I feel like this shoe got a bad rap on durability and I don't agree with others reviewers on this. I have about 200 miles on a pair of these that I've used exclusively on the trails and they still look fine. I've run everything from fire roads to aggressive/rocky single track in these shoes and the uppers and outsole still have plenty left in them. I was training for a 50k in June and did multiple long runs of 16-20 miles in these and they felt great.

I've owned 3 pairs of the Mtn Masochists and this is a great trail running shoe. Another reviewer commented on the lack of durability and I couldn't disagree more. Each pair that I've owned has seen 500 miles of everything from aggressive single track to the occasional road miles and they've all held up very well. My latest pair has lots of miles on them and once I retired them from running I began using them for hiking and backpacking. After a summer of hard use hiking/backpacking they are still in great shape. Others didn't mention this but I think the shoe definitely runs on the small side. I've had to order a 1/2 size up in all 3 pairs that I've owned and would probably go up a full size if I were wearing them for anything longer than a marathon.
