When challenged to design a trail running shoe specifically for the modern adventurer, Teva spent four years developing and perfecting the TevaSphere, the only trail shoe you will ever need.

hiking, running, teva, teva tevasphere, tevasphere, tevasphere running shoes, trail hiking, trail running shoes, trail running sneakers, trail shoes, trail sneakers, Trails, zappos runningThe TevaSphere is perfect for the runner who faces a diverse range of trail and obstacles. From sandy shores to rocky terrain.

Its execution starts with the drastically different back heel. By replacing the squared off blocky heels of traditional running shoes with a more natural curved point of impact, the TevaSphere allows contact to the ground in various angles.

The unique “pods” located on either side of the arches give pinpoint support when you need it most. TevaSphere brings a harmonious balance between the freedom of a minimalist shoe with a supportive platform to avoid lower leg injuries and fatigue.

To learn more about the amazing technology and thoughtfulness in design of what Teva deems “the world’s most versatile trail shoe”, check out the informative video below!

Now see for yourself why the TevaSphere will eliminate the need to fumble through a closet full of shoes on your next trail run. Experience what four years of trial and error and extensive research by the Teva team feels like out there on the trail where it matters most!

New Brand Spotlight: Newton Running

The inspiration behind Newton Running®, as well the brand’s name, was Sir Isaac Newton and his third law of motion, which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

A leader in natural running, Newton believes that maintaining natural running form without being barefoot requires a shoe that allows the foot to connect with the ground as though it is shoeless. Any geometric change interferes with the natural gait, which is why every shoe is built on a level platform that mimics the foot’s natural geometry. Unhindered, flexible movement is essential, as long as the shoe is still protective enough to prevent injury over harsh terrain.

So who are Newton running shoes for? They are for runners who are already mid-foot or forefoot strikers, as well as those who are working on transitioning from heel striking to a more natural running form.

Slip into a Newton running shoe and experience the science of motion.

New Brand Spotlight: Hoka One One

hoka one one, running,trail running,outdoor running,cushioned trail runners,men's running shoes,women's running shoes,zappos running,new brand spotlightIn 2009, adventure racers Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud envisioned a new type of shoe. Dedication brought their dream to life and Hoka One One™ (pronounced: Ho ⋅ ká – Ò ⋅ né – Ò ⋅ né ) was born.

Driven by a trending popularity in outdoor recreation, namely trail running, they noticed that athletes are becoming increasingly faster, and that variation in performance is most noticeable during descents. Downhill running is often synonymous with fatigue, impact and muscle strain. Inspired, Jean-Luc and Nicolas responded by creating an innovative running shoe that focuses on freedom and enjoyment.

Each Hoka One One shoe is built upon a maximally cushioned midsole that offers superior protection, comfort and propulsion. The characteristic rocker geometry promotes optimally efficient running mechanics. Oversized outsoles, which have 50% more surface area than the average running shoe, ensure maximum stability, traction and connection with the ground. Being 15% lighter than most other running shoes, Hoka One One makes running uphill as much fun as running downhill, with much less body fatigue.
