Well that didnt take long.
The Streaks I ordered on Tuesday arrived today. They were half price so I already had a bargain, I just hoped and prayed they were as good as I had been led to believe. Seeing as I have had so many pairs of Montrails in the past I was quietly confident but what I was really interested to find out was were they better than my favourite CTCs?
Out of the box, they feel light and a quick check on the scales reveals that the combined weight is 620g. By comparison my CTCs which I think are pretty light anyway are 760g. Thumbs up so far. The sole looks well made and grippy, in fact with better ridgelines than my CTCs. The mesh uppers are flexible and light and the defining feature of most Montrails being the heel is well cushioned and really comfortable. I have tried walking in them in the house so far and they are really nice, light and like wearing slippers. All I have to do is try them outdoors. As soon as they have had a test drive, I’ll report back
