Head for the Hills

Choosing the right pair of trail running sneakers starts with considering the type of trail you most frequently encounter. Even the best suited trail shoes have a life expectancy of just 4 to 6 months for regular runners due to the excessive stresses placed on them by the rugged terrain, and so picking a pair adapted to your needs is indispensable to maximizing their wear life. Most trail running shoes are designed for relatively predictable surfaces such as asphalt, gravel paths and earthy hills, delivering added durability while still retaining much of the light weight and breathability as standard running shoes. Hardier models are built for natural trails that may not be as well defined, and include features such as dedicated toe guards, and protective plates to provide a shield from natural hazards such as roots, rocks, and thorns as well as outsoles with a widely spaced traction pattern to help keep dirt, rocks and other debris from becoming lodged in the treads. Runners who frequently take rougher trails will want to chose shoes with stiff builds to stabilize footfalls on uneven and variable surfaces such as rocky inclines and soft soil and enhanced ankle support to protect against debilitating rolls.
