    Hi, I'm looking for recommendations for mens trail running shoes. Budget is £60 maximum, but cheaper would be fine. I'm size 9 if it matters at all.

    What fit my size 9 feet are not guaranteed to fit yours. Running shoes are a very personal thing and I avoid making recommendations to others because of that.

    FWIW my I bought my trail shoes in the sales for a tad under £60 and they are one of the Salomon brand.

    Stuff I have tried and liked,

    Asics Gel Kakuna (Decathlon Exclusive)
    Ran 500 or so km in these - work ok on packed trail, road (although like a lot of trail shoes they are firm) and the odd bit of mud. Cost me £45 in their sale.

    Adidas Galaxy Trail (£30 in a Sports Direct sale)
    Ok, the plus is their cushioning which makes mixed road & trail a bit more comfortable (on the road bits). I found myself oddly between sizes, settling on a 9.5, but they're probably a little large. I tend to use them as my long runs shoe now.

    Others;
    My friends like the Kalenji trail shoes, although they seem a bit firm to me. Also heard good things about the Karrimor trail shoes, albeit from someone who runs in anything at all :smile:

    As John says the Decathlon shoes do have quite firm soles, which might be good or it might be bad, depends on what kind of terrain you'll be running on.

    I over pronate and find that they're good for upto about five miles on mixed terrain, after that my calves tend to tighten up a bit.

    If you're lucky though, like Mrs Stephec was, you'll find Decathlon selling off last years Salomons for £55.00.
