Kalenji Elio Feel Trail men's trail running shoes blue
Lightness, flexibility, cushioning
Elio Feel Trail shoes are intended for trail running on trails and paths.
The flex grooves on these running shoes make them lightweight and flexible, which encourages foot motion for a 'natural' stride.
Their low 6 mm drop (in size 43) keeps you close to the ground while also giving you a good cushioning system (CS).
Their wrap-over tongue and flat laces mean they are comfortable shoes.

I went into Decathlon to try on the new Salomon Speedcross 4 and to see what else was available. I tried on all the trail shoes and found the KALENJI ELIO FEEL to be the most comfortable for me and have relatively low heel drop to help me transition away from heel striking. I am used to running in Salomon, brooks, Inov8, so was worried about buying cheapo shoes. I have since put done over 150 miles in the Kalenji and have bought another pair for when these fall apart. The shoes are showing a little ware on the soles and are holding together very well. The Elio feel drain very well after river crossings. They are very cushioned so stay wet but stop squelching underfoot almost immediately. They are pretty much a road shoe with grippy sole so are very comfortable over long distances and supportive on flat trails. The wide sole/heal becomes an issue on more technical trails where you need a narrow tight fitting shoe. I'm no longer a trainer snob. Cheap is cheerful.

I bought these wanting a cheap pair of trainers for kayaking.... I expected them to get wet so didn't want leather. They are comfortable and flexible. They also dry out quickly once wet. They have a good level of grip (especially when wet), and should I need a second pair, I'd buy the same again.
