Off-road brand Helly Hansen has taken its first steps into the road running category with these lightweight, minimal shoes. These seamless trainers have a 5mm drop and a responsive forefoot-strike that should see you fly on pacier sessions. The upper is lightweight, with a breathable mesh fabric that lets the foot breathe, while the midsole packs a lot of cushioning into such a lightweight shoe.
