14. The North Face Mens Single Track Hayasa Shoe
Perfect for lovers of running off the beaten track, this ultra-lightweight shoe features the delightfully named Snake Plate and Cradle technology which provides comfort and cushioning in the crucial forefoot and heel areas of your foot. A super-sticky grip outsole will help tackle tricky terrain while a protective toecap should help protect against running into stones or a loose branch. They’ve been tested by ultra runner Tsuyoshi Kaburaki which suggests that the Hayasa is capable of going the distance.
