The way you bounce around on the trail in the Dynafit Men's Pantera GTX Trail Running Shoe, you'll piss off the cotton-tail hoppers. The Gore-Tex membrane that lines this dirt-digging demon gives your foot guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection in case you (deliberately) land in the middle of muddy puddle. The bi-elastic mesh upper is both form-fitting and spacious in the toe box so your foot doesn't slip and your digits can wriggle and splay as you race down the mountain. EVA in the middle cushions your steps and sends you springing forward. The 8mm offset is neither a heel striker's nor minimalist's dream, yet should not offend runners of any ilk. The ESS Plate and Ballistic Bumper provide welcome protection for your paws, as the trails your tear over are technical, root-riddled, and lined with toe-grabbing boulders. On the bottom, the Vibram Mapping Compound sole uses three different materials to give you the security and confidence to speed over rain-slicked terrain with the same ease you race down dry, dusty trails.
