Love My Wildcats!
I bought my first pair of Wildcats a few years ago and loved them. Yeah they are a bit heavy and no they aren't as flexible as some of my other trail shoes, but they fit my wide foot very well (I normally have to wear 2Es in road shoes), they are supportive and stable, and the cushioning protects my legs. I'm a bigger guy, so having a little more shoe sometimes helps. Did I mention the grip? These shoes have no business being as grippy as they are, especially on wet rock. They're Incredible.

I do have other trail shoes in my rotation that I enjoy, and I've gone periods of time when I'm not running Wildcats, but I always seem to come back to them, especially when I'm tired of trying new shoes and I just want something that works.

In short, Wildcats are my old reliable. They are an excellent value, they handle everything I've thrown at them and they've never left my feet or legs wishing for more. I love em!

Great shoe out of the box!
Thought the best way to try out my new Wildcats would be to go out on the rainiest day we've had in a while. Turns out these shoes are like wearing cats on your feet! They protected when they needed and gripped wet river rocks just enough to keep me upright. They are the best fitting shoe I've put on my feet in my 42 trips around the sun! I really enjoy good gear made with passion!

Best mountain tral shoe ever
I have been wearing Wildcats for years for running ultras. Tons of 50ks thru 100 milers in all conditions. I have never had a blister in these shoes, including a couple really hot races with multiple water crossings where my feet got repeatedly soaked. They breathe and vent incredibly well and are very comfortable. A tad heavier than some lightweight shoes, but the comfort, protection, and support are well worth the small tradeoff, particular on rough mountain courses. I don't see ever switching away from my wildcats!

Wore a pair of these on my John Muir Trail thru-hike and they were awesome! I suspect I will never go back to hiking shoes/boots for backpacking again!

Review for WILDCAT
For a bigger, beefier shoe I actually really like this shoe. The best part is the rubber, which to a rock climber is so valuable. It is better and stickier than the rubber on the exum pro in my opinion and FAR more comfortable. With this shoe I have no need for the exum pro.

Review for WILDCAT
I have had these shoes for over a year and have put alot of miles on them. I got them simply because they were on clearance at REI and I needed new trail shoes. I got them for doing adventure races and mountain biking, but then ended up training and running a half marathon in them. They are super comfortable and are still going after a year of normal and light trail use plus the13 weeks of road training and running. The inside of the shoe looks like new when my wifes asics were destroyed after the same wear. Can't go wrong with these.

I prefer a smaller drop, however these shoes are just to luxurious in terms of comfort. When I went to get new trail shoes the other day, these were the first and only ones i needed to try. They are the Miura of trail shoes.

great cushioning, but not stiff or too heavy; can still race ultras in these.
