As previously mentioned, I’ll be fit and wear testing the forthcoming Montrail Streak. After a bit of fretting earlier in the week, my Streaks arrived yesterday afternoon. Last evening, I through them on for a slow 5 mile road run. They easily passed the “they don’t suck” test. That’s about as much feedback as I’d like to give after one short test run on the roads. I find that often the new shoes that I’ve got a bunch to say about out of the box are ones that don’t pan out as well in the end. In such cases, my initial reaction is often based on a gimmick or indulgence, such as tons of cushioning. I can say this, the Montrail Streak is not a gimmicky shoe and doesn’t over indulge the runner. To get away from what the Streak isn’t, it is a promising shoe that easily handles some road running. I look forward to kicking some rocks with them tomorrow morning in Park City.
