Hi there. Don't actually understand the difference between racing/racer trainers, but what shoes you should wear for ultras really depends on (1) the terrain and (2) personal preference, usually figured out by trial and error.

If you're doing a road ultra, probably just wear the same road shoes you'd use to run a marathon. If you're going off-road, you'll probably do better in some sort of trail shoe. But some folk run off-road in road shoes and get on okay so like I say, personal preference and trial and error...

I'd wear red ones. Red ones are the fastest I think. Or green ones. But only at the weekend.

Lirish, would red shoes with green laces give the maximum benefit?

Red with green laces? Eugh, now you're just being silly Lou, if you're to going to take this discussion seriously there's no point.

WiB green for the weekends. And for best, don't forget that. But red otherwise. Unless you're running on the road, in which case white. Or black.

....and then theres the bit about which colour road you run on.....

Blue will work better on a wet day so  always worth checking the forecast before you put your shoes on.

never thought about the weather JF50.....good point there..so what about if its hot? do red stick to the floor?

21/09/2012 at 16:43

Would it be safest to stick to grey socks?

21/09/2012 at 16:43

That way you can cope with road and trail in the same event....
