With trail running on the rise, Karrimor has released their D30 and Excel Dual running shoes for 2013.
The Karrimor D30 (£159.99, pictured) includes rubber outsoles with deep lugs, designed for traction on uneven terrain, a waterproof fabric outer, which also promises to be breathable, and a TPU arch shank for added foot support. These shoes also include a quick lace system (elastic laces with a pull toggle), D30 technology for shock absorption, a full-length softer-density ride line for extra underfoot cushioning, and a dual density midsole.
The Excel Dual (£139.99), designed for off-road trail runs, utilises a moulded outsole with deep lugs, a TPU shank, to the arch for support, and a gel cushioned heel for shock absorption. This model also features aegis microbe mesh lining, which promises comfort and odour prevention, a mesh upper for breathability, and reflective detail.
