Pearl Izumi’s Peak II is lightweight and durable with maximum traction and protection (it has a toe cap and a forefoot plate to ensure no roots or rocks puncture you), but stays true to its minimalist feel with a seamless upper and a comfortable sock liner. And with 360-degree lacing, you can get the tightest, glove-like feel so that your shoes will stay tailored to your foot throughout the entire run — no slippage or re-tying here.
