Inov-8 Terraultra G 270 (Graphene) Review | Cushioned Ultramarathon Running Shoes

The Inov-8 Terraultra G 270 was launched in the UK in July 2020 and replaces the Terraultra G 260. Like the G 260, the G 270 is a zero drop trail running shoe designed to be used for even the longest ultramarathon distances. A lot of the features are the same. The Terraultra G 270 still has a broader and rounded toe box, which along with the zero heel to forefoot drop promotes better foot function and good posture. There is room for your foot to spread on impact to... Read More

Inov-8 Terraultra 260 Review — The Terraultra is a brand new shoe in Inov-8’s range. It is available in two versions; the G260 and the 260.

This review is about the Terraultra 260 with no G. The Inov8 Terraultra is a zero drop trail running shoe.... Read More


Inov-8 TerraUltra 260 Review Part 1: Introduction | Inov-8 Trail Running Shoes

Introduction to the Inov-8 TerraUltra 260 — The New Inov-8 TerraUltra 260 is a Zero Drop trail running shoe designed to be well cushioned but still give good ground feel.  The fit is similar to Inov-8’s standard width but with a more rounded toe box to allow the foot to spread better when it touches the floor. This gives the runner better stability, shock absorption and spring from the feet. The outsole has 4mm lugs made from Inov-8’s Endurance Rubber, which is designed to offer both durability and a good... Read More

Altra Superior 4.5 Review | Responsive Zero Drop Trail Running Shoes

The Altra Superior 4.5 is Altra’s most minimally cushioned trail running shoe. It is designed for shorter outings than the Lone Peak 4.5 or Timp 2 and has a faster, more responsive feel. The stack height is 21mm, which is nearly the same as the Altra Escalante Racer… so a kind of Escalante Racer with grip! The Altra Superior range has been on the market for some years now and we have many customers who find them to be the perfect combination of feel for the ground, cushioning and protection....

La Sportiva Jackal Review

The Jackal is the latest edition to La Sportiva’s range of mountain running shoes and is designed for off-road ultramarathons. As John Kelley’s recent Pennine Way Record would testify, the Jackal does this job well! Northern Runner Ambassador Kim Collison has written a review on our blog telling us what a great shoe the jackal is for this mixed off-road type of terrain. You can read it here: However, most of our customers don’t buy a shoe for only one type of running and want a shoe that will... Read More


Topo Ultraventure Review | Low Drop Trail Running Shoes

Topo Athletic Ultraventure Review — Topo’s latest edition to their trail running range is a highly cushioned grippy shoe. Like all Topo shoes, the Ultraventure is designed to work with your feet rather than prevent the natural movement of the foot. To do this all Topo shoes have a broad, rounded toe box that is more foot shaped than the norm. This shape and space lets your feet expand on impact to absorb shock, stabilise you and then spring you into your next stride. The fit of the heel is... Read More


Topo Terraventure 2 Review | Versatile Off-Road Running Shoes | Northern Runner

Having enjoyed running in the original Topo Terraventure, I was quite excited about trying the second version of this shoe. Everybody’s trail is slightly different, so the perfect level of cushion and grip for one runner doesn’t cut it for someone else! The original Terraventure was more of an all-terrain running shoe than a trail shoe for UK conditions. Most of the top brand trail shoes you see are designed in the United States and either it doesn’t rain much over there or nobody runs in the rain! That’s mainly... Read More


Altra Timp 1.5 Review | Zero Drop Trail Shoes | Northern Runner

Altra Timp 1.5 Review Improvements to the Versatile Trail/R2T Running Shoe — The Altra Timp 1.5 is a highly cushioned Zero Drop off-road running shoe. Designed for Ultra marathons or long distance runs, it sits just below the maximally cushioned Olympus and above the more agile Lone Peak in Altra’s trail shoe range. The first thing you notice when you slip your foot into the Timp 1.5 is that your foot relaxes! The shape of the shoe is designed this way, to fit more naturally than lots of other running...
