For those heart-pumping, peak-bagging, long-distance trail runs you're going to want the reliable performance of The North Face's Ultra Cardiac II Trail Running Shoe. It's made using premium materials, and delivers a smooth and supportive ride on the trail that'll help you hit the trail and fill up those running calendar miles. A Vibram Megagrip outsole ensure grippy traction whether you're pounding up dusty singletrack or darting over slick roots and rocks. Meanwhile, the midsole features soft EVA cushioning, as well as a more responsive compound in the forefoot to really help you push off when you've got nothing steep slopes ahead of you. The jacquard mesh upper, gusseted tongue, and cable lace anchors ensure a snug yet adaptive fit as you run, while a molded TPU toe cap protects the forefoot from unexpected stubs on hidden rocks. Tack on a heel stability system to keep your foot in its proper place and a FlashDry collar lining to keep your feet dry and cool on hot days, and you've got a trusty companion for all of your off-road excursions.
