MAINE RUNNING CO., Portland, Maine
1. Brooks Adrenaline GTS
2. Asics GT-2000
3. Saucony Guide 7
Top trend: “Definitely the more cushioned options for us are getting a lot of attention,” said Ben Webber, assistant GM. “People are asking about shoes that have a lower offset but with more cushioning. It’s crazy how the pendulum swings.”
1. Altra Superior and Olympus (tie)
2. Hoka One One Stinson Trail
3. Adidas Supernova Glide Boost
Top trend: “Trail shoes are working with all the trails opening back up,” said manager David Buckle.
FITRIGHT NW, Portland, Ore.
1. Brooks Adrenaline GTS
2. Saucony Guide 7 and Ride 6 (tie)
3. Asics GT-2000
Top trend: “Color is still a big push. People really enjoyed when color started to show up on the wall. It rains here a lot and when it’s colder, people want [nice] things to look at,” said co-owner Robb Finegan. “White is trending with a lot of the vendors, but we got a big shock this spring with people wanting more color and not the white mesh.”
