Breathable Mesh Upper
The upper of the Trailtalon 290 features a breathable mesh upper that encases your foot in breathable comfort. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the entire upper of the shoes providing a constant supply of cool, fresh air whilst at the same pushing out hot, muggy air that lays within the shoes during heavy exertion. In addition, built around the natural anatomy of the foot, the next generation adapterfit met-cradle adapts to the natural movement and swelling of the foot on longer runs. This provides superb comfort and a locked in fit.
A rubber toe bumper protects the toes from sharp rocks and stones, while a gusseted tongue prevents debris from entering the shoe. Further protection comes from on the shoe gaiter hooks that offer a more secure attachment system that allows you to attach an all terrain gaiter to the shoe (sold separately).Two-Piece Powerflow Midsole
The Powerflow midsole delivers 10% better shock absorption and 15% better energy return than standard midsole units. The Powerflow works by absorbing the energy caused by shock and impact forces through the heel strike phase of the gait cycle. At this point, the midsole unit transfers the harnessed energy to the forefoot area where it pushes you off into your next step providing exceptional energy return.
