Thanks!

They are the best trail shoes ever made! Well, maybe not, but they are so fun and light, and surprisingly cushy for how insanely-light they are. Like wearing grippy slippers in the woods.

They take a bit of getting used to. They're a challenge to learn how to put on (because of the sock-like fit), and the heel is almost nonexistent (so they feel strange when you first start using them), but so elven.

Did I mention they are light? They are so light! It's absolutely bizarre! Here's an insanely-detailed review.

Be warned that Salomon has many similar versions of this shoe. You want the Salomon S-Lab Pulsar SG (or "2 SG"). The 2 SGs are at Running Warehouse (as I type this) on sale ... still not cheap.

Sweet!!! Thanks for the deets. “ Grippy slippers in the woods “ Sounds pretty great to me. Elven, eh? You’ve pretty much cornered the market on that!

However, I’m trying what I Already know through the “Amazon try before you buy” with the Solomon speed cross fives. These shoes you’re mentioning are definitely worth looking into - The ones on sale Through the warehouse are out of my size, 7.5.
