I need advice as I'm stuck to what kind of shoes I need next. I run currently in Newtons (so practice forefoot landing) but have returned to the trail now and have found them inadequate for the mud due to all the rain we've recently had. I have barefoot trail shoes in which I run regularly (New Balance Minimus and Vivobarefoot Breatho) but I haven't yet built up to do all my runs in barefoot shoes. Nornally on longer runs I take a backpack with me and change shoes so run in barefoot ones some of the way. I need something that will be suitable for off road (muddy footpaths, shingly track, etc.) that will be in between Newtons and barefoot support wise. I have looked at Inov8, x-talon 190 I think it was and it is a one arrow shoe, 3mm, not sure whether this is on the right level for me, not sure how many mm Newtons are in heel but would think around 6. I need a grip on these as running off road mostly, if anyone can help with advice would be grateful.
