Not everyone does their running on the track or road. If you prefer to use the great outdoors as your course, check out the Columbia Master Of Faster Multi-Sport Shoe ($125). Designed specifically for trail running, the Master features a Techlite midsole for greater feel and reduced weight, a unique outsole with softer materials under your heel for cushioning and denser materials at the edges for stabilization, and an Omni-Tech waterproof, breathable upper membrane that lets you run without worrying about puddles, yet still keeps your foot dry when the heat is on.
You don't need to be a skateboarder to see the appeal of these Converse KA-One Sneakers ($60). The signature shoe of skater Kenny Anderson, the KA-One is modeled after the Classic Trainer '76, and features a full-body black suede upper, "KA-ONE" logos, a low cut, and a hefty outsole.
