DESIGN STORY 17: Viking Apex 2 GTX

After several seasons of designing robust snow boots and light hikers for Viking Footwear, we were given the opportunity to do something very different for one of our favorite, long-standing clients. Tasked with updating their most popular trail running model, the Apex, we collaborated closely with the Norwegian outdoor brand to develop the Apex 2 GTX — a sleek and fast trail running shoe with all of the necessary components to perform at the highest level, while still staying warm and dry in the harsh Scandinavian environment.

See the full design story of the Apex 2 GTX below, as seen on our Instagram. From ideation to completion, we are proud to see this final product out in the world and trust it will remain the brand’s most beloved trail runner.
