Over the last handful of years I have logged many happy kilometres in Asics trail shoes so I was particularly happy when Asics said "yes" to our request for them to support our wee race.
There are a couple of different trail shoes in the Asics range but personally I am a fan of the Fuji Trabuco. Since my podiatrist told me I had the worst pronation she had seen and steered me towards shoes with the maximum support for pronation, the Trabuco was the only one that felt right on me. As a result. these are also the only shoes I have had where I felt confident enough in them to wear a brand new, unworn pair in a race - and not just any race - my first 100 miler!
