VJ Sport iRock

A seemingly new shoe to the trail and mountain running community, despite being around for a while, but one that is gaining popularity. Being the shoe of choice for World Skyrunning Champion Jonathon Albon gives you an idea of the calibre of this shoe. A narrow fit means it won’t be suitable for all but if it fits then its reputably to be the grippiest shoe on the market today.

Walsh PB Elite

Still handmade in Bolton these shoes were once the firm favourite of fell runners. The uppers are made of fast-drying, water-resistant material, whilst the stiff outsole uses Walsh’s registered pyramid grip pattern. A drop of 6mm gave enough precision for uneven terrain and sufficient cushioning for harder ground.
