Pearl Izumi Will Stop Making Running Shoes and Apparel in 2017
The company plans to shift all focus to cycling
Pearl Izumi announced that it will discontinue its entire run business, including apparel and a popular line of trail- and road-running shoes, in a press release today.
The company will shift its focus entirely to its “core cycling business” as of January. The move is a return to roots for Pearl, which began in cycling apparel and entered the run market 13 years ago.
In other words, if you love your Trail N2s, it’s time to start stocking up.
