Having just started trail running I didn't have a good pair of shoes to run in the various conditions (snow, much, rivers, uphill, downhill, rocks, ice...). My old pair of running shoes didn't cut it and left my feet very wet. I was often unsure of my footing and was constantly bracing for slippery terrain. My first night with the All Out Rush shoes were great! The difference in terms of stability and comfort was definitely noticeable. I ran downhill for about 300m and didn't even worry about my footing once. The shoes were covered in mud and soaking wet by the end but they dried out pretty nicely and were ready to be used again a couple days later when I was ready for my next run. I tried on the shoes at the store and ended up buying them online because they didn't have my size. I'm really happy with my purchase.
