Show Description

Tackle rocky trails with confidence. The TRAILROC 285 is built to handle the hard-packed trails, boulder fields and runnable slabs you'll encounter on your most adventurous runs. A rubber toecap, flexible rock plate and external heel counter guard you from impacts at all angles, and the tri-density outsole uses firmer rubber in the heel for additional protection. Low-profile lugs provide the perfect balance of grip and speed on firm surfaces.

  • Seamless breathable upper.
  • Cushioning EVA midsole.
  • External heel counter provides heel-hold and stability.
  • Robust toe cap protects toes from impacts with rocks and debris.
  • Dynamic, flexible rock plate offers protection from rocks without compromising foot flex.
  • Multi-density rubber outsole.
  • Low-profile, closely spaced lugs give good grip and help disperse impacts from footstrike.

Ideal for Trail running

'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

Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize over pronation, where the foot tends to roll inward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.

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.


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.
