I don't have any issue with the insole fortunately and managed a half marathon on a beach with no problems.
I'm thinking I may want a more 'roady' pair of shoes though as doing a marathon on the road and the trials I go on are mainly hard - not muddy tracks.
A good pair of comfy road shoes will be fine on all but the roughest of trails- snd i wouldn't wsnt to run on anything that needs tractor tyres attaching to my feet as that kind of trail could only lead to injury. A mixed terrain trail race that I ran on Sunday actually advised normal road shoes instead of trail shoes.
My regular run is 1 mile footpaths to a 5 mile trail route of mixed surfaces, then the mile of footpaths back home.
I agree with others that in dry conditions, some road shoes are suitable.
I probably do this wrong, but I wear my Inov8 Trailroc 255's for my complete run. I have never had sore feet or injury - unlike wearing road shoes with more cushioning.
