Cushioned Trail Shoes

Steve NordRunnerPeregrine ST are soft terrain and feel the same as Peregrines for fit but have longer studs - 6.5 mm IIRC. They are really great except when they have no grip at all on wet smooth granite. Can't understand that, as Peregrines grip well in the same conditions. Perhaps it's the addition of carbon black to the rubber?
Since I last wrote on the thread I am a big fan of NB Fresh Foam More Trail v1 and so far they seem to have great grip everywhere and are also OK for road to trail.

K5 GusSynge - in case you dont know, Speedgoat 5 is newly out now, reviews are it's an improvement, but you'll probably be able to pick up v4 at discount if that's a factor.
Another shoe I've seen good reviews of, but not tested, is the VJ Ultra, and I'm also interested in the new NB Hierro v5 which has a big weight saving on v4, but very limited reviews so far.

Bowman 🇸🇪I have both speedgoat 4 and 5.
5 is a little stiffer, but still a soft and nice shoe. And the grip is really good.
The small changes are nice.
