Helly Hansen, having rolled out numerous high profile models over the years, is no stranger to the world of trail running. But with the introduction of its all-new Kenosha HT trail runner for Fall 2013, the brand is on a serious mission to redefine how off-road sneakers are designed. Aside from its eye-catching aesthetics, the Kenosha HT is known for its beastly performance potential on the trail. The low-profile trail runner features a Helly Tech Performance waterproof membrane for all-weather use, as well as HellyWear technology in both the upper and outsole for durability. This shoe isn’t just designed to take you to the backcountry, it’s designed to help bring you back. The Kenosha’s premium EVA midsole offers proper impact protection on rugged terrain, while its C-Zone cushioning technology offers just the right amount of support and padding underfoot. Like many of Helly Hansen’s performance footwear offerings, the Kenosha is loaded with a Helly Grip outsole for traction on virtually any type of terrain.
