Montrail makes a number of lightweight trail running shoes that are well suited for ultralight backpacking, and one of the most popular is the Hardrock. For good reason. They come in the classical “Montrail fit” (wide toe box, snug heel cup), as well as a wide version (EE width). I tested the wide version. The Hardrock may not be the absolute lightest trail shoe out there, but it’s an excellent balance of light weight, fit, comfort, support, and durability.
