Can anyone recommend a good high mileage trail shoe, ideally one that is suitable for running to/from/between trails as well as on them. I'm running in Adidas Kanadias at the mo but I'm finding them uncomfortable for longer runs. Any ideas? Ta.

I guess it depends on your form. Do you need support and what kind of drop from heel to toe? If you don't know the answers then it might be best to go to a shop or somewhere where they can watch you run on a treadmill, have a look at your feet etc.

Maybe to help anyone else that might want to give advice, you could provide more detail on what i currently wrong and what you are looking for

How are your current shoes uncomfortable?

Are they rubbing? If so, where? arch / heel / ankle etc

or do this inside / outside of your lower legs tire - the peronials?

or do your feet just get sore? Where? heel / toe / metatarsals?

I think going to a specialised running shop if best but not everyone has access to those.

Thanks R-I-C & Kieren.
The Kanadias feel as though they're lacking in forefoot cushioning, regular blisters on the balls of my feet on runs over 10 miles. I also find the toe-box a bit tight. No other pain as such.
On the road I wear Adidas Supernova Sequence and Brooks Adrenaline.
I'm planning to lessen my road running and increase my trail running, I also plan to increase my distance gradually but considerably.
Long slow trail running is what I'm aiming for and I'm looking for a shoe to spend a lot of time in.

If you get on with Brooks then their Pure Grit are very comfy and not so aggressive that you cant run on road in them.
The first generation had poor grip, but I comfortably ran a 40mile trail race in them. The new version reportedly has a much better grip, but still looks to have a reasonably cushioned midsole.

Yeh, I take it that the adrenaline asr are built around the road version. I was thinking more neutral shoe rather than a support shoe. That said, they are described as 'a long running trail shoe for comfort' I may try a pair at my lrs. Thanks for the recommendation.

I've used the Nike Pegasus Trail version. It's a bit of a hybrid shoe. Plenty cushioning if that's what you need, with slightly deeper lugs than the road version. Got over 800 miles from my last pair and I'm not built like a racing whippet..!

Got something to say?
