New Balance Fresh Foam 17th May 2017 New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v7 Running Shoes

 I was signed up to run the London Marathon in April so it was time for some new road shoes. Sadly a week before the event I learned that due to an administrative error my place had not been...

Mammut Tatlow GTX Approach Shoes 5th Apr 2017 Mammut Tatlow GTX Approach Shoes

Smart and stylish and a long way from the gaudy colours of many other approach shoes, the Tatlow GTX have a leather outer shell with a decent Goretex lining meaning that for the time being at...

Salomon Speedcross Pro 26th Apr 2016 Salomon Speedcross Pro

I’ve reviewed most iterations of the Speedcross range over the past three or four years, almost always opting for them as my favoured shoe for training and longer racing. The Pro is no...

Inov-8 X Talon 200 25th Nov 2015 Inov-8 X-Talon 200 Running Shoes

Just like 5.10 are my favourite rock climbing shoes because they have the stickiest rubber, Inov-8 are my go-to running shoes for the same reason. Perhaps it says something about my climbing and...

Five Ten Tennies 21st Jul 2015 Five Ten Tennie Approach Shoe

SealskinzSocks 23rd Jun 2015 Sealskinz Socks

I'd heard mixed reviews about Sealskinz socks. Some said they work, some said they don't. Essentially the are waterproof socks. They keep the water out by means of a Goretex-like membrane which (,...

Edelrid Crocy 7th May 2015 Edelrid Crocy Oasis Kids Climbing Shoes

It's all too common to see young kids climbing in a pair of trainers. The common thinking seems to be that kids feet grow so quickly that it's not cost effective to buy specialist shoes as they...

Zamberland lady Lite GTX RR 28th Apr 2015 Zamberlan Lady Lite GTX RR Walkng Boots

I’ve only ever owned one pair of walking boots prior to these (I was late to the game) and they lasted for 15 years and gave me everything I asked of them, so my next pair had a lot to live up...

Scarpa Zen Pro 21st Apr 2015 Scarpa Zen Pro Approach Shoes

Almost my favourite Approach Shoes ever. But not quite. I don't usually start a review with a summary, but they are that good that I thought they deserved it. In essence they have everything an...

Salomon Trail Gaitor Low 14th Apr 2015 Salomon Trail Gaiter - Low

Having done a fair amount of running in the snow this winter I wanted to try a system to keep the said cold stuff out of my shoes, and in particular, to keep it from balling up on top of the...

Inov 8 Mud Claw 300 1 27th Mar 2015 Mud Claw 300 - Inov-8

Adidas Terrex Solo Approach Shoes 21st Nov 2014 Adidas Terrex Solo Approach Shoes

Introduction It took a while, but the acquisition of Five Ten by Adidas has finally resulted in some Adidas shoes carrying Stealth rubber. The Terrex Solos are the first of these that i have had...

Salomon XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX W 5th Sep 2014 XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX® W Running Shoes - Salomon

At first I found the Saloman quite stiff to wear around the ankle but actually that is part of the durable nature of the shoe and has caused no problems. The lace system means there is always a...
