You’re adventurous — a trailblazer who isn’t afraid to eliminate boundaries. But when you head into the unknown, you need a shoe you can depend on. At Eastbay, we’re prepared with a mountainous supply of trail running shoes designed to get you on the trail and out of rocky situations.
Good grip and foot protection are key elements when choosing a trail-running shoe. Whether you’re combating rugged terrain or traversing a smoother path, specially designed features like deeper lugs and multidirectional tread patterns on the outsole improve your stability and traction, while foot deflection plates shield your feet from impact. Extra protection over the toe box is important for protecting against large debris on rocky terrain. Water protection and a gusseted tongue are essential to keep you moving in wet conditions. In addition, your foot typically sits slightly lower to the ground in a trail running shoe for added stability and responsiveness.
These are just a few benefits of choosing a trail-running shoe over a traditional running shoe. For more detailed information, take a look at some individual styles within our massive selection. We carry awesome trail-running shoes from Nike, adidas, ASICS, Brooks, New Balance, Salomon, The North Face, and Under Armour. Don’t wait — start eliminating boundaries today!
