Falkon trail runners for kids from La SportivaPerhaps La Sportiva president Jonathan Lantz got tired of seeing his children in shoes from another brand or maybe he just wanted to add a youth dimension to the lineup. Either way, the Falkon has many of the features of the adult version with an EVA midsole and FriXion outsole. Like the adult version, these shoes are as likely to be used in every day conditions as on the trail. Available early 2014 for $75. http://www.sportiva.com/

The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will also run in the Tribune. — Brett Prettyman
