June 23, 2016

June 23, 2016 – Asheville, NC – The trails are about to make a new best friend. Astral’s new TR-1 Series represents a fresh generation of lightweight, performance trail shoes that feature Astral’s coveted G® rubber outsoles, Balanced Geometry™ Midsoles, and Astral’s ingenious Top Shank™ that reduces foot fatigue while allowing maximum trail conformity and grip.

The TR1 Series is comprised of the TR1 Trek, TR1 Junction, and TR1 Mesh, and is available for both men and women. The TR1 Trek, with its protective TPU overlays on Canvas upper is ideal for burly trails. The super-light, TR1 Mesh is turbo-ventilated for summer days on the trail or canyons, while the TR1 Junction perfectly blends durability, ventilation and style in a single shoe suitable for use every day.

“Building upon our fundamentals of lightness, superlative grip, balance and water-readiness, we have developed some of the most unique and versatile trail shoes on the market,” says CEO and Product Director, Philip Curry.

The TR1 Series will hit retail shelves Spring 2017 with MSRP $120-130. Get a sneak peek at the upcoming Summer Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, Utah at Astral’s booth #38104. For more information contact Julie Bacon at jbacon@darbycommunications.com.
