The movie "Shrek" premiered in 2001 as a fun satire littered with pop culture references, filtered through the lens of a standoffish ogre. "Shrek II" retained the same core cast while improving the animation and plot sophistication on the way to becoming the highest-grossing animated film of the 2000s. Similarly, the second-generation Ultra 100 is still a shoe for the cushion-conscious distance runner, but some key features make it even more appealing to a wider audience. Right away, discerning runners will notice an expanded toe box, which has gone from "Euro" wide to a more generous width. The Vibram Traction Lugs feature itty bitty nubbins on the sidewall of the lugs for amazing grip in all directions. These Vibram soles seem to strike the perfect balance of traction and efficiency to give you grip when you need it and a smooth ride when the trail chills out. The rockered sole encourages an efficient gate and provides a healthy dose of energy return. Unlike many other high-cushion shoes that can make you feel disconnected from the trail, the Ultra 100 gives plenty of feedback. If you do find yourself in an enchanted forest, there is a toe bumper in place to protect you from ground gremlins who are waiting to tear your shoes apart. Just like Shrek, these shoes are another loveable character, brought to you by the Dynafit family of footwear.
