When it comes to running off the road, your feet can absorb a pounding—sometimes even a bruising, especially if your path is riddled with rocks.
SOLUTION SHOE: The North Face Double-Track is a trail runner that provides lightweight stability and protects your soles from sharp rocks or twigs, thanks to layers of molding and a SnakePlate—that is, a protective plate made of a flexible plastic that can't be punctured by sharp rocks. Note: The Double-Track is built for overpronators, so if you’re a neutral runner who wants similar protection, try The North Face's Single-Track shoe instead. ($120, thenorthface.com)
