Another great running shoe from Sportiva. The sole is a very deep, undulating waffle, wave thingy. The sole is the interesting bit, it initially put me off because it differs from more trad soles but I have learned how to enjoy it. The idea is that it will bend and conform to shapes and angles in the slope and it does do this very well. The rubber is very adherent and it has a very good grip on slabby rock. I sometimes don’t take a pair off for a week, as it is a good approach shoe and good to look at. It comes in Goretex in this model, and non Goretex in the Quantum, and a few colours, it is worth checking out. The best thing for me is it is polyvalent and will take a good distance on the tarmac in its stride. The sizing is a bit different, it feels more tight for a given size, so it might be better for people with a narrower foot, bear this in mind. I found this shoe to run well especially if the course never got super rough and had fast sections, not too icy, or muddy, good luck with it.
