It was time.
Time to buy yet another pair of shoes.
This is something that always scares me, mainly because of the fact that I’m so blisterable, but also because I ‘m always a bit scared that those awesome shoes from those awesome reviews in Trailrunningmag or RunnersWorld or wherever aren’t as awesome as described (for me).
I was and am really happy with my Brooks Ravennas and Cascadia8s, but needed something a bit more aggressive for the fells and proper mud. Perhaps, some day, I’ll also buy some spikes, but for now a more aggressive fell shoe would have to do. So, after doing some ‘research’, I thought that either Salomon Fell Raiser or Inov8 Mudclaw would be great choices for me. So I went to Accelerate in Sheffield, where they really took the time to help both me and René, and eventually I went home with a pair of…
Salomon Fell Raisers!
