Montrail Women’s Rogue Fly

Montrail Rogue

Mon­trail is an indus­try leader in footwear because of their demon­strat­ed excel­lence design­ing shoes that enhance the bio­me­chan­ics of the foot, and the Mon­trail Women’s Rogue Fly is the cul­mi­na­tion of more than twen­ty years of run­ning experience.

This shoe is Montrail’s high­ly-suc­cess­ful ver­sion of a min­i­mal­ist run­ner with a rugged sole. They’ve sim­pli­fied the mesh upper so there are no fab­ric over­lays that tend to cre­ate synch points when laced snug­ly, and the ultra-breath­able mesh allows air to cir­cu­late through the shoe as you run which con­tributes to less blis­ter-induc­ing hot spots.

The mesh shaves the most over­all weight from the shoe, but so does the light, low pro­file mid­sole that is still rigid enough to offer slight prona­tion con­trol. This com­bi­na­tion of fea­tures achieves a bal­ance that suc­cess­ful­ly strad­dles the bound­ary between a min­i­mal­ist shoe and a trail run­ner. Out­side mag­a­zine rec­og­nized Montrail’s achieve­ment with this design by award­ing this shoe the 2012 Gear of the Year Award.
