nice shoes (I love my wildwoods in summer) but not really that agressive - current trend from most of the big names in trail shoes is fast/non-agressive soles :( Which is all well and good 'til you're trully off-road (and not on a nicely maintained track)


The Kepler is a nicely maintained track. You could get a wheel chair along most of it. Go for cushioning in a well fitting shoe that does not give you blisters. As long as the shoe has some tread it should be fine for Kepler.

Training however... if you are looking to get out on some interesting trails, get some shoes with decent off road tread!!

I think you are best to get trail shoes. Smiths Sports Shoes has a good sale on its trail shoes at the moment. try checking out http://www.sportshoes.co.nz

I personally like the Asics gel trail sensor.

I would try the Salmon XA Pro 3d Ultra. Its what a lot of athletes are wearing for the coast to coast and off road running events. They have more grip, offer better stability and protection off road.

I hope this kind of setting, they will choose the Adidas AdiSTAR Revolt because this is the shoe I wear. I wear it both for trail and road running. It offers a snug fit, and good feel ,not so much of a trail shoe that you can't wear it on the road.
