And Run to your favorite trail….


Here in Austin, Tx the trails can be a little rough which makes having a good trail shoe essential.  I’ve been running in both Pearl Izumi EM Trail M2v3 as well as the Trail N2.  I definitely have a favorite of the two, but both styles stand strong.

Why I Like LOVE This Shoe:

  • Spacious for my feet, yet full support all around
  • Excellent rock plate protection for pesky rocks that appear out of nowhere on the trail
  • Durable / not at all flimsy
  • Comfortable enough to want to wear them all the time everyday… but I’m trying to preserve them for the trails…. ahh what the heck!  I wear them anywhere!
