This running shoe has a grooved sticky rubber outsole that grips the trail, keeping your foot -- no matter what its shape -- steady on loose twigs and gravel. It also features a gotta-love-it blister-proof lining and super-cushioned heel.

Our tester says: "The 840s transitioned really well from dirt and grass to rockier trails and were amazingly lightweight, which I loved." -- Nancy Kleinrock, 48, from Trumansburg, New York, averages 75 to 85 miles a week on New York's Finger Lakes Trail.
