Postby caseyt » Sat Jul 07, 2012 7:10 am

Hi!
Rookie question, if I usually wear stability shoes for running do I need to buy the same for trail shoes?
Help!!

yes if you are running trail - ie mainly horizontal foot placement. Cinder tracks, disused trainlines etc,

If you are going off road with uneven surfaces like fells, XC etc it isnt as important.

Walsh Spirit lite are my favourites, a lot of others like the kanadias from adidas.
Finally got time to return to the club, both virtually and physically, and I'm on the injured step.................

I personally like the ASIC Trabuco. There are Ladies models:

These are £50 and there are some gortex ones for £58.
I find the Gortex ones more durable but folk say once water gets in, it stays. I like em.

Done miles in mine and never a blister.
In contrast, the current model of Trabuco is cost reduced, larger toe box and gave me blisters.
Basically if its £65 or less its the older models.
Shep. Now I do love a bit of Gorgonzola.

See also Salomon Speedcross3, more for cross country/off road though, speed laces are fantastic, quick and cannot come undone. They are quite narrow though and do not suit everyone. Tread wears down quick on tarmac.
