Hi-Tec V Lite Trail Eruption 2009

The Hi-Tec V Lite Trail Eruption multi-activity shoe weighs 812g (pair, size 11); good cushioning for road and hard tracks; good grip for tracks; very breathable upper ideal for running; good heel support; good sole flex for running. But a deeper lug pattern would be better for mud; non-runners would benefit from then being waterproof; stiffer sole better for climbers; not a true multi-activity shoe.

Verdict: The Hi-Tec V Lite Trail Eruption is an excellent running shoe for on and off road on good tracks.
