Minimal, but not lacking.

The Pearl Izumi Men's EM Trail N 2 V2 Running Shoes have a minimalist feel, but still have plenty of cushioning for those long distance trail runs.Their 3D mesh uppers provide an intuitive and supportive feel, while their bonded toe caps protect the lightweight mesh material from sticks, roots, and rocks. Dynamic offset technology give the shoes a smooth feel as your feet move from heel to toe. At heel strike, the shoe has a drop of 4mm, but as your weight moves forward, the drop increases to 7.5mm—this eliminates forefoot slap and makes for a fast and fluid feel. The versatile carbon rubber soles are designed to tackle both steep ascents and technical descents with a multi-directional lug pattern. The ESS rock plates in the fore foot protects the bottom of your feet from all the trail sticks and rocks can throw at them.

  • 3D seamless upper
  • E:Motion midsole
  • Dynamic offset
  • 1:1 Energy Foam in the forefoot
  • ESS forefoot rock plate
  • Multi-directional carbon rubber sole

Love them! I have a more detailed review below, but wanted to add that. Great, perfectly neutral feel, roomy toe box. Great looking too ; )

Such a Solid Trail Runner

I love these shoes. The green and yellow edition make my third pair of PI N2's in a row. Each purchase I try another brand first - Hoka, Altra, Brooks... I seem to always end up returning the new brand and then returning to the PIs... I have very wide, bunioned feet which the PI N2s put up with, unlike most other brands. The grip is great until its not. Once you've worn out the soles, you'll start to slip in technical terrain, but this is only after a few hundred miles. I'm typically a size 10, but for these 10 1/2 is a better fit for me.
