Trail optimized outsole of  The North Face Flight Trinity

EXTS or Exploration Trax System is a trail-optimized outsole configuration. A rubber compound covers the entire sole unit, acting as a shield against the harsh nature of the off-road. A sturdy construction permits this layer to last long while a grippy characteristic makes it naturally adherent to the various surface qualities.

A bevy of gripping lugs pockmarks the external pad. These nodes have different shapes that offer unique traction capacities: Triangles are for upward and downward traversals while three-pointed stars handle uneven paths and sideward movements.

Shallow trenches line the forefoot and heel, and they allow the underfoot platform to bend in conjunction with the foot as it goes through the heel-to-toe transitions.

Energized steps with The North Face Flight Trinity midsole

FastFoam™ is used for the midsole unit of The North Face Flight Trinity. This technology is composed of a flexible and springy forefoot, as well as a heel part that is firm and ready to absorb impact shock. Both these qualities help the runner in achieving smooth and energized steps.

A footbed from the company OrthoLite® is placed right above the main cushioning system. The purpose of this add-on is to provide a feeling of consistent underfoot softness. The insoles of the OrthoLite® brand are treated with antimicrobial and anti-moisture capacities to protect against odor-causing bacteria and retention of sweat.

Secured yet lightweight running experience with The North Face Flight Trinity upper

The upper unit of The North Face Flight Trinity features a ripstop textile, a lightweight and flexible material that resembles regular mesh. But this item differentiates itself from its contemporaries by being resistant to abrasion. Furthermore, it has plenty of breathing holes that permit the flow of air into and through the interior chamber.

The inner sleeve of this neutral running shoe is made up of a knitted fabric. The softness of this wall has the goal of evoking a perception of being wrapped by a sock. Flexibility and natural movement can be appreciated as it doesn’t have a restrictive weave. Moreover, the breathable purpose of the upper unit isn’t hindered because the knitted interior is also friendly to airflow.

The padded collar has the job of cushioning the Achilles tendon and the ankles. It is also meant to lock the foot in place and prevent it from getting out of the interior chamber unexpectedly.

A 3D-printed overlay is fused to the heel part of the upper unit. This grid-like layer is tasked with assisting the silhouette when it comes to clutching the heel and keeping it in place.

Thin, synthetic prints adorn the sides and the toe box. These thin films bolster the silhouette, allowing it to stay upright, even after many uses. They also reinforce the tear-resistance of the upper unit.

A fabric tongue unit covers the bridge of the foot like a blanket, protecting the skin from any hot spots that may arise from adjusting the crisscrossing shoelaces. This accoutrement has a gusseted design to prevent it from deviating from its original position and to stave off any trail debris from attempting to enter from the shoe’s opening.

A traditional lacing system is placed on the Flight Trinity. Semi-flat shoelaces snake through discreet eyelets on the instep, encompassing the middle part of the foot’s bridge. Adjusting the cords causes the cover system to tighten or loosen, depending on the fit preferences of the wearer.

A tongue anchor is a tab on the shoe tongue which is made to link the shoelaces to the instep. Such a mechanism prevents the crinkling of the fabric, an event that is usually associated with chafing.
