Great things come in lightweight, small packages and the Montrail Women’s Trans Alps F. K. T Trail Running Shoe is evidence of such. Built for tough, techincal terrain, the Trans Alps F. K. T combines lightweight design with all-mountain protection to ensure unimpeded support as you navigate rock-riddled steeps and hardpack descents alike. The Trans Alps F. K. T features a seamless mesh upper for unencumbered ventilation, while the rubberized overlays double as extra defense against trail-side obstacles and offer a semblance of torsional support. Not to mention, the protective toe and heel cap further safeguard you from errant roots or rocks. Additionally, a FluidFoam midsole attenuates shock and offers a lightweight, springy feel underfoot to promote smooth transitions, and the 8mm drop bolsters your ability to make the most of your stride, whether you’re moving up hill or slamming a descent. And naturally, no proverbial sundae would be complete without whipped cream and a cherry on top, the full-length TrailShield protects your foot from rough rocks and the 6mm lugs ensure ample rip and grip on the worst and most difficult of terrain.
