If you like to run off road.. or would like to give it a try and wonder what the options are for running shoes UK wide then here are a few tips and a quick look at some of the shoes available. You are mainly looking for shoes that give increased traction, toe bumpers on the uppers and probably reinforced stitching too. These shoes will often have less cushioning than trainers used for road running as, in general, off road is a softer surface.
Hi -Tec offers the V-Lite Infinity Pro HPI, which have a seamless upper that is reinforced with a see through overlay, its sole gives traction in wet conditions and is a good option if you happen to have a mix of off road and road running as part of your run.
Brooks have the Cascadia 4 its main features are a breathable upper that will keep the rain out, but let your feet breathe; a wide last for extra stability and if you are concerned about the environment the mid sole is constructed from a material designed to break down 50 times quicker in a landfill.
Salomon's S-Lab 2XT Wings are very lightweight and comfortable off road running shoes, likened to wearing slippers. Breathable, bouncy and responsive the shoe gives moderate pronation control and ortholite footbeds reduce odour whilst hugging the foot.
This is by no means an exhaustive list and some shopping around may be required to find the perfect shoe for you - especially if you are looking for discount running shoes.
