They came in just in time for a virtual race. I put them on and ran 12 k on ice and show packed trail. Did not slip once and kept my road pace. Extremely comfortable, light and fast. I will no longer be tentative on ice.
I love this shoes. From the moment I opened the box I could notice the grip this shoes pack and on the trails they have never let me down so far. They were a bit loose on the collar for my taste, but I quickly got used to them. I highly recommend this shoe and this brand.
Can't say anything besides, this shoe is amazing! Wet wood to the mud even the ice. This shoe has got it covered. Never fear the zero is the hero!
Previously having owned a pair of XTRM I thought I would not be able to find a good Contender but after wearing the Maxx I have changed my opinion and prefer wearing them more often. The fit and cushioning of the shoe paired with the secure fit are unbeatable
This is my second pair of MAXs. This is my favourite trail shoe, as the fit and feel are the best. I just enjoy running in them.
Amazing fit and perfect for winter running
As always fast shipping even being in hawaii
I was a wee bit skeptical buying a pair of shoes online having no prior experience with them. When I took the Xero out of the box, I thought "there's no way this is going to work." It looked narrow and unforgiving. I was wrong on both accounts! My foot slipped right in and was so comfortable. My first run (~4 miles) was on a trail that was snow-covered ice. Great grip. I was confident throughout. And the comfort - wow! It felt like a custom-made pair of shoes! I'm very happy with this purchase.
My husband and I wore our new Maxx’s on a tough 16 mile hike the first time we put them on and they were awesome!
Best shoes ever! I feel so fast in them and they truly have the best grip on the planet!
Best OCR/trail shoe I’ve run on. If you want to have speed, grip, and security this is the shoe. Foot bed is a little narrow for some people but as mine wore in there was no issue. I also found that the feedback through the baseplate (feel of the surface) transfers very well so I have the ability to correct and prevent injury.
Love these shoes! I take them through a beating while I’m mountain running, and they hold up incredibly well all around!!
These shoes are amazing for super rocky conditions. You don’t even feel the rocks underneath you as you’re running. I was able to wear these straight out of the box and do a 10 mile race with no issues. Didn’t even have to break them in. I found my new favorite trail shoe for where I live.
Awesome product. Took second place in a 10 mile trail race, second run in these! Would absolutely recommend!
Once again fast delivery for great quality shoes. Thank you

Simply the Best!
This is my all-time favorite shoe. I've used this shoe to win Trail Running races, Spartan races and set FKTs. It's grip, lightweight and groundfeel is unmatched.
The fit is "performance", meaning when you are shredding a technical downhill, your foot won't move around at all. If you like a bit bigger toe box, either size up, or look at the MAXx.
I've run in every brand of shoe and this one out performs them in nearly every scenario.

Great shoe for rocky terrain
I love this shoe for long runs on technical terrain. The shoe grips the foot tightly so it's not moving around when running on rocks, and the grip never slides on anything!
They hold amazingly well over time - after 500 miles, I still have lugs left and the shoe still has the same integrity of the upper as on day 1.
Great for OCR racing as well, as the water drains completely in a matter of seconds. Stability and cushion are great for those longer journeys...

A versatile mountain shoe!
I use this shoe as my "everyday" trainer. I primarily run and train on the trails and peaks of the High Rockies in Colorado.
I feel like these shoes were built for the mountains as they handle technical terrain exceptionally well. That being said, I even use these shoes for workouts on non-techy dirt roads/trails. I love the ability this shoe has to handle anything I throw at it. Incredibly durable, lightweight, protective, and stable, these shoes will go the distance in any terrain!
