Altra King MT 2.0 Trail Running Shoe - Men's
The King MT 2 is a completely updated model for better grip, drainage, durability, and run performance. The upper is made of a hand tailored mesh and dynamically cut eye stays for flexibility and comfort. The new Vibram® MegaGrip™ Litebase outsole means you get the same grip with 40%+ reduction in thickness and 25%+ reduction in weight and allows for incredible flexibility resulting in the best running King yet. The Altra EGO™ midsole returns for that responsive feel underfoot.

I bought these on recommendation from another OCR runner. At first I wore them periodically to develop the foot strength since I was not used to a zero drop shoe. I love the wide toe box for trails. I trained hard for 10 weeks with these and recently did the Ultra in Los Olivos, CA. No issues with the shoe, tread is aggressive and I would recommend if you take the time to build your foot strength. I normally wear a 10.5, but based on other reviews for sizing I went with size 11. They fit perfectly. I am sold on the Altra zero drop and wide toe box and will be purchasing other models for the road and trail.
