Helly Hansen is no stranger to the trail running category, but its latest off-road running shoe is nothing like the brand has ever put out before. Following the success of the more rugged Pace Interceptor, Helly Hansen introduces a more lightweight trail runner for Fall 2013, the Kenosha HT.

Designed to hold its own in the backcountry, the Kenosha HT is lined with a Hellytech Performance membrane that acts as a barrier against the elements. The waterproof, yet breathable, technology allows runners to do their thing regardless of weather conditions.

For protection against debris, the shoe features Helly Wear technology underfoot. Its premium EVA midsole offers solid cushioning, while a Helly Grip outsole with a lugged grip pattern is designed to tear up even some of the most punishing trails. Aesthetically, the Kenosha HT’s low-profile design and bold color offering should give it some street cred as well.
