Red Wing, MN â€“ March 26, 2009 â€“ Performance outdoor footwear manufacturer Vasque is proud to announce that its Momenta women’s trail running shoe has earned the 2009 Spring Editor’s Choice Award from Women’s Adventure magazine.
Editors from the Boulder-based publication, the only outdoor sports, travel, and lifestyle magazine specifically for women who â€œthrive in the wild,â€ conducted a comprehensive search for the best women’s outdoor gear in a variety of different categories. Then, with more than 1,000 products in hand, they began field testing, running everything from bikes and backpacks to clothing and canoes through the ringer in a full range of terrain and weather conditions. The Vasque Momenta took top honors in the magazine’s Running category.
â€œWe’re honored they’ve recognized the Momenta for its strengths as a women’s trail runner,â€ says Vasque director of marketing Sarah Pitts. â€œWe designed it for exactly the same market Women’s Adventure is reaching out to. It’s made for women who love to be outdoors, who crave tough conditions, and who just want to run.â€
The Momenta, Vasque’s lightest women’s trail shoe to date, includes a women’s-specific fit, a high-performance EVA landing zone, and a tenacious Aether outsole designed for tight cornering and sure gripping in rough conditions. Ideal for race day or for short- to mid-distance training runs, the Momenta is technical through and through, from its sleek, foot-forming fit to its highly breathable upper.
And then, of course, there’s its looks. With its sophisticated styling, its fashion-forward colors, and its low profile, the Momenta makes a statement anywhere it goes. â€œThis shoe is hot,â€ says Pitts. â€œTie a pair on and you’ll see that the women’s specific design will enhance your comfort and performance.â€
The Vasque Momenta is one of several all-new women’s-specific models in the company’s Spring 2009 collection. For more information on all Vasque products, visit www.vasque.com.
