How to choose your trail shoes?


Trail running is often practised on steep terrain and requires specific shoes adapted to the conditions of the course. Here are the basic characteristics of a good pair of trail running shoes:

Grip: probably the most important of all, the exceptional grip of trail running shoes allows runners to tackle all kinds of rough trails.

Protection: whether it is against shocks, cold or heat, shoes are basically designed to provide maximum protection for the feet. In a discipline that is generally practised in the wilderness like trail running, it is essential that this protection is more pronounced. Especially since it is the feet that play a major role. Your pairs should therefore be made from technical materials, guaranteeing excellent impact absorption and good temperature management.

Stability and support: with little things that can cause falls, such as stones and roots, the often sloping trail requires trainers with a strong support and stability. This will prevent slipping and muscle strain.

Waterproofing: mud, puddles, snow, rainfall, etc. to protect your feet from all these external elements, trail shoes must be perfectly waterproof.

Breathability: for a comfortable feeling at all times, your trail shoes should be made of technical materials that offer perfect ventilation.

Cushioning: for comfortable and efficient running, your shoes should also have excellent cushioning. That's why it's important to choose the right midsole and outsole. For those with a heeling stride, it is important to have the right drop.

Below, we have compiled a small inventory of the best Mizuno trail shoes and their special features.

Mizuno Hayate trail shoes


Dedicated to high-speed, short-distance nature runners, the Mizuno Hayate trail shoes are a perfect blend of lightness and performance. Designed for fast runners looking for stability, they are perfect for universal strides on trails or in urban areas. Including wave technology, they provide quality cushioning and excellent shock absorption. They also feature a soft midsole for added comfort without weighing you down. Strong, durable and long-lasting, they have flexible and well-ventilated uppers, ensuring that your feet are well ventilated and can move naturally throughout your efforts. As well as being comfortable and efficient, these trail trainers have thermo-glued socks that ensure a good fit and avoid any kind of friction that could be a source of discomfort. Available in men's and women's models, they are available at unbeatable prices in our online shop.

Mizuno Mujin trail shoes


On the other hand, for ultra-trail running, you should opt for pairs that are better suited to rough terrain, such as the Mizuno Mujin trail shoes. Particularly robust and durable, these very light running shoes are ideal for runners with universal strides over long distances. Featuring wave technology for exceptional cushioning and stability, they provide wearers with excellent energy transfer and an unparalleled feel for the ground. The soles are equipped with phenomenal grip studs, with great flexibility to adapt to every irregularity of the terrain, whether it is greasy or hard. Their sturdiness makes them the perfect shoes to tackle any trail with ease and finesse. Their mesh upper offers both solid support and perfect ventilation for optimal comfort. To improve the ease of wear, they have an ergonomic midsole in the interior. The midsole is soft and supple, offering extra support and preventing unpleasant friction. And to top it all off, they incorporate reinforcements on the toes to protect the toes from shocks and all sorts of infiltrations that can harm the feet.

Mizuno Daichi trail shoes


To alternate between these two types of running, we recommend the Daichi range. Characterised by multidirectional traction soles, they guarantee dynamic strides and exceptional support. Developed by Michelin, these soles easily follow every irregularity of a greasy, hard or wet ground to go from one type of track to another without constraint. Incorporating wave technology for responsive cushioning and maximum stability and the XtaRide process for fluid, stable and grippy strides, they are the ideal pair for all your outdoor runs. They have a solid mesh upper that provides optimal breathability and natural foot movement for a more comfortable, long-lasting feel.
