Inov-8 X-Talon 2122 of 10
Other than the fact that these shoes look incredibly legit, the latest in the X-Talon series is the lightest version yet. An interchangeable footbed offers customized comfort and sensitivity, and "talon-like" rubber outsoles grip whatever terrain you encounter during a race. Buy them for men or women.

Salomon refers to the Speedcross 3 as its "iconic running shoe brought to the trail," which should assure you it's comfortable. With an anti-debris mesh and mudguard, the Speedcross 3 will keep the elements away from your feet. Word on the street is they run small, so we recommend ordering a half size larger. Buy them for men or women.

Vibram FiveFingers Spyridon LS7 of 10
For minimalist runners, the Spyridon LS takes "barefoot running" to the trails. As Vibram's first trail running model, this shoe offers protection on rugged surfaces while allowing better barefoot dynamics. Molded nylon mesh in the midsole acts as a "rock block" that disperses shock across a wide area. Buy them for men or women.
