Break free of paved paths with the Bajada II.

Crush desert two track and high-mountain trails with the Montrail Men's Bajada II Trail Running Shoe. Put medium- to long-distance runs beneath your belt with a generous amount of cushioning and additional trail protection in the sole. Neutral support is ideal for runners who don't need stability support, and with a 10mm drop, heel striking runners will feel right at home in this shoe. The aggressive Gryptonite sole digs in when the grade gets steep on both the up and down. Meanwhile, the seamless midfoot frame makes for a smooth fit and feel that will carry you over the 20 mile mark without all the aches and pains.

Saving Grace

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

After going through my first two pairs of shoes, while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, my feet had grown 2 full sizes. Thanks to this my feet were to big for the shoe I had been wearing a La Sportiva Wildcat which lasted about 700 mi a pair (they don't come in a size over 13.5). Then I found these beauties and actually have my 2nd pair being overnighted today before starting Washington. These have been supremely comfortable and durable I got only one blister (walking through lava rock for 6mi) out of the past about 700mi with them. Supremely solid shoe and supremely lucky find.

Grippy Comfort

So far these have been comfortable and provide good support and traction. I have been wearing them for a few weeks now and initial impressions are good!

The Montrail Bajada has been my go to trail shoe for the last several seasons, particularly as a race shoes for ultras. I have worn it in everything from short training runs, treadmill intervals, to 50s and 100s. The sole is soft enough to give you a great feel for the trail but without letting each bump and rock to impact your feet. The cushioning is mid-weight compared to something like the Hokas or the Merrell Trail Gloves. I find it is just the right shoe for long trail efforts. The fit is good, I have a wide forefoot and the toe box is roomy while allowing enough room for swelling during long efforts. The laces are slightly off-set and keep the shoes snug on your feet. The lightweight uppers dry easily which is great for creek crossing or running through the rain. They also keep your feet cool after lots of miles. The only drawback is that the fabric is lightweight and this means a little bit less wear and tear. A season of training and racing several ultras will trash them. By the end of my seasons I usually have several holes where rocks have torn the fabric, but I do a little Krupicka-like modification and just lighten them up :) The tread is aggressive but not overly so. It will be a little slick in super deep mud, leaves, etc but excels on dry trails. It is perfect for rolling technical terrain. I find it grips well enough for my pace on steep descents. I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a solid shoe that is between ultra-light and ultra-max shoes.
