First pair of trail shoes, photo attached as per forum (friendly) rules πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸΌπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Following advice from the forum, I have invested in my first pair of trail shoes. My local Parkrun is on National Forest land so muddy, slippy etc this time of year, and I am not very sure-footed at best of times.

I looked on line and visited a couple of chains to try on, but nothing fitted. As I have a broad foot I ended up going to my usual local independent running shop, and was not disappointed! Not in the sale but I got 20% discount. I'm a happy bunny and am planning to run by the river shortly to give them an outing!

  • It's not in my nature to comment on shoes. But I've broken so many of my old habits so what the hell I'm going to say it !

    Nice shoes !

  • Oh they are lovely!

  • Oooh they are fab Jacs !

    Happy Trail Running :-) xxx

  • Jacs, how are you getting on with these? I have a broad foot, not wide, just broad and need plenty of toe wiggle room. Fancy the Peregrine but just wanted some first hand feed back on them. Is it the version 7?

    Thanks

  • Hi MW.

    I would say don't go for these! No wriggle room at all for the toes. I ran 3k, got dead feet so took them back. Left the mud on them too! I was not a happy bunny.

    I am thinking of going for a mans shoe, as they come in D fit as standard. It all depends on size though as few make a mans shoe in a size 6. Also need to check the heel fit as some men's are wide here too.

    Good luck!

  • My normal (and only) running shoes are men's due to the width and they fit like a glove. Do that heel lock thing with the laces and that helps secure the heel nice and tightly
