[quote="GrahamCAndy: Well I shouldn't really even have turned up to the Trog, having done a 30 mile bike ride home followed by 4 hours sleep the night before, so I knew it wasn't going to be one of my best performances, but I did OK (18th out of 193). The going was really dry and firm, which made for some fast running (coming down off Edale cross was quite lively) but I'm more accustomed to Kinder top in its "death by chocolate gateau" mode. Good course, although nowhere as good as Edale Skyline.[/quote]

Nice one Graham, that's a good result, esp. considering your previous days activity!

Thanks. After that I slept 10-11 hours a night for four nights!

Have you done much fell racing this year?

Not done much at all this year unfortunately as I'm writing up my PhD this spring/summer so heckuva busy and prioritising as it were.

Hoping to do the Kettlewell race this weekend though if I can blag a lift off a club mate. :)

I've only ever been using Adidas Supernova Control. I'm well into my 3rd pair of them and I absolutely love them.

I like New Balance off roaders for where I live. Do some running on the fells and they are fine.

These are what I use. size 44.5 EU in D width. I also have an insole with a greater arch support inside since I have higher arches than St. Louis.

At the running store I was recommended a pair of Adidas supernova sequence. Does anyone know if these are vegan?

Do you know which model specifically? There seem to be a few different versions. The current crop all seem to be called Supernova Sequnece 2 XXX, where the X's represent some bonus feature, like GoreTex for a winter shoe.
If you have a look at Adidas' web site they give a list of most of the materials and from what I can tell they should be vegan. You can usually look up each material and find information on how it's made and where it comes from. If you can't find the information just email Adidas and ask. If they're not willing to oblige, they don't deserve your business and the running shop should be able to find you an alternative. If they can't, find another shop. :P

Hagard, those shoes are vegan. Honestly, the only shoes I know aren't vegan are those biome's or whatever that use Yak leather.

regardless, the adidas supernova series is awesome. i've had zero problems with mine after switching over from Saucony's.

That sound good! Thanks for the help! A pair of shoes like that would probably do quite a bit for my running, as I was recommended them based on an analysis of my running style, and the old shoes I have are for supinators while the adidas for pronators!!

I have a pair of Inov8 Roclite 320's for off road running - but they hurt my feet badly - I get very sore balls of my feet after a few miles in them, so I'm thinking of getting a pair of these instead:

Has anybody tried them for running? Or are they just a casual type shoe?
Whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right.
