    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.

Updates to Vivobarefoot Magna Trail

  • 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.

Vivobarefoot Magna Trail size and fit

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.

Outsole

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.

Midsole

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.

Upper

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.
