What are your favourite brand of running shoes, and why?
Personally, I tend to use Asics and Inov8 due to comfort and lightness. Though now I’m mostly on roads, I’ve gone back to an old pair of UK-Gear shoes.
Adidas Ultra Boost for road running - my first pair of running shoes when I started running a few years ago and love them.
Innov8 X-Talon 230 for muddy orienteering.
My general trail shoes do not bring me joy.
Inov 8 Roclite 330 for 14 years now
Good all rounders, giving VG responsiveness, control, comfort and speed
Inov8 X Talon 230, but they cause one of my Achilles pain. I think I need different shoes before I do damage.
Salomon Speedcross 4 : amazing grip in the mud, especially on the hills, and my big toes don’t wear their way out of the top of them like they do in most other shoes!
I keep mine for running off road, but then I try only to run offroad as that is all my old joints can take!
Mine are well cushioned so that helps. But I don’t run when ground’s hard as I get achilles tendonitis, but in boggy forests of lakes and scotland they’re fine. I take street running shoes to summer relays events because of extra bounce but they get ripped in undergrowth!
