Dynafit’s Pantera is somewhat of a throwback, updating the classic heavy-duty trail runners of years past. At 12 oz., the Pantera is the heaviest shoe we reviewed and firmly in the bulletproof category. We like that in a trail runner. We also like that this is a durable shoe that laughs at scree fields, rooted ruts, and miles of single-track abuse, and will last several seasons for most runners, which helps mitigate its relatively high price. Sizing is snug in the midfoot, but expansive in the toe box. With a tough toe bumper, Vibram outsole, and serious cushioning underfoot, the Pantera is a stable downhiller, ready to take you places. These are true trail-running kicks, not pavement-pounders, down to the metal eyelets.
