Topic - Off-road shoes that won't cripple me on tarmac

hokkyokusei - on 04 Jun 2014
Hi all,

I do a mix of road and off-road running. For road use I use Mizuno Wave Alchemy and find them great, I've had multiple pairs. For off-road I have some cheap More Mile Cheviots for my lunch time bimble up to Baildon Moor trig point and a pair of Inov-8 Mudclaws for more serious stuff.

Where I am struggling is that I've been entering more "off-road" races this year, and they all tend to have at least a couple of sections of tarmac in them. I find this crippling wearing either the Cheviots or Mudclaws.

Shoes I've looked at to solve this:
Salomon Fellraisers &
Salomon Speedcross - both feel great in the shop, but have deep tread so don't seem suited, but I know people that love them and say they are comfy on road.
Adidas Kanadias - look good, but can't find anywhere with my size to try on
Mizuno Wave Harriers - not seen any at all!

Does anyone have any personal experience of these shoes, or can anyone suggest an alternative?
