"Amidst the new breed of more minimal running shoes, many runners are looking for a happy medium—a lighter shoe that doesn't compromise support and protection on technical trails. Across the board, our testers were thrilled by the TrekSta Sync's ability to bridge this gap and keep their feet happy for the long run," states Yitka Winn, associate editor of Trail Runner.

Built on the ultra-innovative NestFIT design, the Sync offers a lightweight yet structured upper and has a heel-to-toe differential of only 4mm. Anatomical sensor zones in the Independent Suspension Technology (IST) sole sense and respond to the terrain for a pure connection between the runner and the trail. With the industry-standard midsole differential currently 10-12mm, the Sync will provide an optimal transition towards more minimalist footwear for a majority of runners.

"It's obvious TrekSta did a lot of ground research and did not just follow the trends—leading to a fantastically innovative shoe," explains Jason Miller, a tester with Trail Runner.

What sets TrekSta apart from other footwear brands is the NestFIT design. Literally built around the human foot, TrekSta lasts follow the natural flow and design of the foot to provide a fit and support experience unlike any other.

Available now, the Sync will sell for a suggested retail price of $125. Visit www.TrekStaUSA.com for a complete list of dealers and retail locations.
