Vasque Pendulum Trail Running Shoe - Women's - $87.96

Fashions in running shoes seems to be swinging wildly back and forth, but the Vasque Women's Pendulum Trail Running Shoe has decisively staked out the middle ground.

The Pendulum is the lightest and most nimble trail running shoe in the Vasque lineup, offering a solution for the minimalist-minded runner who doesn't want to get beat up by root-covered, rock-strewn trails. - $87.96
