The Aztec3 is Scott's light hiking shoe - but if it looks like a trail runner to you, that's no accident. The Aztec3 combines a run-able upper construction and eRide sole geometry with a more substantial and hike-able sole that copes with rough, rocky terrain and multi-day trips better than your average trail runner.
Scott's eRide midsole is shaped differently than most: the heel is less rounded and lower profile than most, there is no arch under the midfoot, and the rise at the toe is more pronounced. All of these design elements are intended to promote a smooth, fluid, efficient stride that propels runners from heel to forefoot as quickly as possible. Check out the diagram at left to see the stride in motion.
