These are awesome. I have persistent foot and ankle issues and have multiple pairs of custom orthotics I paid hundreds of dollars for, but I don't have them in every pair of shoes and don't like constantly moving them around so I also have several pairs of Superfeet Blue insoles and they get the job done for the most part. Make sure to try on multiple sizes, I'm an 11 shoe but the F size fits me best.
I give these 5 stars because they are the only truly lightweight crampon that can attach to a running shoe. However, it takes a fair amount of practice and attention to attach these properly to a running shoe, especially if your preferred shoe has a more flexible sole. When I want crampons with running shoes and I am not counting every gram, I prefer to use Kathoola KTS crampons which have a much faster, more secure attachment system and a metal linkage bar that adds a lot of stability. The downside to the ...
I have several thousand miles on the Black Diamond Carbon Z poles, and I am on my third pair over the course of 6 years. The two pairs that broke failed in the same way, the aluminum sleeve that attaches the carbon segments becomes unglued from the carbon pole. I have heard that you can reglue the sleeve back in place but I chose to go the warranty route. My current pair has held up for over three years, perhaps they have improved the glue. Still, I give only 4 stars because even if you can reglue the alumi...
The Distance Spikes are one of the best new trail running products of the last several years. They replaced the Kathoola Microspikes for me and they're a big improvement. They are 4oz lighter and fit much more securely. The Microspikes were designed to fit hiking shoes, and they tended to move around on my low-profile running shoes while the Distance Spikes fit much more securely. The Distance also pack down much smaller. The Kathoola spikes are 10mm long while the Distance spikes are 8mm long so they aren'...
I bought these with the cheaper Cat-3 non-photochromatic lenses to replace my Smith Pivlock Max sunglasses from 7 years ago. They are comfortable on my big head while many other options pinch my temples uncomfortably. They sit a bit further out from my face than my Smiths which is great for running and biking. The lenses never touch my face and they almost never fog up. The downside of this is they let in light from below the lenses which makes them less useful on snow, where I will continue to use my Smith...
