WHAT ARE THE BEST TRAIL RUNNING SHOES?

Shoes are undoubtedly the most important piece of running kit, as the right pair can help to enhance performance, prevent injury and provide comfort during exercise.

There are many factors to consider; size and width the most obvious and crucial, but also understanding how we run and make contact with the ground (pronation), the terrain and distance we intend to cover, how much we’re willing to spend and of course, good old-fashioned personal preference.

The key factors are comfort, grip, cushioning, breathability, support, protection and durability. It’s up to us to decide which of these factors we consider to be most important, so that we can then find the right shoe based on our chosen preference/s.

After testing and reviewing a huge variety of trail shoes this year, my top recommendation would be the inov-8 TERRAULTRA G 270, available in a choice of three different colourways (Green & Black/Black/Blue & Yellow). In my opinion, this is currently the best all-round trail running shoe on the market.
