I am looking to invest in a pair of trail shoes and was wondering if you guys had any advice to give me before I purchase a pair?

There's another thread on here asking a similar question, so probably worth taking a look at that as well. I have Brooks Cascadia for trail but tbh they are best when it's dry-ish & they don't mush like slippy wet stones or rock as I found out to my cost!!! I also have Inov8 Roclites which are mush more grippy but not as forgiving on the old feet (for me anyway as I have a few foot probs). I do prefer them though. Hope that helps. I'm sure others will add their piece & then you will be thoroughly confused!!! :-)

The Adidas Kanadia always gets a mention in this sort of discussion

It's a cheap trail shoe (£30-£40 from Sports Direct) but it is a small fit - most people go up at least 1 if not 2 sizes

I've had a pair and they served me well as a first trail shoe

Simple most improtant thing when buying shoes is make sure they are comfortable and suit you. I'm a great believer that there is no 'best shoe' , just whats best for you . Hence so many opinions.

The recent thread. :-)
