Trail Running Shoes
Trail running shoes at active feet have been selected to ensure we have the best available support across several brands, with shoes ranging from ‘gateway’ (part road, part trail) to lightweight to heavy duty and all shoes in between. Muddy surfaces, spindly rocks, boulders, sand & gravel present challenges to ‘traditional’ running shoes, for which they fail to cope beyond the most mild terrain. Specific characteristics such as rock shields, insulation, grip and lace systems all facilitate more enjoyable and safer running when we head off road.
Trail running has been on a boom cycle of recent times and we hope/expect this will continue. As Podiatrists, we love it of course, because of the variations in terrain, the natural impact protection for your body from natural surfaces, and reduction in postural risk from the same repetitive harder surfaces of road running. Salomon have emerged as a major market leader specifically in this space, and combined with trail shoes from Saucony, Mizuno, Asics and Brooks, we have the combination of shoe choices to suit all terrain, foot type, and mileage.
Width Key for footwear
Many of the shoes we stock are available in wider widths. If they are not available online, we may be able to order them in for you! So please contact us if you would like more information.
