Although not an orienteerer myself, I have read that many run in "V-J studded shoes". Does anyone use them for fell or cross country running, and if so--how do they compare with other running shoes? A web site that sells them is www.ultrasport.co.uk

As nobody has answered this post, I suspect that none of us runners wear them?

I use Felldancer or PB WAlsh studded shoes for cross country and trail running.

Ii have worn Walshes in the past(20 odd years ago in my teens!) but they seem to be too narrow for me nowadays. I was wondering whether anyone wore the V J orienteering shoes and if they were any wider in the toebox than the Walshes?

Have you tried Felldancer's they're a bit wider than Walshes ? There's also the Adidas Swoop or the New Balance RX Terrain.
