Grippy trail shoes that work with orthotics

Can anyone recommend some? I have tried mudclaws but they Are too shallow so they slop with my orthotics in and I have tried them in salomon fellcross but unfortunately they are so narrow that I can't get them to lie flat in them image Anyone got other suggestions of shoes to try, looking for fell worthy grip really?

  • I use orthotics with loads of different models of inov8 including mudclaws, but I take the inov8 insole out and then put my orthotics in which I find that really helps... I haven't tried anything except inov8 so can't give you other suggestions. Sorry!

  • My Innov-8 Roclite 318's work just fine with mine.  Done two very muddy trail races and climbed Ben Lomond in mine so far image

  • Do you put your orthotics in the shoe without discarding the innersole?

  • I use the insole in all my shoes with the orthotic.

    You must be used to running in shoes that don't fit properly.

  • Why?  My podiatrist has seen them in several sets of shoes and said if they won't fit with the insole take them out but most do.

  • I take that back - I don't use the insoles in my Asics Gel Cumulus 13's or my Adidas I use for the gym as the insoles are too bulky...

  • Same here. I have the same ASICS and if I tried stuffing an orthotic in with the innersole my heel wouldn't be contained by the heel cup, it sits too high up in the shoe. Blisters on the heel if I tried I'm sure.

  • Thanks for the suggestions, they lOok good Rowland I haven't heard of those before! eta: looks like you can only get them in mens sizes so thats those ruled out!

    I have 3/4 hard insoles so I put them under the shoe insole, bit uncomfy with no insole! image
