Hoka One One Stin­son ATR 4

$190 Like all the Hoka One One shoes, there’s lots of sup­port and cush­ion­ing built into the trail-ori­ented Stin­son ATR 4, all in shoe that weighs just 266 g. Hoka shoes are a favourite for those who have knee is­sues, and the Stin­son ATR 4 will con­tinue that trend. This ver­sion of the Stin­son is wider than years past, pro­vid­ing lots of room in the toe box, mak­ing it a nice op­tion for re­ally long ef­forts. There are a num­ber of lugs in the durable out­sole so you’ll have lots of trac­tion no mat­ter what the ter­rain. This ag­gres­sive-look­ing shoe lives up to its looks on tough trails.

361 San­ti­ago

$160 The all-ter­rain San­ti­ago is de­signed to get you through run ef­forts of pretty much any dis­tance over roads or trails. Weigh­ing in at 320 g, there’s a 9 mm drop so you’ll find it easy to roll onto your toes for quicker ef­forts. There’s a breath­able air mesh up­per that, along with the Fitz-Rite mid­foot with its TPU over­lay, keeps your foot nice and se­cure as you work your way over rocks, logs and what­ever else your trail ad­ven­tures might put in your way. The rugged, tire-like out­sole pat­tern pro­vides lots of trac­tion, and you get out­stand­ing cush­ion­ing from the qu!kfoam in the mid­sole.

New Bal­ance Fresh Foam Kaymin GTX

$150 Whether you’re on the road or deep in the trails, the Fresh Foam Kaymin GTX will pro­vide lots of pro­tec­tion and cush­ion­ing in a 296 g pack­age. The com­fort­able up­per has a pro­tected toe area that helps pro­tect your feet on rougher ter­rain, while the Gore-Tex ma­te­rial keeps wa­ter out while still al­low­ing your feet to breath. The Fresh Foam mid­sole pro­vides lots of cush­ion­ing while the AT Tread used on the durable rub­ber out­sole is spe­cially de­signed to give you lots of trac­tion both on the roads and trails.

Asics GT-2000 6 Trail

$170 A trail ver­sion of Asics’ iconic GT-2000 road shoe, this ver­sa­tile shoe will get you through vir­tu­ally any run ef­fort whether you’re on the roads or trails. The FlyteFoam and Flu­idRide mid­sole pro­vides lots of light­weight cush­ion­ing and “bounce back,” and you get added cush­ion­ing from the gel tech­nol­ogy in both the fore- and rear­foot. The spe­cially de­signed DuoMax sup­port sys­tem pro­vides a quick-feel­ing ride in this 315 g shoe, so you’ll be able to keep your feet mov­ing quickly as you scam­per through your favourite trails.—KM
