If, like us, you’ve been waiting long and hard for Newton Running to roll out a trail running shoe, there’s good news: the wait is finally over.
In Fall 2013, Newton will take everything it knows about road racing—and it seems to know a lot—and apply it to the trail with the introduction of the all-new BoCo AT trail runner.
Named after the brand’s hometown of Boulder, Colorado, and inspired by the famous trails in the area, the BoCo AT features the same Action/Reaction impact-absorbing forefoot technology that’s made Newton running shoes so popular over the years. Like with any solid trail runner, the BoCo AT features an aggressive tread pattern on the outsole designed for all-terrain use. Multi-directional lugs throughout offer grip on uneven terrain, while the four-lug cushioning technology in the forefoot is set in place for impact-zone protection.
For protection against debris and trail hazards, the BoCo AT features a durable rubber toe bumper, as well as a closed-mesh upper, to keep everything out. The shoe’s upper features a laser-perforated synthetic suede midfoot saddle for a custom, locked-in fit, and is also treated with a durable water-repellent coating for all-weather use.
In the cushioning department, the shoe features a soft, single-density EVA midsole for just the right amount of comfort. Additional specs include a 3mm heel-to-toe differential for a low-to-the-ground, and a lightweight 9.6-ounce frame.
The Newton BoCo AT will retail for $129 starting November 1, 2013.
