I trail run appx 35 miles per week. I am a moderate underpronator, and these shoes do a fantastic job of stabilizing that. My plantar fac-itty-isis has cleared up completely and my feet feel great even after long runs. By far the best trail running shoes Ive ever had. Almost ready for my 3rd pair.

These are the best trail runners I've found for over pronators. They actually have enough stability to prevent mild to moderate over pronation, unlike most trail running shoes that are marketed as stability shoes. They give a good "spring" to every step too. I'm on my fourth pair of these and I've been able to get over 200 miles per pair with no discomfort whatsoever. I hope PI never quits making these! The only thing I don't like is the color scheme. I really wish they would tone them down some.

I was having problems with heel blisters from a pair of Pearl Izumi's that were two years old. I loved everything else about them. I received these 3-4 weeks ago and I am very impressed with the fit and the performance. I have no blisters and I love the look.

These are really comfortable and really breathable. Your feet aren't going to get too hot in these. They will let in a bit of dirt if it's dusty out but it's not bad and breathability is definitely worth the trade off. And they look so cool.

I'd also recommend: Inov-8

Was looking for a versatile casual/hiking/running shoe for travel so that I don't have to pack 8 pairs of shoes to cover every situation when I go somewhere. So I needed a decent stability running shoe with some traction that also wouldn't look too shabby with a pair of jeans. These seemed to fit the bill. First of all, the shoe feels pretty good. My feet tend to overpronate moderately due to weak arches and the shoe seems to offer some support in that department, though not quite as much as I would like (I also tried the road H2, which offered too much, to the point where it felt like my ankles were bending outward). So far I've really only hiked a bit in these--it was over rocky terrain and my feet felt good afterward. As far as looks, I really like the relatively minimalist design, especially when every other decent stability running out there appears to have been designed to look like robot vomit or something (e.g. Brooks). The neon color is a bit too much for me personally. I went for the orange (which in certain light is an almost a pink), mainly because the outlandishly bright toe on the other option would make me feel goofy but it was the lesser of two evils. I would have really preferred a more understated color option.
