Brooks Adrenaline ASR
If you want a smooth-riding and stable shoe that you can swap between the road and muddy tracks, then this is worth a look.

Our Review

The Adrenaline GTS is one of the best stability shoes on the market – smooth, responsive and exceptionally supportive. The Adrenaline ASR is almost exactly the same shoe, but tweaked slightly so that it can be used on the trail. The upper is more rugged than on the road shoe, with ...  Continue reading

A good shoe to complement the Brooks Adrenaline GTS range, but (as I've just found out after 3 years) there are better trail shoes around. Continue reading...
Great for over pronators who still want to be able to run off road. Continue reading...

Hi, I have been running for about 2 years now and could do with some advice regarding shoes. My route takes me both field and pavement. I'm trying to get some advice regarding a waterproof running shoe that will do for the path as well, is there such a shoe, as most of the forums discuss different shoes for different terrain etc. Any reccommendations of shoe brands would be a great help. Many thanks.

forget waterproof running shoes - I guess you're thinking of Goretex ones - they'll keep as much sweat in as water out so you'll still end up with soggy feet.................go for a good trail shoe as most of these will cope with hard surfaces but avoid anything aggressive like Walsh or Inov8 which are out and out off roaders..................most of the main brands have trail shoes (Asics do 3) so you should find domething to suit.........

Bought a pair of Asics TrabucoIX about a month ago have plenty of cushioning for some road running and are excellent off road.

AS FB says, waterproof is useless. You want something with a really light upper that lets the water out then get some good socks. I use Running Bear socks that use a wool mix in the foot so they are comfortable even when wet.
