Road to Trail

Want a shoe that handles any terrain? Then one of these might be just the job. They may not have quite enough grip or protection for the gnarliest trails but they do a pretty good job everywhere.

Altra Outroad:

Nice natural option for any terrain

Craft CTM Ultra 3:

Great road shoe in its own right. More for light trails and gravel rather than North coast antics but nice road focused option.

Craft Nordlite Ultra:

Designed for long distance multi terrain training and racing. Loads of cushion and a great rocker to reduce fatigue over the long haul.

HOKA Challenger 7 ATR:

Another great shoe from Hoka. Oodles of comfort in an all terrain package that will handle tarmac and hard packed trails well.

Salomon Ultra Glide 2:

Technically a trail shoe but not too aggressive lug profile and loads of cushioning mean this make a great shoe to take you where ever the adventure goes.

Inov8 Parkclaw G280:

Nice option if you prefer to be a little closer to the ground. Graphene outsole makes this one built to last.
