Mountain Kicks 2016

From light and fast trail runners to full-on rock scramblers.

By Lisa Jhung

Ours testers included short-distance trail runners, competitive ultrarunners, casual hikers, and long-haul backpackers. All told, we had a couple hundred years of run-hike-climb experience between us. For two months last spring, in and around Boulder, Colorado, we put nearly as many miles on 30 different pairs of shoes while running, rock hopping, and even Class 5 scrambling. Plus, time tested running gear, from the lightest windbreaker on the market to the our favorite sports bra.
