choosing the right trail running shoes

For those of you who are not total running geeks, we include the ‘drop’ in all our trail running shoe descriptions. The image above gives you an indication of what this means, but in simple terms, the drop is a measurement of the height difference between the heel and the ball of the foot. There are pros and cons of different drop heights, so if you’re unsure, come in and have a chat with our friendly staff.
