Rockridge Picked as “Best for Rugged Terrain” in Shape Magazine
Richmond, Calif. (April 1, 2010) –The Montrail Rockridge™ has been honored once again in the April 2010 issue of Shape magazine, a premiere women’s fitness and lifestyle magazine. The Shape Shoe Awards testers selected the Rockridge as “Best for Rugged Terrain.” The Rockridge was also recently awarded “Editors’ Choice Best All-Arounder” in the April 2010 issue of Trail Runner magazine.
“The feedback we are getting with the Rockridge right now is incredible,” said Todd Lewis, Montrail Product Manager. “For the second year in a row, and the second time this season, Montrail has turned out award-winning trail runners, testament to the Product Development Team’s running know-how.”
The 2010 Rockridge™ is a low-profile, neutral shoe with outstanding cushioning perfect for dirt, rock and fire roads. It features the VEL last (think Velocity for speed) designed specifically for trail runners with its medium-volume fit and roomy toe box. The outsole has been optimized for moderate to technical trail conditions with deflecting lugs for cushioning and perimeter digging lugs for traction up and down hills.
Shape testers specifically called out the mesh upper that “keeps toes dry and cool” yet “withstands pokes from branches.” The newly designed outsole on the Rockridge “...makes you feel ‘secure enough to run anywhere without fear of slipping.’”
