|My Shoe Quiver Comprised of Mostly Montrails|
I first experienced the Rogue Racer when I borrowed a test pair from my friend Christian in early 2011. One run in the Rogue Racers and I knew this was my shoe. I ran eight races in 2011, ranging from 50K to 100 miles, technical mountain terrain to running tracks – all in the Rogue Racers. In each of the races I was able to place in the top three. I partly credit my good year to shoes that fit well, were extremely nimble and responsive, never caused a blister, and were light. I often referred to my Rogue Racers as my “happy shoes.”
When I heard that Montrail was bringing out a shoe (Rogue Fly) that was essentially the Rogue Racer with a new upper and was more than an ounce lighter (7.6 oz vs. 8.8 oz), I couldn’t wait to give them a try. The Rogue Flys did not disappoint.
