The Lone Peak was Altra’s first Trail running shoe, and continues as its flagship trail shoe. The upper is a semi-open mesh with traditional overlays creating a full rand and providing shape, structure, and protection. Altra’s Footshaped® toe box accommodates a wide range of foot volumes.
The longstanding affiliation between adidas and the Boston Marathon is the inspiration for the adiZero Boston. Round 6 thoroughly dials in the features and performance of the shoe. The upper trades the open mesh of Round 5 for an engineered mesh with a semi-open weave in the forefoot and stiffer mesh from the saddle to the heel. A molded external heel counter supports the rearfoot.
TrekSta has shown that a consistent, single focus on trail performance can bring dividends to a brand. The new Alter Ego Star debuts with an upper of tightly woven mesh with 3D-printed overlays providing much of the upper’s support, and traditionally stitched overlays at the toe, heel, and from the eyestay to bolster the fit, especially in the forefoot.
The Nomad TR is the first new trail running shoe from Saucony since the introduction of the Peregrine four seasons ago. The Nomad offers several features that differentiate it from its off-road siblings and add value to Saucony’s trail line. The upper is closed mesh with no-sew overlays, Pro-Lock secures the midfoot, and a D-ring at the bottom of the laces facilitates the use of gaiters.
