We’re no stranger to innovative trail running shoes, with numerous brands implementing unique elements like carbon plates into their products. That said, it shouldn’t surprise anybody that another high-end take on the matter has made its way out of the woodwork, with Naked Sports Innovations’ first-ever Trail Racing Shoe.
By fully reimagining the ideal fit, feel, and performance aspect of athletic footwear, the lowkey label has unveiled what it touts as “the most advanced trail racing shoe ever.” The aptly-named T/r boasts a lace-free composition for a hand-in-glove fit and slip-on wearability. For added comfort and ankle support, it has a knitted cuff that keeps debris out of the way.
When it comes down to performance, the lightweight shoe sits on an EVA midsole for balanced support, as well as a Vibram outsole with megagrip rubber and traction lug tech for optimized traction. As we said earlier, the shoes have an internal carbon fiber plate designed with uneven terrain in mind, paving the way for unrivaled energy output to push you further no matter where you find yourself.
When it comes to high-quality materials and idealized performance, Naked Sports Innovations’ new release offers everything one would look for in a trail running shoe. Although the shoe is now available to pre-order for $290, it is slated to ship out beginning September 15.
