BENEFITS OF A TRAIL RUNNING SHOE


DURABILITY - The biggest difference between trail running shoes and regular running shoes is durability. With thicker, more aggressive treads and soles, trail shoes are built to protect the foot and withstand tougher terrain while durable overlays resist abrasions that might occur from rocks and roots.

TRACTION
- Trail shoes are equipped with uphill and downhill tread to give you grip in either direction. Rugged outsoles allow you to grip the dirt and rocky surfaces you're stepping on, improving traction on uneven terrain or slippery surfaces.


PROTECTION
- Our trail shoes have an inbuilt rock plate for underfoot protection from rocks and other objects. If your off-road running takes you through mud, streams and rocky rivers you'll benefit from trail shoes with GORE-TEX (GTX) technology, a breathable and protective coating designed to help keep your feet dry.
