Last summer we featured the Helly Hansen Pace Trail HTXP as one of the best shoes for trail running. Now, as we move toward warmer months (albeit slowly), the brand has unveiled an upgraded version of the sneaker, the HH Pace Interceptor, to conquer the summer trail.

Available in both a dark and light color palette, the HH Pace Interceptor is a lighter, more streamlined version of the Pace Trail. The shoe features HellyTech Performance waterproof lining that keeps your feet dry in all weather conditions. Given its trail runner status, the shoe features ample reinforcement from heel to toe for protection against the rugged off road trail.

As far as cushioning is concerned, the Pace Interceptor features a C-Zone cushioning unit under the heel and forefoot for shock absorption, and an overall smooth ride. The sneaker’s built-in Roll Cage provides added support, holding the midfoot securely in place.
