I got my non trail perfect for the road Saucony mirages 3 months back i absolutely love them. Previous i was on nike lunar eclipses which provided far more support.
My aim at the time of buying the saucony's was to get a lighter more neutral shoe, albeit not as neutral as the kinvara i did not feel i was quite ready to go that neutral.
So my question for you, what Trail shoe would anybody recommend for a lover of the saucony mirage. My mirages weigh in at 306 grams and have a 4mm drop in the heel. I very very mildly over pronate.
thank you in advance of your replies
I'm also a big fan of the Mirages.
I don't have any trail running knowledge or experience, but I did look into them a little while ago in the wintry conditions. The Saucony Kinvara TR and Peregrine models seemed the best match. Whilst these don't offer any support (i.e. would be classified as neutral), you'll find that most trail shoes are neutral as the rough ground of trail running means that probation is not so much of an issue.
Thanks stutyr appreciate the reply, i have an extrmely supportive adidas trail shoe which has never let me down, downside it is heavy as !!
i tried the brooks pure grits which were no support, and i got some mild pain first time, second time it seemed to ease but i had to give them back as was a 10 day trial. I really did like the feeling of running on them and the looked cool, im just worried i guess i get a pair and get pain as i really need them for long trails and stupid things like tough mudder. thanks for the reply again, i love the peregrines and kinvaras just worried about buying a pair and it not working out, was hoping there is a simple Mirage Trail offering...
