Tarmac to Trail shoes

Posted: 26/10/2014 at 11:07

Happy to run a few Ks on tarmac in Talons 212s if it means I can have all that grip/stability once in the forests/hills ...  Tried Kanadias & speedcross2/3s but they don`t come close to the Talons performance...

Wide fitting trail shoes?

I have been recommended Inov8 Trailroc 245 and 255 as wide fitting but haven't tried them yet 

I own both those trailrocs Natty and neither are very effective when the going gets muddy!!

Very impressed with the Trailroc 245s, probably the most stable shoe I`ve ever run in over rough terrain... 

Advice on Trail shoes

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 13:49

lower profile does mean less cushioning Bob, also worth mentioning heel to toe differentials.. ie, Your current Asics road shoes have an 11/12mm differential, those Trailroc 245s were just 3mm and the Saucony Xodus 3.0s are just 4mm... 

Now some people can transition down without issues but I know a few runners that have suffered serious achiles tendon/calf muscles problems changing from an 11mm shoe down to an 8mm!!
