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.


The La Sportiva Raptor GTX, waterproofed with a Gore-Tex liner, is ideal for running in wet and muddy conditions. La Sportiva uses the sticky, rubber traction technology of its climbing shoes to guard against slippage, and the shoe's wrap-around toe bumper protects against rocks and roots. Bonus: The Raptor’s lacing harness stays strong even in the coldest temperatures—though we can't say the same for your muscles. ($155, sportiva.com)
