Vimazi Hits the Trails with First Ever Pace-tuned Trail Running Shoes

October 25, 2023

Portland, Ore., (Oct. 25, 2023)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Vimazi, developer of the first ever pace-tuned running shoes, announces today the release of their pace-tuned trail running collection. These new trail running shoes will continue Vimazi’s mission to provide runners with footwear engineered for their specific pace, promising to maximize cushioning and overall running efficiency while increasing stability during push off​.

The Trail Z2 ( 8:00-12:00 min/mi) and Trail Z3 (10:00-16:00 min/m) feature an aggressive tread, external rear stabilizer, stump-ready toe protection and built-in forefoot control during push-off. With a pace-tuned midsole the trail shoes deliver optimized cushioning, max propulsion efficiency, and better torsional stability on the trails. Both models have a wide toe box, molded foam heel counters, rocker design, lively pace-tuned feel and breathable upper. The trail shoes come in men’s and women’s versions and will retail for $170 MSRP.

The launch of the pace-tuned trail running shoes represents a breakthrough in the footwear industry, building on Vimazi’s pioneering approach to running shoe design. Instead of one-shoe-fits-all-paces, each Vimazi model is designed and scientifically engineered with a specific pace zone in mind. This ensures each runner receives a personalized and optimized level of cushioning, efficiency, and stability. The Vimazi trail shoes will provide the same pace-tuned benefits, ensuring trail runners can enjoy a shoe engineered for their personal pace​.

Vimazi’s founders, Scott Tucker and John Zilly, have a rich history in the running and footwear industries. Tucker, who has completed all six world marathon majors, was a trailblazer in trail running shoes during his tenure as president of Montrail and has created numerous running shoes for Scott Sports and PEARL iZUMi. Zilly, author of 12 guidebooks and founder of Adventure Press and Milepost59, has also competed in the USATF 50 Mile Trail Championships twice. Their combined experiences have culminated in the creation of Vimazi and its unique approach to running shoes​​.

“Our mission at Vimazi is to help runners unlock their full potential by providing them with shoes that are specifically designed for their pace,” said Scott Tucker. “We are excited to extend our pace-tuned technology to trail running shoes, providing trail runners with the same benefits enjoyed by road runners.”

The new pace-tuned trail running shoes have already received positive early reviews, with testimonials praising the innovative design, fit, and feel of the shoes. Trail Runner Magazine editors expressed their admiration for the fit, feel, and ride of Vimazi’s shoes, while other runners have described Vimazi’s footwear as “the best shoes I’ve ever worn”​.

Vimazi pace-tuned trail running shoes are available now online and at specialty run stores across the US. More information can be found on Vimazi’s website vimazi.com. Follow along on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
