These versatile runners weave the rugged durability of a trail shoe into the comfort and flex of a road shoe—ideal for guys who run along a road to get to the promised land of the trail. Once you're off road, the water-repellent construction stops rain-soaked underbrush from getting your socks soggy and messing with your Zen, and the aggressive outsoles sinks their teeth into challenging terrain.

Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
|24 - 12mm|
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
