New hiking shoes by Ahnu

This month we are introducing a new line of hiking shoes by AHNU, for those who need a little more than a traditional trail runner.

For men, the Moraga Mesh is a great update to Ahnu's men's light hiker on an outdoor hiking stability platform. The mesh upper keeps your feet cool and comfortable on hikes. The neutral positioning technology promotes proper foot balance by helping your foot stay aligned and centered, providing stability and comfort.

Designed for:

  • Traditional Hiking
  • Fast Hiking
  • Traditional Walking

For women, the Sugarpine Air Mesh is an athletic-inspired hiker, offering style and performance for the trail or the city. This lightweight hiker features a breathable mesh upper, while the leather overlays provide flexible support and structure on the trail. Underfoot, the Vibram rubber outsole keeps you surefooted with every step.
Also for women, the Montara II Nubuck lightweight waterproof/breathable hiker is the perfect choice for all day wear both on and off the trail. A Vibram rubber outsole and Ahnu's neutral positioning technology provide stability and comfort on your hike.

Designed for:

  • Traditional Hiking
  • Fast Hiking
  • All Day walking

Because we don't send out an email every time there is a sale, or a race, or an event at the store, or at a school, or in the community, we post these things on Facebook. We post maybe once a week, to keep it unobtrusive. It isn't about promoting product, but rather about events in the running and walking world, goings-on in the community, and sometimes the accomplishments of some of its members.

AND, to keep things interesting, we do a drawing once a quarter among all our Facebook friends for a $100 Athletic Feat gift certificate! Spend it on shoes, apparel, accessories, you choose.

See you there!
