THE SELL: Protection from whatever Mother Nature throws your way. THE TEST: The Pace Trail has all the bells and whistles of a heavy-duty soggy-weather trail shoe: waterproof upper, bulletproof toe bumper, hefty cushioning, and the most aggressive tread of the group. Testers, especially those who prefer more traditional trail-running shoes (with heel-to-toe drops in the 10-to-12-millimeter range), raved about the Pace Trail’s competence on uneven, rocky terrain. Of course, all that armor comes at a cost—at 13.6 ounces they’re not light, and the weatherproofed uppers don’t stretch for runners who have wide (or swollen) feet. THE VERDICT: At this price, the Pace Trail makes a heck of a hiking-and-trail-running hybrid. 13.6 oz; 12-mm heel-to-toe drop
