Updates to Dynafit Trailbreaker

  • The Dynafit Trailbreaker is a running shoe that’s designed for those who have a proclivity for off-road adventures. It has a non-aggressive yet sporty look, though its outsole is adorned with trail-ready traction nodes for assured performance on the trails.
  • The Alpine Air Mesh is a proprietary fabric that accommodates airflow into the foot-chamber. It is bolstered by a thin overlay that encompasses the vital parts of the façade, namely the forefoot, midfoot and heel.
  • Underfoot cushioning is provided by a full-length ethylene vinyl acetate foam. This industry-standard material attenuates the impact shock produced by landing the foot on the ground. Serving as a barrier against wear and tear is a rubber outsole.

Dynafit Trailbreaker size and fit

The standard measurements were used in the making of the Dynafit Trailbreaker. So, when it comes to size, runners can get the options with which they’re comfortable. The available width variants are D – Medium and B – Medium for men and women, respectively. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe accommodates the natural curvature of the human foot.

Outsole

The POMOCA® Grip and Gliding Path are outsole systems that heighten performance on the trails. These elements originate from the rubber compound that graces the underside of the Dynafit Trailbreaker. The perimeter has multidirectional gripping lugs that deliver traction over a variety of terrains and surface conditions. The middle part features a curved outline that guides the wearer towards a smooth execution.

For a road running counterpart, the Brooks Ghost 11 is a worthy contender, as it also functions well for daily runs; it is also designed for neutral pronators like the Dynafit Trailbreaker is.

Midsole

EVA or ethylene vinyl acetate is the primary cushioning unit of the Dynafit Trailbreaker. This material runs the entire length of the platform. Its purpose is to provide responsive cushioning and defense against impact and surface abrasion.

An Ortholite® Sock Liner is placed above the EVA foam. It adds a bit more cushioning for the underfoot. Its anti-moisture and antibacterial properties help in maintaining a healthy in-shoe environment. It can be removed or replaced with a new one.

Upper

The Dynafit Trailbreaker features the Alpine Air Mesh. This fabric has a semi-tight weave to prevent trail debris from entering the foot-chamber, but it’s not so close-constructed as to deter the flow of air.

A moisture-wicking interior sleeve hugs the foot and prevents sweat from getting absorbed into the lining of the upper.

A one-piece synthetic overlay is fused to the mesh. This thin, printed add-on reinforces the façade, thus giving it form and structure. It also helps in providing a snug fit.

A traditional lacing system is employed in this running shoe. Semi-flat laces crisscross on the instep section, looping through discreet eyelets that are strengthened by the one-piece overlay. The tongue unit has a fabric tab that anchors the laces to it, thereby preventing any incidence of tongue-deviation.

The padded tongue and collar hold the foot in place while also cushioning it and preventing accidental shoe removals.
