80 / 100 based on 1 expert reviews

  • 80 / 100 by Run Haven • Adam Chase • Level 3 expert

    The snug fit and lightweight, airy feel to the Fujipro sat well with everyone but the rather tame tread “isn’t aggressive enough for rougher trails” and the low profile midsole was too exposed for those who don’t want to feel the ground in an up close and in person sort of way.

As a result, shock is reduced while allowing the shoe to have a smooth transition.

The Anti-Gravel tongue is also used to prevent trail debris from affecting or intruding the inner foot. The lace garage is also used for better closure ideal for outdoor purposes.
