Is there a product out there to stop stones getting in your shoes. I often have to stop to empty my trainers, just wondered if anyone else suffers from this and how they prevent it?

Inov8 do some small lightweight gaiters - I have a pair that I think i've used once, I just tend not to worry about them, don't tend to suffer too much with the problem...

Cheers Lirish, oh to think of the blisters/rub i could have saved myself from over the years if i'd just asked sooner!

Get some from a running specific manufacturer rather than a kicking specific one, the gaiters will be cut differently and you'll save yourself some pain by getting the right ones straight away, as stated inov 8 or salomon both do very good lightweight, but not cheap, ones

Google Inov8 debris gaiter. Only ??12 or so. That's fairly cheap I'd say...

Only thing I'd say is that I find my feet get hotter with gaiters on (I think mine are the Innov8 ones). Hotter feet, sweatier feet, more chance for blisters. Used mine a few times and gave up. But annoying debris in trainers is rare for me - just felt that I wanted to try them.


Just finished kit check for WhiteCliffs Challenge 52 tomorrow.

Might try mine again in winter time - just to see if they make any difference in mud etc. Have found that I only get the odd tiny stone in summer, and that's easily moved around in the shoe until it doesn't rub.

Gaffa tape your shoes to your socks.

Waiting for my inov8 to turn up as no one round here stocks them. I only wear road shoes so hopefuly overly hot feet shouln't be a problem.

Gaffa tape could be the answer if the gaitors are rubbish
