BUILT FOR SPEED
A teardrop shape and snappy return make these lightweight shoes a good pick for midwinter running or aerobic hikers. An extra toe claw delivers more power during quick-stepping toe-offs, and the easy-ratcheting binding feels stable in running shoes or low-profile boots. The frame is a magnesium alloy, which delivers impressive strength with minimal weight. Our main concerns: The deck threw snow up testers’ backs, and the lightweight aluminum crampons aren’t as durable as steel. Casual hikers will prefer a more full-featured shoe with additional float. 1.7 lbs, 27”; crescentmoonsnowshoes.com
