Several testers made the Raptors their everyday trail shoe thanks to its comfortable, contoured fit, sufficient toe protection, breathable mesh upper and adequate cushioning. The moderately aggressive outsole and good heel-to-toe roll define this shoe's versatility.
With it's no-nonsense design, the Raptor delivers an all-purpose shoe for neutral runners with medium to wide feet.
