…a fantastic trail shoe, one that you need to consider.
Highly recommended, [the] Merrell All Out Peak trail runner/hiking shoes. A lot less weight to deal with, a lot better experience, and also no blisters.
At a price of $130, this shoe is priced similar to most trail running shoes on the market and I feel with the quality of the shoe, it’s worth the price. Overall, a great trail running shoe.
I prefer a little more burliness and stability in footwear, and I really like the added protection in the Peak.
