(for a forefoot/midfoot striker ... if that matters)
Looking for a starting point in my quest for a pair of lightweight trail shoes. Over the last year, I've got used to running in fairly minimal shoes and hoping to find something that is suitable for trails but won't feel like I've got two blocks of concrete on my feet.
Not sure if it makes a difference, but I'm a fore/midfoot striker.
I've not seen any in the flesh, but New Balance seem to have something to offer:
That said, from looking at the sizes on offer it looks like they've imported a batch from the US and have mostly sold out.
Thanks both, I will try to visit a running shop at the weekend so I can try them on before I start shopping online or utilising my Sweatshop gift card
I really like the Saucony Kinvara, so will be very interested to try the Peregrine. Quite a few of my longer runs are a mix of trail and road so it sounds as though they may be just what I'm looking for.
I've just picked up a pair of New Balance MT101's for £39.99 from JJB Sports - bargain
Thanks for the tips guys! I will keep an eye out for the NB101 ... can't argue with those prices!
If you want minimalist, the trail version of the Terra Plana Neo is available half price on sportsshoes.com at the moment.

Ankle deep in mud everything performs the same. .
Have to disagree quite strongly with the above.........
Just meant Row-land that on an ice rink £2.50 plimsolls grip the same as £100 trail shoes.
Ice Rink ... Yes..
Ankle depth mud... No..
