Killer Cushion!
NEVER felt cushion like this. The rebound is superb, traction is excellent, and overall comfort is great. Makes the world feel like a marshmellow under your feet, while maintaining stability and traction somehow. Great for approaches, running, and any form of mountain play that requires miles and rugged terrain. The uppers are a little warm, so wear thin socks. Tongue could be better, maybe it will soften and break in with time. Huge running step forward in the category!

Moon Boots
It was like barefoot running with cushion! These shoes are the squishiest shoes I've ever worn. With so much cushion, you'd expect them to feel sloppy or unresponsive, but it was just the opposite. They fit great out of the box and I can't wait to explore my local trails with them.

Pricey, But Superb Trail Shoe
With narrow, low volume feet and a heel destroyed in a climbing accident, finding running shoes, actually any mountain sport footwear, is my quest for the holy grail. In 2011 I found the grail with the La Sportiva Electron. For me, best trail running shoe ever! When I found out the model was being discontinued, I purchased 2 additional pairs. Well, about a year ago the third pair died as a running shoe, although it remains an excellent, lightweight approach shoe. So the quest was on again and it was not a pleasant process. And then came the Unika. I have only had the shoe for a couple of months now, but it is a game changer. Excellent fit, superior impact control, outstanding traction and stability. While the price gave me pause, when the shoe hit the trail, it was immediately apparent that I made a good investment. Please keep this shoe in your line up for at least a decade!
