The running season is officially upon us, and what better way to celebrate it than with a brand-new collection from The North Face? After the success of The North Face Summit Vectiv 2.0 Pro, which cropped up on many trail shoe roundups, including our best trail running shoe guide, the outdoor brand has treated us once again, this time with the launch of their exciting new Enchanted Trail Collection.

Inspired by the desert, the new collection sees five of The North Face’s running essentials given a fresh new look, as they’ve been revamped in bright, tropical colourways. Three of the brand’s most technical shoes have also been included in the collection and finished in new energetic prints to help you stand out during your runs.

First up of the five items is the Limitless Run Shorts. A comfortable companion to see you through your run with an adjustable waistband and available in four new bright colours. The blue coral is particularly nice if you’re after something a little bolder from your bland black running shorts, but is still versatile.

The Run Wind Jacket also looks very cool with its tropical print pattern, and I can see this being an extremely popular item within the collection, not just with runners but those who just love The North Face’s style.

The bucket hat, again, I think will be similar to the jacket, and I won’t be surprised if it makes a debut at a few festivals. It’s available in either the same tropical print pattern as the jacket or a bright electric blue and is made from sweat-wicking material, and is water repellent.

Last but not least is the run belt in retro orange, which is a game changer, and if you don’t own one, you definitely should consider it. Shoes that have also been injected with an energetic print include the Summit VECTIV Pro, VECTIV Infinite 2, VECTIV Eminus, all of which are ideal for outdoor running and will help you firmly stand out on your trails.
