I have the True Grit, and they are a very comfortable lightweight shoe, with pretty good cushioning that still gives you good feedback from the trail. I can't comment in orthotics though. I have run long distnaces in them, including the Thames Trot, with no issues. I now wear the Minimus 10 (I think) but would consider using the Grit for ultra distances.
They do have removeable soles. I'd give them a go, they are not at all extreme, and gave me no calf aches at all the way some minimalist shoes can. They are more of an intermediate shoe - elemental, I think they call them.
Thanks, I found some in a local running shop so I now have them on my feet Wow how comfy are they??? I'm looking forward to testing them this evening, slightly worried that the tread might not be aggressive enough for the wet muddy trails at the moment but hopefully it will try up a bit soon!!!!!
They are okay in the thick stuff, but not too good on wet, slidey stuff. Anyway, enjoy, and report back.
My new Saucony Kinvara 3 are great, lightweight, 4mm heel drop and work fine with my orthotics. Done up to HM with my Kinvara 1's but loads of people marathon in them...
DOH - noticed trail shoes. I have just got a set of Innov-8 315's - very light and seem very good (although not had them on the tough stuff yet!)
Love the Cadence and now want to try the Grit. Where the hell stocks these?
Can you try them on at Google? !
I did that too. Belfast is a little too far for me to travel from Leeds.
