I just returned from Denver after a great weekend at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. Looking back at last year, my highlights were very product focused. This year, I find myself focusing more on the important topics and ideas in the outdoor industry. I’ve put together a list of the 5 major industry related highlights that stood out for me.
Hoka One One is probably the fastest growing company in the light hiking and trail running world at the moment. Hoka started a few years ago with max cushioned shoes and took the industry by storm. For those already familiar with Hoka’s trail lineup, you’ll be excited to see refinements to the Speedgoat, Mafate Evo, and Challenger lineup. New for 2019, will be the burly and rugged Arkali.
