The eco-friendly rubber outsole on this shoe grips every surface, while its gusseted tongue and breathable, water-repelling upper shield feet from rocks and rain. Extra cushioning guarantees comfy runs. "These are lightweight with terrific traction," Kass says. "Plus, the colors totally camouflaged all the dirt I picked up!" ($85, nike.com)
