The wardrobe staple you didn’t know you needed

The wardrobe staple you didn’t know you needed

Whether you run, hike, or walk, trail shoes are an incredibly versatile wardrobe essential—especially for the summertime adventures ahead.

If you are one of the many reaping the rewards of trail running—compared to road running, it allows you to exercise more muscle groups, incur less impact, and experience lower stress levels—it’s time to invest in a good trail shoe. You’ll appreciate the added grip, agility, protection, and durability.

A trail shoe also performs beautifully if light hiking and camping are more your speed. Hot summer weather means local trails are dry and hard-packed. A well cushioned and lightweight trail shoe offers a welcome alternative to bulky hiking boots.

For those travelling overseas, packing multipurpose footwear saves valuable space and weight in luggage. Trail shoes are perfect for a walking tour through cobbled streets, a bike ride in the countryside, or a village-to-village hike. Your feet will be cool and protected, and you’ll still have room in your suitcase for souvenirs!

So whether you enjoy exploring BC’s many parks and hiking trails, or are planning a trip abroad, consider adding a trail shoe to your wardrobe for the ultimate in comfort, security, and versatility. Cowichan Valley Running carries a wide range of options from brands like La Sportiva, Inov-8, ASICS, and more! And until July 6, you can save 10% on any regular price trail shoe. Stop in and feel the difference a trail shoe makes.
