Montrail Sizing Chart
4.6 out of 5
not for pronators- great for others!
June 10, 2010
got these to replace the hardrocks, which I totally loved, except for the fact that the soles wore out quickly on the harsh trails in AZ. These are not the best for pronators, though they are cushy & the sole design, IMHO, should last longer than the hardrocks. I am purchasing the Sabino by Montrail (how apt, considering that is the name of a famous canyon in the town in which I live....) as these are a better option for pronators and those w/ flat feet. I wish this info would have been stated more clearly in other reviews.

I run rugged trails and train about 60 miles a week. I have used Montrail for a number of years. The Rockridge has a roomy toe box and offers good protection against rocks and hazards. It holds up good even with the miles I use it for.
Great All Around Shoe!
July 19, 2011
This is my first trail shoe, so take this for what it is. I do a lot of hills and trails, but have a difficult time finding a shoe with a wide toe box (and run fairly neutral). True sizing was perfect. (I'm an 8.5 at most of my shoes). Great traction in the dirt, mud, sand. Not quite as good on solid , but what is. I also noticed that my road shoes seemed to be a little more sticky on solid rock than these. They do fine on bare rock for me, and I figure myself as aggressive on the trail. Materials are tough for break and tear. I would definitely recommend these to a friend or to anyone out there, and have another one pair later again for me.Pros: good built, nice looking shoe, it breathes, winner all around, Cons: made gtx out of this shoe!
Best for short technical trail runs
January 18, 2011
I bought these for a mix of fire road and technical trail running, but they don't have much cushioning so are best suited to shorter technical trail runs. I read a review somewhere about someone using these for an ultra, but not enough forefoot padding in my opinion (although i don't run ultras so maybe i just don't know...?) Nice grippy tread. I liked the plastic overlays on sides to lock down laces, but I have high insteps, so laces cut across top of foot making foot/toes cold and numb, even with high-instep lacing pattern. I sent them back, but they are probably fine if you don't have a high instep. Other than that, fit was great. Size was right on. I'm an 11 and fit well into size 11. Nice looking shoe too.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Great lightweight rugged trail runner
October 17, 2011
When I first received my Montrail's I was amazed at how light they were. I laced them up and took a jog around the house. I then noticed that the plastic at the bottom part of the tongue was pressed down and I could feel it rubbing against the top of my toes. Very annoying!! I ended up having to heat it up with blowdryer and shape it back so it cooled in place. Problem solved. That being said, I just got back from a 10 mile section of the AT, very wet very muddy, and these shoes held up very well.My pack weight was around 30lbs. I was a bit worried about rolling an ankle, but I never lost my grip. Yeah my feet got wet, but since they are so ventilated they dried out pretty fast. I love to roomy toe box. No blisters! If you are looking for lightweight trail runners with aggressive tread. Look no further.Pros: weight, tread, comfort, style, ventilation, Cons: rubber / plastic can rub toes

Since I am a woman with really big feet, this was the best option for me. I had ordered a half size larger than what I need, because most shoes have a small toebox, but it was not necessary with this shoe. This shoe came out of the box and onto the trail and needed no break in period! I love how it is light weight and the tread hugs the rocks. This is a great trail shoe.Pros: light weight, great tread, super comfortable
Best Item in Montrail!

This is so good shoes! I use running shoes when I go to long hiking. This is not used Gore-tex. But it is no problem, if there is water proof socks. Very light and a well-ventilated. Comfortable for me!!!Pros: light, good design
