Montrail Women's Highlander Trail Running Shoe:
Agility is just as important as speed when you're racing across daunting natural terrain. Montrail's Women's Highlander pairs a sticky rubber trail running sole with a distinct low-rounded heel that gives you phenomenal control (Montrail suggests "barefoot-like") for navigating tight spaces and steep trails that double as natural avalanche chutes in the winter. Usually Montrail shoes tout wide toe boxes and other flex refinements, but the Women's Highlander running shoe features a fit that remains close to your foot with a low-volume toe and instep area. These race-inspired enhancements and a tight heel pocket keep you closer to terra firma so you can react with unprecedented responsiveness to unanticipated twists and unseen bumps in your path. Because the Women's Highlander is Montrail's lightest trail running shoe, you give up the weather protection found in XCR performance footwear; but you do enjoy a fast-draining mesh design that keeps your feet cool while minimizing grit penetration.
