The footwear from Craft has made a splash in a few short seasons, thanks to two factors: 1) They are innovative, and 2) They have the cachet to carry the interest piqued by their approach to product creation. The Endurance Trail is a new shoe to Craft’s trail line, which begins at ground level and builds its performance from the bottom up. The outersole is a trail tread of beveled lugs, toothy enough to bite into the trail, low profile enough to fly over the terrain. The upper is a breathable minimesh with a full rand of high frequency welded overlays. The midsole is pelletized polymer foam, configured with a 36mm stack height to the forefoot’s 27mm, with a 9mm drop. Overall, the Endurance Trail is about serious running, testament to the quality materials and versatility of its efficient design.
