Treksta Unveils New Trail Running, Paddling and Approach Shoes for 2016


Vancouver, BC (June 18, 2015) – Award-winning outdoor footwear maker, Treksta, announced today that it is introducing a number of new trail running and outdoor-specific models at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, August 5-8, 2015 in Salt Lake City. Known for its pioneering technology; including its ground-breaking NestFIT™ last, function specific HyperGrip® outsole and award-winning Hands Free technology, Treksta has new models for the growing population of trail runners, paddlers and climbers. Treksta’s latest footwear, available in retail outlets in spring 2016, can be seen at OR in Booth #32155.

According to Treksta’s Sales Director, Rob McCurdy, the new models all continue Treksta’s essential mantra: Dare to be Different. “Treksta has always been and continues to be an innovator of footwear,” says McCurdy. “We are consistently on the forefront of new technology to make footwear better, and these latest innovations, like the new HyperFoam midsole in the Mega Wave running shoe, the Super Gum outsole in our Libero approach shoe and the WaterLock outsole in our Kisachie, continue to showcase that mindset.”

Treksta’s latest shoes all share the company’s signature NestFIT construction, an innovative system which unites last, insole, midsole and outsole to cradle the feet and support them in a fully natural position, ensuring long-term comfort and preventing muscle fatigue. Built from the scans of over 20,000 human feet, NestFIT produces an anatomically correct fitting shoe, which also incorporates a sulcus crest, a slight ridge at the back of the toes to support them in an altogether natural position for greater comfort and performance. Treksta continues to enhance its HyperGrip® WaterLock™ outsole for select models, which utilizes a special rubber compound and lug design for superior traction on wet surfaces. 

For the burgeoning group of dedicated trail runners, Treksta introduces two new models.


Mega Wave: The Mega Wave is a maximum cushioned, lightweight, breathable shoe for the long distance trail runner. The Mega Wave features Treksta’s new HyperFoam dual density midsole for a plush, cushioned ride, providing a full 23% superior cushioning and rebound, a rapid, tie-less lacing system with lace garage and the Hypergrip HGL 2-part outsole with IST (Independent Suspension Technology) for maximum grip and stability on varied terrain. MSRP: $125

Trail Wave: The Trail Wave is a lightweight performance trail running shoe for committed runners. The Hypergrip HGL outsole has excellent bite on loose trails and a soft, comfortable feel on pavement. Mesh uppers with synthetic ‘hide’ reinforcement provide added protection while allowing maximum breathability. Angular notches in the midsole heel promote a rounded flex of the midsole/outsole for an efficient, effortless stride. MSRP: $120


Libero: For the climber, Treksta’s new approach shoe, the Libero, packed with technical features for full performance, but also ideal for life away from the crag. The Libero’s Split Suede upper offers protection from sharp rocks and features Treksta’s T-Frame construction and powerful heel cup, which hold the foot securely in place while hiking and scrambling. The Hypergrip Super Gum sticky rubber outsole gives confidence when clambering over any type of rock. MSRP: $135


Kisachie: For the paddler and camper, Treksta introduces the new Kisachie, aptly referred to as the SUV of warm weather footwear. The Kisachie has an open concept upper, like a sandal, yet offers the stability, support, protection and traction of a trail shoe. With its new Hypergrip® WaterLock™ outsole for superior traction on wet surfaces, the Boa lacing system for easy and precise adjustment, and the Neoprene-like liner, the Kisachie is ideal for use on land or in the water. Hike, walk, canoe, SUP, kayak, camp, approach, cycle, garden, dress it up, dress it down. MSRP: $120
