Having had loads of success with trail running shoes, the City Trail range from Merrell is a light road shoe designed to be fast and responsive and promote a forward running motion and are not overly cushioned or bulky. They have a Quick lace System that keeps weight down to a minimum and less fiddly to get on or off. This shoe has SensiiFlex TM side panels to support the natural expansion of the foot and the Sensifit system cradles the foot giving great support as you move.
Thicker rubber on the footbed adds extra cushioning especially on hard terrain and the Contragrip outsole gives loads of traction. There is so much going on with this shoe, it should make town and city runs a breeze.
