Trail running shoes keep getting better and better. Thanks to advanced synthetics, textiles, and rubber, shoe companies are making lighter, more durable shoes that can help you transform your body as you run through woods, mountains, or fields.
The best trail running shoes of 2018 are making spring trails a treat for your feet. Trail running aficionados have their choice of trail running shoes, from quick and nimble to stout and protective. Across the board, these shoes are tougher, more breathable, and more resistant to the weather. They’re also built on soles with enhanced cushioning. The only dilemma: Which one is best for you?
Our editors tested some of the best new shoes available this season. Pick one (or more!) pairs, and your first spring adventures out on the trail will be everything you’re hoping for.
