Tackle Any Terrain With These Game-Changing Modular Trail Running Shoes

Jun 16, 2021

Trail running shoes are a tricky thing to get right because, unlike their road-going counterparts, the effectiveness of their traction can vary wildly depending on the terrain. In other words, what works for the smooth, buffed-out surfaces on the west coast will likely be of little help in and amongst the rooty singletrack you commonly find out east.

In an effort to address such intercoastal divides, SpeedLand has just announced the SL: PDX, an ultra-premium trail shoe that can be customized for a truly individual experience. Up top, it features a PerformFit Wrap made from a durable Dyneema knit and secured by a BOA Li2 dial platform. Offering an unprecedented combination of long-term durability and micro-adjustability, it promises to be a game-changing upper no matter the conditions. And that’s not all; underfoot, the SL: PDX comes with a Carbitex carbon plate and a Pebax SCF midsole that can both be removed based on the user’s preferences. What’s more, it rides on a Michelin textile web outsole with trimmable lugs for personalized traction. At $375, they’re certainly not cheap, but that’s the price you pay for this kind of innovation. Available now, deliveries of the SL: PDX will arrive this August.

Purchase: $375
