What to do when the footpath ends can be daunting for runners whose experience comes primarily from the road. This season, a brand-new trail shoe makes it easy to explore life off-road.
MEET THE DIVIDE
The Starting Point
The Divide has a fit similar to our road shoes but with a protective rock plate and the sticky traction of our trail shoes. It’s a perfect starting point for runners who’ve wanted to test out the trail scene but have yet to make the leap.
We created the Divide because we wanted to share our love of trails with all runners. All you need is a road less travelled and a will to explore.
Where to next?
Once you’ve gotten your feet wet (but hopefully not too wet), the next choice depends on which experience you want to focus on during your now regular trail runs.
Like the Divide but want more cushioning? The updated Caldera 4 has you covered.
The lightweight BioMoGo DNA midsole is stacked high to promote a steady stride over long distances whilst protecting against trail hazards. The Caldera 4 also has an adaptable grip with the thicker midsole and reconfigured outsole’s large grooves combined to respond and adapt to changing terrain while providing continuous comfort. Other features include the TrailTack sticky traction for different surfaces, a lightweight mesh upper for ventilation and drainage and a mudguard enhancing protection and durability in high-abrasion zones.
Craving more stability? Cascadia 14 is the natural next step.
The Pivot Post system works like a stabilising suspension system, connecting with the uneven ground underfoot to keep your foot level from landing to push-off. The Cascadia 14 also includes TrailTack rubber outsole offers traction on both wet and dry surfaces, BioMoGo DNA midsole which adapts to your stride and the new Cordura Mud Guard to protect against mud and other trail debris. The Cascadia model is also available in the Cascadia 14 GTX waterproof option.
Looking for a more nimble feel? The PureGrit 8 is ready and waiting.
Light, flexible and nimble, the PureGrit 8 is designed to help your feet instinctively read, process and react to the trail. Other features include the durable stretch-woven upper which quickly drains water and repels dirt and the Ballistic Rock Shield which protects your feet against surface hazards.
