Dynafit Pantera

Runners who prefer cushioning and protection for long mountain runs will love these trail runners.

Brand: Dynafit

Model: Pantera


Specs

Weight

1lbs. 8oz.

Cushion

A layer of blown rubber, which is lighter and more flexible than traditional rubber, tops the full-length EVA midsole, making the shoe soft underfoot. We could go all-out on hard-packed trails.

Traction

The Vibram outsole gripped wet rocks and braked well in loose dirt, but the narrow, rectangular lugs slipped in mud.

Support

A hard plastic shank runs from the middle of the arch to just below the toes, creating a stiff, supportive platform.

Protection

A dual-density midsole is softer facing the foot and firmer toward the outsole. That, combined with the plastic forefoot plate, gave us plenty of protection on the nastiest trails in California’s Trinity Alps.
