Is there anywhere a list that says something like 'of you wear x brand/model of shoe for road running then y will be a good idea as a trail/fell shoe?'

That would make my life much easier. Currently thinking of buying a pair of inov8s because they are orange!

I'd love a website to tell me what shoes to purchase. I went for inov8s as doing loads of web research, it was indicated it had a wide toe box - great for my fat feet. However bought a pair of k-swiss and these seem to work even better!

I think the surfaces are too different for that to be meaningful, I tried a few off road shoes from the major road shoe manufacturers before realising that they don't have a clue about grip and discovering Inov8

This site mostly tracks prices but also tells you which shoes from other manufacturers are similar (bottom right in this example). fortsu.co.uk

I realise I've answered a different question - sorry.

Thank you - interesting site.

I went for Salomon Speed Cross 3s and a nice Gore goretex jacket to go with them - who said running was a cheap sport?

Got something to say?
