>Gears and Wears>An in between shoe...
Hello folks, quick question. I have been running with Merrell Trailgloves for about a year (4 miles, 4 times a week, with about half of that light trail running in AZ desert). Previously I had been using Mizuno Waverider 13's. I am now looking for recommendations for something in between the two very different shoes...
i am a skinny, fairly tall guy with a fairly neutral form. Thanks for your advice.
The Altra Lone Peak? It's zero drop and a bit of cushion.
Brooks Pure Grit (4 mm drop, light weight, med cushion)
Salomon Sense Mantra-only mentioned these because just beginning to test for vendor. very light trail runner. like them so far but for my size they run abit long & abit narrow., otherwise I like them after 2 short trail runs. if you are avg or narrow width try them 1/2 -1 size smaller because of the length.
both of the above have a more "hybrid" type outsole that may work better on pavement than more aggressive trailrunners.
Salomon XR Mission may also work good for light trail running/pavement combination. wide toe box compared to most Salomons
both the Manatra & Mission may have a higher heel to toe drop than what you are looking for ???
Pearl izumi n1. Either trail or rd version. Nice and light. Very breathable upper and quick turnover. 6mm drop.
