The Montrail Bajada was love at first sight. As a long-time Montrail wear tester, I first tested this shoe back in December 2010. It only took me a run or two before I texted Montrail President Topher Gaylord that he had the Cascadia killer on his hands. Six months later (after begging Montrail not to make me return the shoes), I wore the Bajada for the final 80 miles of the 2011 Western States 100. It was my go-to training and racing shoe last spring. I suspect I’ll be wearing it a great deal again once Park City’s trails dry out this spring.
The Bajadais a tremendous jack-of-all-trades. It’s got outstanding roll and weighs a svelte 10 ounces, while providing plenty of support as well as a 10mm heel-to-toe drop, both of which I love in an ultramarathon shoe. I’ve already gushed about this shoe in iRunFar’s full Montrail Bajada review.
