Iceland and ECCO Shoes: High-Latitude Trip

This week, I jetted to Iceland for a quick trip to see some sights and participate in an introduction of a new footwear line from Danish shoemaker ECCO. The company upgraded its BIOM line of running shoes, and I got to take a test on Icelandic soil. On trail runs and day hikes around Reykjavík for the past few days, I wore the BIOM Trail and BIOM Hike models, two products new this Fall. Here are a few images from the high-latitude adventure so far. —John Peacock
