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! )
We all obviously missed this the first time round.

My favs are Montrails Masochists but you'll struggle to get them local to Zurich (good reason to visit Chamonix) they are my most responsive trail shoes, with a great grippy sole that give me loads of confidence to fly on technical trails, but are also fine on the sections of tarmac often encountered somewhere in the run.
Have some asics with metal studs in for ice that i picked up cheap last winter and ice bugs do a whole winter shoe range (in funky colours). Or you can get various pull on anti slip devices from most of the usual places once it gets a bit colder.
Agree with the don't bother with goretex, waste of time, and adds unnecessary weight. It's just a marketing thing.
