ROAD RUNNING

Road running shoes are perfect for anything on tarmac, pavements, parks and track. Normally found with a more breathable upper than trail and fell shoes plus a smoother outsole to help with traction on harder flat surfaces such as slippy pavements. See all our road running shoes here

Trail Running >>

TRAIL RUNNING

Trail running shoes, can be found with a variety of different outsole patterns and lug depths with options for well packed trails, single track and man made paths. Some trails shoes come with a rock plate to help protect your feet from sharp rocks and debries. See all our trail running shoes here

 

Fell Running >>

FELL RUNNING

Fell running shoes normally have less cushioning than trail shoes as they are more likely to be used on softer, open ground making them a lighter more responsive shoe which can help you move over rough ground easily. Found with deep lugs on the sole to help grip on wet and muddy ground. See all our fell running shoes here

Kids Running >>

Kids Running

Just as important as running shoes for adults are shoes for your children. They need space in the toe box for their feet to spread, and a lower drop to allow their feet to move naturally and to help reduce the risk of injury. See all our kids running shoes here.
