Montrail Mountain Masochists in OutDry
So I'm finally getting the opportunity to run in these amazing Montrail Mountain Mascochists that I got about 2 months ago. I've been so incredibly busy - and am so excited to finally get some quiet trail time in the coming months. When I first tried them on, I was instantly impressed at how rigid, but comfortable they were. Much like my Montrail Rockridge trail runners, which I have totally loved. The stability and fit of these shoes allow for a thin sock. My heel has just enough room to allow for natural movement but not so tight that a blister appeared. It’s worth noting that many folks are finding the Mountain Masochist runs large and are buying the shoe a half size smaller than they normally wear. For the record, I’ve been happy wearing my standard size 9. If you haven't heard of Montrail's new Outdry technology then be pleasantly surprised. The patented OutDry waterproof-breathable technology provides the most flexible and lightweight protection available to keep runners comfortable in all conditions. The rain just pooled on my shoe with little droplets. It's awesome and sure to make the Gortex lovers take notice. As I continue to add miles and mud, I'll be updating my review here periodically. It's summer and my travel season is kicking up. I can't wait to hit the So. CA dirt, as well as Dallas, Atlanta and NY. If you are looking for a new trail shoe that has the flexibility of a road shoe but can handle the terrain you dish out then definitely try these on for size. Thanks for reading!
