Florida Trails

Run 30 miles in the sand in this shoe with a trail gaiter on and you can take off your socks and have clean feet. Midsole could be better in the next model but the rest of the sole could not and I don't think you'll find a better heel and forefoot grip system anywhere for any surface. This shoe actually smells good after hundreds of miles of running too - a testament to the antimicrobials.

I love these shoes!!

I have been wearing my Masochists for the last 6 years and it is by far the best trail running shoe i've ever used. Great tracking, and a great feel on all types of terrain. I'd highly recommend these for anyone looking to try a new shoe out of the trail. You won't be disappointed.

Advocate to cautionist...

After mixed experiences with both Merrell and North Face, I attempted to try something new. After conducting some research, I found rave reviews about the Masochist, and so decided to try it for myself. From the start it was one of the most comfortable pair of trail runners I've ever had. It fit nicely, and proved itself durable enough for my daily activities as an elementary school teacher. However, the Gryptonite outsole has recently begun to separate in various parts from the shoe (even from right under the middle of the shoe), and the waterproof characteristic is now gone. I have never encountered these problems with other trail-runners and was most disappointed, especially since they are only 9 months old. While I usually need a new pair of shoes at the end of 12 months, this is only because the tread is worn down, never because of questionable construction. Not recommended.
