    This was really helpful. Thank you for writing this. I do most of my running on pavement, but once spring rolls around I’m hoping to get more into trail running this year. I think it will help my mental health to get more time in nature while exercising. I will definitely need a new pair of shoes, so this guide was perfectly timed. I’ll be bookmarking to come back to it. Thanks again!

    Hi,

     Thank you very much for sharing with us such an important blog. If I did not read this blog I can not find the details about “Trail Running Shoes”. This blog will be very much helpful for the runners. The most interesting thing I just learn from here is trail running is not the same as the more natural street running. I will definitely share this blog with my friends.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      It is great to hear about the benefits of the article.

      You talk about the difference between trail running shoes and street running shoes, called to road running shoes too. The main difference is in the composition.

      When you run in the road running shoes, the main idea is that you are focused on the speed. Because of it, these shoes are making of more lightweight material as part to maximize your speed comparing to trail running shoes.

      But when you are running in the landscape, for example on rocky grounds, uneven pavements, etc, you need more support. So the shoes are more massive and focus on let you have as much support and protection as possible.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Hi and thanks for a great review. Honestly, I did not know about trail running shoes, but it makes perfect sense. They have to be different from running shoes, they have to withstand all these rocky roads, uneven surfaces, mud and etc. Very informative and useful review. Thanks a lot.

    Hi Holly,

    Thank you for the Trail and running shoe comparison. I never compared them before, and I mostly bought mine for running on pavement. I didn’t like the rough trail tread because it picks up the dirt in bigger hunks and makes a mess indoors if you forget to take them off. However last spring I learned why the tread is so different. I took a trail around a park where I run on pavement, and it was still muddy, and i slipped and went down. Nothing hurt but my pride, but I was muddy from the experience. I will have trail shoes next year!

    My search for trail shoes brought me to your site. You have a nice selection and the detailed descriptions are very helpful as well.

     I like the New Balance Shoes, and noticed they are a bit cheaper compared to the Salomon shoes. Do you have any experience with the Salomon shoes? Are they worth the extra money? 

    Thank you for introducing me to the salomon brand.

    Chas

      Hi, Chas and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      The prices have an extensive range. New Balance trail running shoes cost, can we say, from 29-280 dollars. Salomon trail running is, we can tell, between 60-380 dollars.

      In both cases, you can find cheaper and more expensive than I mention. But this is all question of quality and design, and both brands famous of both. So I would say that both brands are fair about the prices.

      But so I can answer you I would need to know which items you had in mind. The possibilities about which shoes you have in mind are so many. You can both send me an email here or let me know in these comments.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    It makes a lot of sense why trail running shoes should be different from the regular ones. The last time I used my conventional running shoe for a trail event, it totally tore off the padding and literally turned my pink shoe into dirt black. I could never restore it to its original look or comfort and hence, had to throw it away. So it’s always good to have two different type of shoes if you are ever thinking of hitting the adventurous ground.

      Hi, Cathy and thank you.

      Yes, you are right. Runners run now much more on a different surface than before.

      To be more precie, runners have always run all over but now are so much more selection in the running. We have organized mountains running, ultrarunning, hill, etc. Both for being in good shape, competition or just, but very important, to enjoy running and the landscape.

      Because of that, the shoe brands have stressed more to a made product with this or that surface in mind as the stress on the shoes is different when you, for example, in the mountains or on the road.

      So like you say if you are running in the forest and the streets/roads, it is very wise to have 2-3 different running pairs with this in mind.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Great explanations :).This helps a ton!

    An excellent and informative article about trail running shoes. I like to run on different terrains. It’s never the same. I choose trail running shoes that give me protection and stability.  I’m not a fan of the waterproof upper layer because my feet sweat more. Good running shoes will really help to make more enjoyed running in nature.

    My other favorite shoe is Nike air max, but unfortunately, they’re not designed for mountain use and will fall apart quickly exposed to the wilderness. I picked up Salomon shoes when I switched from hiking boots to trail runners environments.

    Have a nice day,

    Leo

      Hi, Leo and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      It is critical to find out what shoes fit your body and running style best. Luckily we are all different so what suits one does not necessarily match other.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Yes, I agree with you. The trail running shoes are different from the road running shoes. The materials are strong and made up of durable materials. I love fitness and trail running is one of my favorite. Why? Because, am moltivated more with nature. With that environment, there is vartually no issues I can’t solve. I could remember the first I went on the race, the poor me put on a thight shoes which ended up causing irritation to my leg. I have since then learnt my lessons. This review is fascinating. Thanks for sharing

      Hi, NiceAngel and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      There has been outstanding and fast development in running shoes. So now it is much easier to find shoes which fit in where and how you run and what to provide best for your body.

      So the best thing is to have in mind on which surface you usually are running and then find out what fits best for your body.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
