4.4 out of 5
Great on the trail
June 18, 2013
I love these shoes. I was looking for a new pair of trail running shoes that would get me out on the trail near my house. I ordered these, took them out for a three mile run and came home and ordered another pair. They are great. The traction is just what I need in the sometimes muddy area and also on the slippery part when the trail gets the edges mowed. Perfect. I love them and it's prompted me to also by the road version.

Moving to Oregon has made me get off the pavement and on to the many trails that are around my house. I have light weight running shoes so was looking for same in a trail shoe but not ready for barefoot. The pearl izumi peak 2 is super light weight and has enough traction to tackle the steepest of trails. I did have to order a 1/2 size up, they ran a little small. They are well worth the purchase.Pros: light weightgreat traction, Cons: runs a little small

Great seamless shoe! Style and colors are nice too. Bought 2 pair in fact. Wore Nikes most of my life, but other than the Hirache years ago, no other brand fits like this and are as comfortable in the toes as these for running shoes when I race. Lightweight and work well on the trail if you can handle less support for a neutral running shoe. A co-worker of mine tried on a pair of different Pearl Izumi running shoes and compared to the other brands she tried, she likes them too. Never would have thought this would be the shoe I would buy after reading many reviews on running shoes. Try them and you might also like them. Even my PR has improved the last 2 races since I wore them!

I received my shoes in the mail and was disappointed to find that they did not run true to size as the description said. I ordered a half size bigger and found that I really needed a whole size bigger.Pros: great shoe, Cons: not true to size

I love how light weight and breathable these shoes are! I wasn't sure if they were going to provide enough support, but after trying them on a couple of runs, I'm hooked. Hooked enough to buy a second pair!
