    I really love how nimble I feel wearing the Magna Trails. They are so lightweight that I barely notice them on my feet and they make me want to trot along and jog occasionally when I wear them.

  • This lightweight hiking shoe from Vivobarefoot, the Magna Trail, is designed to accompany hikers in their outdoor adventures. It bears a minimalist style, thanks to the no-sew construction of its nylon upper.
  • It has a Thermal Insole which helps keep the foot cozy and warm without restricting its movement. Its sticky rubber outsole grips on most types of terrain.

The Vivobarefoot Magna Trail is a reasonably true-to-size minimalist hiking shoe for men and women. Lengthwise, it is primarily offered in whole sizes. Both versions come in standard width. Its quick-to-adjust lacing system allows users to fine-tune the tension and overall volume.

The Vivobarefoot Magna Trail uses the brand-owned Firm Ground rubber outsole that is optimized for off-road performance. Using the Tough Rubber compound, the said component delivers traction on wet and dry surfaces. It keeps a low-profile with the 3 mm base and lugs. A patented puncture-resistant layer is present to amplify its defenses against the rockiest terrain.

Sitting atop the midsole of this shoe for hiking is a 3.5 mm Thermal Insole. This element uses the Outlast thermal regulator, a reflective foil and an insulating foam. These materials are responsible for keeping the feet warm even under very low temperatures.

The upper of the Magna Trail is made of water-repellent nylon. It is crafted using a no-sew construction technique which optimizes its durability yet keeping a minimalist style. It also maintains a warm, cozy feel, thanks to its thermal insulation.

The ankle is wrapped in a neoprene material which allows the foot to move freely. The reinforcement at the back of the shoe helps keep the heel in place and adds structure.

Its lace-up closure includes speed hooks and wing lace lock for quick fit adjustment. To facilitate a smooth on and off, it comes with pull tabs at the tongue and back of the shoe.
