This will be my 4th Pair of Helios. They are light and very comfortable, almost like wearing nothing at all. I run street and trail races and have used them on short and Longer Marathon runs. Will never train in anything else!!


Great trail running shoe.\n\nI came to these as a replacement for my La Sportiva Wildcats. So far I absolutely love these shoes, and have worn them from distances of 50K to a 100M race. In each event I ran the entire distance without changing or replacing my shoes, and came out with no blisters or hot-spots on the feet.\n\nShoes are good for a trail runner with already good neutral form. These shoes have a very low heel to toe drop and are great if you are coming from wearing a lot of road neutral shoes. Firm sole with good lug pattern in soft and loose soil. Very breathable and light.\n\nI'm on my third pair and will probably stay with these until my gate changes or they don't make them anymore.\n\nMy only complaint is that they are very difficult to find unless you mail order.


I run on multiple surfaces but mostly small rocky packed dirt surfaces. The shoe has performed well. I am very happy with this shoe!
