Show Description

Burly trail runners with features that promote a natural running gait. The ample toe box allows your toes to spread and splay naturally during your foot strike and zero drop promotes a natural stride. A flexible stone guard sandwiched in the EVA midsole offers protection in gnarly terrain. Great for training, racing and a great option for runners with high-volume feet.

  • Quick-drying air mesh upper is reinforced with overlays for added protection.
  • Wide toe box accommodates natural spreading and splaying at the moment of foot strike.
  • Flexible StoneGuard in the midsole provides protection in rough terrain.
  • EVA midsole is lightweight and supportive.
  • Rubber outsole features 4mm lugs and unique directional lugs under the metatarsals that are designed to engage as you push off.
  • 4-point gaiter trap helps to secure a range of trail running gaiters.

Feel

'Minimal and natural' shoes offer low drop, lots of flex, and minimal cushioning. Most running shoes are 'Light and responsive' with medium cushioning and good energy return. 'Cushioned and floaty' shoes have maximum cushioning.

Light and responsive
Stability

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.

Neutral
Upper material Synthetic
Closure Lace-up
Heel-to-toe cushioning

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.

21-21mm
Drop

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.

0mm
Waterproof

Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
