11 - 24 miles / week
Love me some ultra's when I'm in shape enough to complete them! Steeper the better in the Wasatch. Hoping to work back up to a 50 miler by next fall.
SCOTT Supertrac Ultra RC 2 shoe, Dynafit Vert 3 and Enduro 12 pack, La Sportiva Stream Cap, everything Odlo for clothing, Darn Tough 1/4 Micro Trail socks, Julbo Aero sunglasses.
Looks aside, this is a very versatile shoe. The Tomir still has a fairly high stack height, but I'm willing to bet that stability and trail feel are better than the other high-cushion shoes you mention. The tread is aggressive enough to scramble, but still performs well on packed dirt, or (hopefully not) pavement. Overall this is a super versatile shoe that is intended to have you covered from distance runs to scrambley adventures. Hope this helps!
Beth, So sorry for the confusion! The women's version is the black and pink that you see in the picture, we have updated the page to reflect that option. Thanks for the heads up!
Karen, Leki does make a few rubber attachments that cover the carbide tip to make them more pavement friendly. For winter-time, they sell an aluminum section that replaces the lowest section of the pole. It comes with a powder basket already attached.

Zesheng, Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we now have a sizing chart above, looks like the medium fits a men's 5-7 shoe size!
This is such a great piece of gear for short hikes or trail races. Super basic, access to water and food, can carry a jacket and poles, enough to get you from one aid station to another or up that peak. It rides really well, even on downhills. I suggest using the Dynafit specific flasks, I have been using Salomon soft flasks and find they start to fall out if they are totally full. Light, breathable, comfy.
