Dynafit's Ultra 100 has been one of their most popular all-around shoes for folks who wanted a bit more cushion. The shoe's versatile performance remains, but various elements have been reworked in this edition. This reimagining of the Ultra 100 has a recast midsole EVA foam that gives a fantastic ground feel. The outsole--featuring Vibram's signature sticky rubber lugs--is aggressive enough to climb the steeps and handle the sidehills, but well balanced to give a nice ride on smooth single track. Since endurance runs and ultra-marathons are all about energy conservation, the rockered sole supports efficient motion with each stride. Rocking plenty of cushion and a generous stack height there is still a surprising amount of trail feel. This is welcome news for folks who prefer more feedback from their shoes rather than running on a pair of squishy marshmallows. For mixed terrain, long races or simply as a cushioned training shoe, take the Ultra 100 out for a spin and discover all its wonders for yourself.

Questions & Reviews
Soles are impressively grippy, and wearing well. While I wouldn't want these shoes for 5th class scrambles, the tacky rubber is more than enough for a smear here or there.
If I had one qualm, it would be the stretchy laces. I've found the need to adjust laces a few times through the day. I think I would like a flat, static lace more.
I sized up 1/2 a size from my "normal" street shoe size.
