Montrail Rogue Fly

Here’s the thing about running shoes: at their absolute best, you don’t notice they’re there. And that’s why we loved the Rogue Fly—it’s a pared-down shoe that kept our feet planted on the trail with simple square lugs and Montrail’s sticky Gryptonite rubber, whether on easy recovery jogs on dry trails or muddy, ten-mile tempo runs. Testers raved about the Rogue Fly’s snug, one-seam upper, which was pliant enough for toe wiggling but kept the shoe’s sole in line. And unlike many trail shoes that are too stiff for variable terrain, these are a perfect concoction of light cushioning and flexibility. If you’re still more of a heel striker than a midfoot striker, you’re not out of luck: with a ten-millimeter drop from heel to toe, the Rogue Fly is a hybrid of a true minimalist shoe and a supremely light cushioned trainer. When the running is this good, who cares what type of shoe it is? 7.4 oz
