The latest addition to Under Armor’s lineup of running gear, dubbed the Horizon Trail Run Footwear collection, looks to shake up the established world of outdoor hiking equipment. The series acts as the most recent development for Under Armor’s established reputation as a technical innovator in the athletic arena.
These shoes, in particular, known as the Horizon FTK (Fastest Known Time), were designed specifically to enhance trail speed. They feature ESS rock plates, durable welded overlays, internal fit systems, and Michelin outsole compounds among other perks for a fit and level of comfort unforeseen with their earlier releases. They’re built for agility and distance, provide protection against stone bruising, and host a ripstop upper and a high-density foam tongue for a one-of-a-kind fit. And for the competitive trail runner especially, they’ll be pleased to know the Horizon FKT’s lacing extends further down the vamp to assist in precise tuning on those longer treks. From the looks of the first photo release, they appear to provide quite the aesthetic in addition to their functionality as well. Look for their release in Spring 2017 with an MSRP starting at $130.
