Whether you’re climbing slick muddy inclines, trekking through muddy creeks or running over jagged rocks, the Vibram Trek Ascent minimalist running shoe can easily handle serious mileage on serious off-road terrain! The Trek Ascent sits on a low-riding zero-drop outsole that’s thick enough to provide a plush smooth ride, without feeling bulky, on technical trails with loose debris, while thin enough to ensure a balanced and effective forefoot strike landing during running. In fact, the lightness of the shoe gives you a little more ignition fluid, so your feet pop off the ground when mowing through extreme back-country trails. Another handy feature of the shoe is its high-top inspired collar design intended for keeping out the elements. Read the full review on the best zero drop trail running shoes here!
BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
