Having had much success with trail running shoes, the City trail range are light road shoes designed to be fast and responsive, promote a forward running motion and not overly cushioned or bulky feeling. They have a Quick Lace System that keeps weight down to a minimum and less fiddly to get on and off which could be an advantage if you are a bleary eyed early morning runner! This shoe has Sensiflex TM side panels to support the natural expansion of the foot with the Sensifit system cradles the foot giving great support as you move. Thicker rubber on the foot bed adds extra cushioning especially on hard packed terrain and the Contragrip out sole gives loads of traction. There is plenty going on with this shoe and will make town and city runs a breeze.
