Not bad, but not great

Not one of my favorite Montrail shoes to actually run in, but I love them for casual wear. In my opinion, they are fine for running on fireroads and regular road runs, but they were a little to cushy and bulky for any technical, off balanced trail conditions. However, I use mine all the time for casual use and love them for that. Montrail has better shoes to run in like the Rogue racer and the Masochist and Rock Ridges

Fairhaven sizing... How small /or large do Montrail's fit?
Fairhaven sizing... How small /or large do Montrail's fit? I wear a size 10 in road trainers with a thumbs width to the toe wall, and vary between 9.5 and 10 depending on the type of shoe. Thanks in advance!

Eric. I have found that the Fairhavens fit true to size. I am a 10 and have size 10 in a Fairhaven. I hope this info helps!

I absolutely love this sneaker. I was looking for a nice shoe to take out on the road as well as the trail and found great balance with these. If you're only going to encounter smoother trails and maybe a few hills, then these will be an awesome alternative that work great on the roads, too. If you need support and are going to be on a more rugged trail, then check out the Sabino and Mountain Masochist. Otherwise, give these a shot. Very "cushy" for a trail runner. . .
