I've been a competitive runner for many years. Sponsored by Nike in the late 1970's, I tested a number of running shoes. Later, I was a tester for New Balance. Based on my experience, here are my thoughts on this shoe. In order to be outstanding, Mountain Running shoes need to balance having a stable platform and substantial tread with light weight. It's a compromise that many manufacturers fail to achieve. Too often, mountain running shoes are glorified hiking shoes offering massive protection from rock gardens by using thick and very stiff plates and pillowy midsoles. Others have taken road running shoes and changed the tread, calling them hybrid shoes. These shoes are fine for running flat, smooth single track but are not useful for anything else.
With the Wildcat 3.0, I found that the platform was supportive, so much so that running over rocks was not a concern. I knew the shoes wouldn't wobble, the sole would stick to the rock and the toe guard would protect my big toes from the occasional toe stubs. In my area (Mt. Diablo, Clayton, California), it gets hot and dusty in the summer and cold and wet in the winter. I've worn these shoes for two seasons and the shoe breathed really well in the summer and dried out quickly after a soaking in the winter.
The insole was perfect for my arch, neither too big or flat like many manufacturers. The heel counter was snug without being binding or rubbing on my Achilles.
The plate provided good protection without sacrificing push off on the balls of my feet, making it easier to have a quick turnover and avoiding that plodding sensation that heavier trail shoes have.
After my runs, my quads might be aching, my breathing may be heavy, but my feet feel great.
I highly recommend these shoes.

Review for Wildcat 3.0
Sweet! Bought a pair of Wildcat 3.0s on a Thursday before heading up to the mountains that weekend. Wore them in the office on Friday to break in. Not necessary...instant, all-day comfort. Headed up to the mountains and took them on a 13 mile hike in the Gore Range on Saturday. Great traction and stability. I forgot my bike shoes so on Sunday I wore them for all day, epic mountain biking around Breckenridge. Of course they have their limitations but these are my new go-to shoes when I head to the mountains.

Review for WILDCAT 3.0
In Costa Rica we have a lot of mountains that have different composition, the WildCat 3.0 is magnificent, because it provides stability in the heel, no matter the type of terrain and their compensation is like trailer.

Review for WILDCAT 3.0
I ran my first marathon, a trail marathon, in these shoes last weekend and they were fantastic! Great cushioning! Awesome overall fit! And the wider toe-box is exactly what I needed. Highly recommended, especially if you are looking for a wider fit in a trail running shoe!
