A few recommendations when choosing running shoes for the terrain

Are you thinking about new cross country shoes, do you enjoy running off road, in rough, wet terrain, do you race in these conditions? Maybe you will find some of our recommendations useful when choosing the right cross-country shoes:
???? solid non-absorbent upper - it's great to have a comfortable textile, cushioned upper on your shoe, but if you fly into a creek on the first kilometer, forget about comfort - the textile upper immediately soaks up water and the shoe subsequently does not stay on the foot, expands and often weighs twice as much as when dry ????
????low drop, lower cushioning, lower foot position - excellent cushioning and higher foot position also leave on the road! In the field you need to feel the ground, so you need to react in time to what is under your feet, so definitely lower foot position. Keep in mind that in the terrain you go more through the heel, hence the higher drop and super damping. Ankle flexibility and timely reaction, stability, that's what should keep you in the field.
????grip and sole material - standard and commercial rubber, used on shoes, usually has a good parameter of wear, durability of the sole, but not traction (grip) on wet ground. When selecting a cross-country shoe for a rugged, wet environment, choose from shoes that have a special, modified rubber compound designed specifically for use on wet surfaces. You won't need a super shoe, even with a GTX membrane on a commercial classic sole platform (outsole) At the first wet root, you will find that you have bought another shoe for a walk:)
????choose from brands that specialize in this type of footwear. For us it is of course ICEBUG and INOV-8 ????
So let it run and race!!!
