With 12 km in the trail, here's a quick take on the shoes. The initial impression formed over the shoes are pretty promising with the aggressive lugs design giving a lot of bites on the trail terrain. No problem going up and down the hill, but I can't say the same on wet tarmac. Cushioning is sufficient and the fit was also comfortable for my wide feet. It weights slightly more compare to its road running sibling but it is still a winner in the trail shoes department, it is not heavy.

Will be putting in more mileage over the coming weeks to form a proper opinion over the shoes. A no names mentioned suggested me to take it for a mud bath and I might do just that to make sure the word dirty is appropriately use when the final report is out lolz. Now I better go engage a few mountain goats aka Ah Siao to bring me along for their crazy trail training.
