Brian McIntosh: ULTRA 103S (UPDATED 102S) ARE WELL, OK Strengths: Breathability. OK on road and trail. Weaknesses: Breathability. OK on road and trail. Overall: OK for training but not for anyone racing.
In short:A Gore-Tex XCR membrane in the upper a gusseted tongue. While you can add a gaiter.
heavier, more comfortable sibling. It should have a broader appeal than the Trailfox thanks to extra cushioning and a wider fit. It isn't as extreme as the Trailfox with shallower lugs better suited to harder-packed trails than a really extreme off-road
. Good grip off-road. Weaknesses: Lightweight, fast, breathable, low profile, good support and cushioning. Good grip off-road. Overall: A great shoe. I bought these a week (yes, just one week) before the London to Brighton off-road ultra. I have high
that require extra grip. They also clean up very well, even after a trip through the Bog of Doom. Lorry Dodger: Excellent Off Road Shoe Strengths: Relative light weight, very grippy in mud and recent snow. Weaknesses: Relative light weight, very grippy in mud
on the multiple surfaces. Overall: I bought these shoes because I run in asics 11401's for slight pronation and these seemed to fit the bill for off road........they felt comfortable for my 4 mile test...I then asked a lot out of them by doing a 45 mile ultra race
