Columbia Sportswear Men’s Ravenous Trail Running Shoes: Gear Review

[“Reviewing the Stuff Columbia Sent Over” series: Click here to read more.]

It’s Spring again and I’ve finally had a chance to take my Columbia Ravenous trail runners outside.  I’ve worn these shoes on road and light trail runs and on a treadmill in the winter.  I definitely recommend these running shoes and give them an overall rating of 4.5/5 – see my review below:

Look:  The design is okay.  It’s sleek and simple, but some of the graphics are off.  There are four color combos to choose from, which you can check out here3/5

Weight:  I was pleasantly surprised when I put these on my feet for the first time.  Cross trainers and trail running shoes can be a bit heavy and bulky, but the Ravenous, at 12 oz, have the weight of a typical running shoe.  5/5

Feel:  The padding on the heel is very soft, which I prefer.  It’s cushy and molds quickly to your feet, and provides excellent support when you’re running.  Plenty of room for the toes.  True to size.  Feels great on your first wear!  5/5

Breathability:  The shoe is mostly composed of mesh fabric, which provides excellent ventilation for your feet.  4/5

Overall:  I’m very impressed with Columbia’s Ravenous Trail Running Shoes.  I’ve worn them on roads, light trails and treadmills alike.  They are comfortable and light; they provide excellent heel support; and they keep your feet ventilated and dry.  I highly recommend these Trail Runners.  4.5/5
