The difference between road- and trail-running shoes
Find out what those differences mean for performance and if you really need to own a pair of both. To help you figure things out, we're going to break it down.
Training exercises for running
Runners know that to become a better runner, you have to log miles and put in the work. But not all that work has to come from hitting the pavement.
Why run with REI?
We know what it takes to wake up at 5 a.m., lace up your running shoes, and get out the door. We know because we’re right there with you, running the same trails, parks, and routes. Which is why we’re very selective about the road running shoes, trail running shoes, running clothing, and fitness electronics we recommend. From Brooks and Hoka to Altra and Salomon, you better believe every pair of running shoes has been tried and tested, including our used running gear. We hope this page serves as a hub for all the inspiration and information you need to get out there and run with us.
