Runs BigIf I had tried on these MM IV before I threw the box away, which is something I haven't had to do in the ten years or so of wearing Mountain Masochist shoes, I would have sent them back. But, alas, I own two pair and I will take the Lord's name in vain every morning for six months as I walk in shoes that are too big.
I think the shoe itself is OK, but the sizing is the overwhelming concern.

Really great shoeRan in the Masochist for years. I did not like what Columbia initially did with the shoe after they bought Montrail, so stopped running in the Masochist. I decided to give this iteration a try and I'm very happy with this shoe. The fit is great and I love the wide toebox, so necessary in multi-hour trail runs when your foot expands. The quick lacing system works well and doesn't loosen. It makes getting in and out of the shoe a breeze. The upper is designed to limit snags and is breathable. The missile has the same full length protection plate and lugged sole of past Masochists. With the low to the ground profile, great toebox flex and medial stability, Columbia has really done a fantastic job with this shoe. And ,no, I don't work for them! But,I will be making this my goto trial shoe. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
