Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.

Floating. That’s the feeling on your best days—weightless, comfortable, effortless. ShapeShifter Technology allows you to cover more miles and push your horizons on what is possible. On the underside, a segmented sole swallows irregularities in the trail while offering plush protection underfoot. Up top, a 3D stretch mesh sock conforms to the foot, while the Boa lacing system dials in precise closure. Our best shoe to keep your float.

An innovative midsole allows for the upper to be stitched directly to it, eliminating considerable amount of cement and additional layers of material. This construction is lighter, and puts the user in direct contact with the cushioning properties of the midsole for a more supple, responsive ride. The upper is very sock-like, using a 3D stretch mesh to completely conform to the user’s foot. The synthetic upper provides structure to the stretch and it is all pulled together with a new Boa® closure system that eliminates lace crossings, for the ultimate, low friction, micro adjustable fit.


Injection molding the EVA midsole lets us control the physical properties to a higher degree as well as mold the heel and toe counters, medial lacing system and stitch flange for attaching the upper into one unit. The top side of the midsole is fully shaped to match the natural contours of the foot. The sole is made of individual rubber pods that independently flex and conform to the irregularities of a trail surface. All these features come together to deliver exceptional cushioning, stability and traction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trails, snow, mud--tackles it all--super comfortable! Love these shoes! I've hiked and run many miles in various conditions. They fit like a glove, are lightweight and make me feel fast and nimble running over rough terrain. November 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by They've got some hard miles I run only trails and the majority of them are the technical trails scattered throughout Utah. I have normally worn Brooks (Cascadia and Pure Grit) and Hoka, with some New Balance mixed in for good measure. I often switched between shoes depending on the distance and type of trail. Since getting the Ultra SST, once our snow melted, I haven't run in another shoe since. I've got about 400k of hard, technical, trail time and they are my most favorite shoe to date. They fit well, they are light and stable, and perform well over shorter and longer distance runs. I did put an insole in them to keep my foot a little more stable inside the one piece upper. Great shoes and I'll be buying more of them. July 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sure Footed and fast. This is shoe is very special. It feels protective yet light. Running over sharp rocks and tree roots I never felt in danger of losing grip. Thru muddy watter, it drained just fine and over smooth grade the thread rresponded weel when pushed. I felt and was fater on some occassions, it made a good day better. May 28, 2014
