First Run in the Pearl Izumi Seek Trail Shoe

To much snow here in NH for the trails. Ran with the Seek on the roads. Superb upper fit,like a slipper. I can feel what the front of my foot is up to over the terrain, yet I am very well supported in the midfoot. I am a heavy heel striker and found the combination of the crash pad and frame supported firmly yet with great cushioning, unusual as most with most shoes it is either firm support or pillow cushion. Felt like the shoe was guiding me forward, faster, and with some sense of actually having feet, instead of the usual feeling of a cushionned board on my feet.

The Float is the road cousin of the Seek.
