Dynafit Feline SL
290g (men's UK 7) £135
With its rigid structure and overall look, the Dynafit Feline SL appears at first glance to be a beast of a shoe. However, at 290g, it's surprisingly light and comfortable. Our tester was able to wear them straight out of the box on a seven-mile road and trail run without any issues. However, this shoe is designed for use on rough terrain in the mountains and serious off-roaders won't be disappointed, thanks to the 'ballistic' bumpers in the heel and toe and a multipad midsole to reduce the effect of impact. We love the easy lacing system, plus the Vibram outsole, which offers a sturdy grip. The shoe also has an 8mm drop.
Verdict: The comfort of a road shoe with the grip of a trail shoe.
