Re: Running shoes advice

I asked this before but didn't get a response so, accepting that actual fit is a personal thing:

Has anyone got any personal recommendations for trail shoes?

Has anyone got any personal recommendations for trail shoes for ice and snow?

Thanks

(I don't plan to run on snow and ice in bare feet! )
Massive matter of personal opinion, as said above etc...

I have successfully run in North Face XCR (hedgehog) - good vibram sole and useful as I strike the ground quite hard (i'm fat, but can run a long way). I got a gore tex pair for running out here, but if anything that hinders the shoe's breathability. The latest TNF shoe has evolved in to the "rucky chucky" that I haven't tried, but have heard good things.

The Ultras that I have done have seen a good number of people going for New Balance and especially their specialist MDS shoe.

For next season's snow and ice look no further...

Lastly and for what it is worth I really rate "Run and Become", but that probably is only of use to those of you going back to the UK.

Best of luck
and happy running
