Hoka Mafate Trail Shoe Review – Buy Now 8

The Hoka Mafate’s are live at Mountains Plus Outdoor Gear, Buy NOW!

Karl Meltzer convinced me to try these shoes in April and “WOW” is all I can say!  My first thought is these are the fat skis of trail shoes, the stability and comfort Hoka’s provide through rugged terrain is unbelievable and the rolled up sole design really improves the efficiency of your stride. Don’t be surprised if you feel some tired muscles after your first couple trail runs,”Time To Fly”.

At 320 grams a pair,

National Trails Day 2

Each year the American Hiking Society celebrates National Trails Day to inspire public and outdoor enthusiast to seek out their favorite trail to discover, learn about, educate and work on trail projects throughout the country.  It’s great to see the movement as U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has announced the designation of 31 new National Recreation Trails across 15 states. The new trails will add more than 716 miles to the National Trails System, increasing its total size by nearly 6 percent.
