your body burns. Synthetic overlays along the medial lines offer additional protection in areas prone to exposure. Your heel stays firmly in place while extra padding on the sides prevents your Achilles tendon from becoming your Achilles heel. FluidFoam runs the length of the shoe to ease the impact of your footstrike. Articulated flex grooves in the midsole help your gait flow from the point of impact to the almost instant of toe off.The 4mm offset favors mid foot and forefoot hitting gaits, but heel strikers need not shy away from this trail ravenous running shoe. Gryptonite rubber under your toes and along the lateral lines of your heel grab the ground without apology. Micro lugs dig in to give you great traction regardless of the terrain, be it a screen field, rain slicked sidewalk, or hard packed dirt on a steep descent.
