I'm assuming that as I now have orthotic insoles that I've been advised to use in every shoe I run in, even trail shoes, that picking shoes will now be a slightly easier task as the insoles will always make the shoes feel much the same. This assumption may of course be totally wrong!
I'm not interested in either minimalist or Hoka and from painful past experience I don't find any of the Inov8s very comfy, so I'm wondering what else there is out there... On road I run in Asics Cumulus and Brooks Ghost but much prefer the feel of the Cumulus. Was advised that Brooks Cascadias should be very suitable for me but I'm not sure I want to try them as I'm not overly fond of the Ghosts. Can't find anywhere near me with them in stock so it would be mail order and take a chance.
Was wondering about Asics trail shoes but have been told by quite a few folk that they're nothing special. Need something with a wide toe box. Don't like the Salomon pull-lacing system. Am running a 50+ mile ultra in 5 weeks and need to get something broken in fast! Any suggestions?
