|Little toe was "all better" by wednesday On Monday night I thought I was in big trouble.|
I received a pair of Skecher Go Bionic Trail yesterday. THESE seem to have a breathable but pretty impenetrable upper. I really like the standard GoBionic for roads and non technical trail; the GoBionic Trail just came out and having received them yesterday I ran 14 miles in them today. Perfectly comfortable out of the box, no friction spots as the shoes have a big toe box.. I've seen on-line that Merrell has a Goretex version of the Ascend Glove which seems promising for keeping out grit; however what I see on-line lists for $160. The Gobionic Trail costs $80. Go figure. Merrell better watch out, the GoBionic Trail is a hell of a trail shoe and I for one cannot afford $160 for a pair of running shoes.
Here is a photo of the Skechers GoBionic Trail: So far so good. I will take these out for a test spin this weekend to see how they do on steep descents and in keeping out sand and grit.
