The 361˚ Santiago is the latest shoe from this upstart brand to cross over to the trail, intended to mirror the success of its Neutral road shoes.
The upper is closed mesh with no-sew, welded overlays supporting the forefoot, a brawny stitched saddle and toecap that also features a high-friction surface to fend off trail debris. Additional fused overlays create a full rand for more protection. The midsole features a top layer of cushy Qu!ckfoam over a single-density EVA layer. The outersole is carbon rubber, with lugs which manage both trail and road well, proving its hybrid nature. The comfortable fit, effective traction, and protective ride add up to a quality trail performer.
Testers: “Good fit with plenty of protection. Traction was equal to trail and road, with good durability to boot.”
