  • Hi there. Don't actually understand the difference between racing/racer trainers, but what shoes you should wear for ultras really depends on (1) the terrain and (2) personal preference, usually figured out by trial and error.

    If you're doing a road ultra, probably just wear the same road shoes you'd use to run a marathon. If you're going off-road, you'll probably do better in some sort of trail shoe. But some folk run off-road in road shoes and get on okay so like I say, personal preference and trial and error...

  • thanks  run with dogs

  • I'd wear red ones. Red ones are the fastest I think. Or green ones. But only at the weekend.
  • Lirish, would red shoes with green laces give the maximum benefit?image

  • I thought you would choose green every time Lirish!

  • anyway i think we shoouldnt fail to mention the importance of socks not clashing with the trainer choice anyway, surely THATS  more important?

  • Red with green laces? Eugh, now you're just being silly Lou, if you're to going to take this discussion seriously there's no point.



    WiB green for the weekends. And for best, don't forget that. But red otherwise. Unless you're running on the road, in which case white. Or black.
  • wait! you can only wear white socks as well for road running!!.....and i thought it was  BLACK shoes for road and WHITE for best , surely....

  • I have got this all wrong!!! no one has even mentioned blue?! Back to the drawing board for me!

  • ....and then theres the bit about which colour road you run on.....

  • Blue will work better on a wet day so  always worth checking the forecast before you put your shoes on.

  • imagenever thought about the weather JF50.....good point there..so what about if its hot? do red stick to the floor?

  • Would it be safest to stick to grey socks?

  • That way you can cope with road and trail in the same event....

  • true Rosemary..mine always end up that way.....maybe you have the answer..the Gold Enigma trainer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LOL, yes, a bit small for even your feet thoughimage

  • it looked life size!!!

  • imagewas it a cute baby trainer sprayed gold?

  • What about yellow ones? Shoes, not socks!

  • Lou, it was a little one about 2 inches long.  Solid plastic. It's very detailed.

    aw rosemary ...i want one of those baby trainers!!

  • I'm wearing my yellow and green trainers with orange laces this weekend as I'm hoping they'll ward off the rain, can't decide which colour socks though!!!
  • Purple! Got to be purple image
  • Ooh I nearly bought some inov8 230's just because they came in purple!!!
  • I'm going to get another pair of Brooks Cascadia 7s, is it bad that I'm struggling to decide which colour?!
  • bad because they will end up covered in mud and all resemble a grey sludge colour anyway

  • im still looking for more of my black nikes...my feet dont work in Nikes of any other colour...*sigh*
