It only comes in one colorway but the Fila Men’s Trailpacer has enough pizzazz to make it worthy footwear for modern hikers. This is a pair of sneakers that Fila designed to care for your feet while hiking and conquering the trail. It has a bold look that belies the shoe’s exceptional functionality in the dirt road.
Drawing inspiration from the silhouettes of yesteryears’ hiking shoes, the Trailpacer offers a more contemporary approach to trekking. Its upper does not include any luxurious leather material. Fila makes up for it by integrating synthetic materials. It is a combination of canvas and premium-quality synthetics that are comfortable to the feet. The blend of these materials also ensures better performance in the outdoor trails.
Part of Fila’s Canyon series, the Trailpacer comes in bright blue and orange accents. The shoemaker also integrated silver elements in reflective trim. It is a nice way to increase one’s visibility in the trails, in case you’re the type of hiker who prefers going on adventures after dark.
Securing every step you make on the trail is courtesy of Fila’s grippy rubber outsoles. The nubs work like the spikes on a footballer’s shoe. They give you that confidence to hike on unfamiliar terrain. Planting each foot on the ground is easy enough with these spiky extensions digging deep into the ground.
Fila ditched the conventional eyelets for its lacing system. Instead, it integrates a series of small rings that make it a lot easier to thread the lace. Canvas flaps support each of these rings while adding a visual element to the Trailpacer’s overall design.
The Fila Men’s Trailpacer is a true conqueror of the outdoors. Too bad, its spiky outsoles mean you cannot use the sneakers on the street. Nevertheless, when it’s all about hiking adventures, then the Trailpacer is your best bet.
