CHOOSING THE RIGHT TRAIL RUNNING SHOE

For those of you who are not total running geeks, we have include the ‘Drop’ for each shoe.  The image to the right will give 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.
