The World’s Toughest Trail Running Shoe Is Shockingly Affordable

You don’t include the word “masochist” in the name of a loafer, after all.


If you’re the type who craves adventurous cardio even when Mother Nature’s shaking her head, you need footwear that’s equally willing. Enter Columbia’s aptly named Mountain Masochist IV OutDry Extreme Trail Running Shoe. These innovative kicks boast loads of features designed to withstand inclement weather, and right now they’re 50 percent off, dropping the price to just $80.

So what exactly makes these shoes so formidable? Packed with proprietary properties, they’re basically performance galoshes: the OutDry shell with the easy-access zipper and soft-shell gaiter provide top-notch waterproofing. Beyond keeping your feet warm and dry, though, they also possess FluidFoam and FluidGuide, two technologies that combine to provide simultaneous cushioning and control. Finally, a full-length Gryptonite outsole, with sticky carbon rubber and multi-directional lugs, keeps you on your feet no matter how wet conditions get.

Bottom line: this discount is unbeatable, and these shoes are ready for anything. The only question left is… are you?
