With a slipper-like feel, the lightweight, flexible PureGrit cradles the foot in a soft cushion. It’s not the most protective shoe—we felt some jabs when we ran over rocks—but what it lacks in girth it makes up for in agility on the run. The ample midsole cushioning dampens the pounding of pavement running, and meaty underfoot lugs grip all trail surfaces.
Swami gripe: Volume is slim; good for some, too slight for others.
Swami like: Laces locked down tight.
