10 Best Trail Running Shoes

Don't let the trail trip you up. Here are fall's newest trail runners—from minimalist designs to heavy duty versions—to guard your feet against roots and rocks.


If you’re new to the barefoot movement, try Merrell's Mix Master 2. Its thinner midsole will keep your foot low to the ground but won’t compromise on the valuable stability you're used to from normally structured shoes. What's more: There's extra cushion in the heel, added forefoot shock absorption pads for running on varied terrain, a mesh upper that lets the heat and stank out, and a bellows tongue to keep rocks from slipping into your shoes.
