While training in an outdoor environment, challenges brought about from various terrains are inevitable. That is the key reason of a constant search for a perfect footwear cushioning solution. Living up to the spirit of “Never Stop Exploring”, The North Face is transforming these outdoor obstacles into the delight of the journey, helping you run beyond your “ambitious goals”.

The North Face releases its new trail running shoes to provide runners with support in an all-round way. XtraFoam™ offers highly efficient cushioning by absorbing the shock and delivering excellent comfort underfoot, while the FastFoamTM dual-density midsole system provides a combination of responsive energy return and underfoot stability. The new proprietary Exploration Trax System (ETSTM) outsole combines ergonomic and multidirectional ridge design to separate its functions on dry and wet terrains, thus giving you the optimal experience of unfaltering grip and durable trail performance.

New Technology of Energy Return – FastFoam™

With a seamless mesh upper, the high-performance running shoes – Corvara brings you comfort and supporting upper coverage for your feet. TPU forefoot overlay delivers superior protection for outdoor activities with its exceptional stability and flexibility. The FastFoam™ dual-density midsole offers the most energy return, accumulating the impact of the next step while cushioning in order to make the movement comfortable and stable. The compression-molded EVA midsole prevents the shoes from abrasion and deformation. Moreover, the proprietary ETSTM outsole ensures the exceptional durability and traction on both wet and dry terrains.

Hailing from the professional FLIGHT SERIES, the Flight Trinity also adopts the FastFoamTM midsole system to
give you a comfortable experience while maximizing the retention and progression of kinetic energy. It features a fully knitted upper and seamless lining, offering customized comfort and breathability. The innovative 3D-printed external heel provides great protection for your ankles, while the heel remains stable amidst multi-angle and directional movements. Similarly, the proprietary ETSTM outsole system provides balanced traction on both wet and dry surfaces. Even on tough terrains, it can grip trail terrain with ease, allowing you to break through personal limits and run farther.

Named after the mountain in Italy, Ampezzo, the high-performance runner adopts dual-mesh upper for extra support and breathability. With seamless TPU patches on forefoot and heel, it can effectively enhance the flexibility of the shoe body and provide lightweight protection. With professional High Rebound OrthoLite insoles, it ensures a seamless fit and ultimate comfort for you. The sole uses XtraFoamTM midsole technology to ensure excellent stability and full cushioning. The Ampezzo is ideal for both field and daily runners.

Apparel Smart Zoning

Men’s Apparel of the Trail Running collection is based on ergonomics considerations, using highly praised elastic woven fabrics, allowing you to feel the flexibility of the body in sports, and comfortable breathability, compatible with functionality, fashion and durability. The concept of 3-Zone design greatly improves the comfort and practicability of wearing. FlashDry technology is used in top design. It can quickly dry and deodorize, and further reduces the resistance of movement with Tactel ultra-light fabric. The 3-Zone design lies in the bottoms as well. Apart from wicking away sweat, the bottoms are designed for perfect fit with the external drawstring and large pockets, letting you perform better in cross-country and daily training.

The new women’s wear has been improved and adopted with ergonomic ventilation design. Combining the concepts of different elastic fabrics and ventilation zones, it provides more superior flexibility and comfort. The tops are made of 90% nylon and 10% elastic fibers. The short sleeves and long sleeves are made of breathable mesh at the armhole, and the ultralight woven fabric with Tactel yarn guarantees the durability and elasticity. In addition, the training shorts is one of the highlights of the collection. Lightweight stretch fabric paired with the waistband drawstring for adjustability, the shorts has more space for storage to keep you comfortable on long-distance running. FlashDry technology also meets the need for quick drying. Fashionable, simple and refreshing with more functional, the new collection brings you more fun in outdoor activities.

The North Face’s pursuit of quality and practicality goes far beyond “versatile in style”, while “versatile in use” is the new trend. When you step into mountains, the Flight Race MT 12 hydration pack with lightweight air mesh back panel and stretch mesh pockets ease your burden with excellent breathability, and with the reflective logo, the bag ensures your safety and supply at any time on your way. When you are traveling from home to work, to the gym, to a night out jogging, and back home again, the Terra Metro Bag keeps you looking good and provides all-round functions. The outer fabric is 400D nylon while the interior is durable polyester fabric with fleece lining to protect your laptop and other valuables. Moreover, the zippered and collapsible divider stores extra contents.
