“The team at Treksta has been hard at work building a range of exceptional products and their commitment to innovation has led to some incredible advancements in footwear – fit, traction, durability, and comfort,” said Peter Downing of What’s Up PR. “We at What’s Up PR look forward to ramping up the current momentum for Treksta as it continues to build its enthusiastic fan base of outdoor ‘funatics’. And as a trail runner, I’m truly excited about their latest shoes and what they offer the growing population of trail runners.”
