Cross Country Shoes?

Inov-8 x-talons would fit the bill or mudclaws if you want something a bit more extreme.

Thanks for the advice everyone.

I've taken a punt and ordered one. Arrived this morning and does look good so far.

Thinking about getting a Tom Tom runner GPS watch with christmas bonus (if I get one!)

Anybody have any experiences to share?

I use a Silva Trail. Used to have an Alpkit Gamma but when it died they were out of stock (these things sell fast).

The Silva is definitely brighter and a bit more refined but it costs more and lacks the over-the-head strap and tail light. Still a good torch though.


+1 for the Silva trail runner.

100+ lumens - very bright.

Wide fitting trail shoes?

You`l want Inov8 Mudclaws or X-Talons for sqidgy-sloppy conditions Natty ..

I'd go mudclaw for sloppy and x-talon for squidgy. Maybe a trailroc for less sloppy squidgey stuff!

Inov8 are now making their X talon 212 in two width fittings I believe.  The blue & orange ones.

Yep - precision or standard fit. 2 more ways to fleece you of £100!

I know the compressport cycling socks are the same as their running socks but just slightly longer.

Inov-8 Roclite 315s. Stopped making ladies sizes?

Inov-8 haven't made the 315 for a while now. The replacement (though not exatly the same) is the 295 which is available on a women's last.
