Testers award of the European Big Test Shoes

This year, Kalenji Trail shoes were again among Endurance Trail's favourites at the 2016 European Big Test Shoes.

 

The testers spent a week on Madeira comparing the best brands of running shoes on the market, divided into 4 categories: 'Road & Trail', 'All Tracks/Ultra', 'Mountain Trail' and 'Racing'. Men's and women's models were ranked separately.

 

After a blind static test and dynamic test (on the same route for each model in any given category), the testers chose their favourites. Men's and women's Kiprun Trail XT6 were chosen in the 'All Tracks/Ultra' category, while men's Kiprace Trail 3 were also selected as a favourite in the 'Racing' category'.

 

According to Endurance Trails, men's Kiprun Trail XT6 provide: 'Impeccable grip and cushioning'women's Kiprun Trail XT6 shoes are:'By far best value for money in this selection' (All Tracks/Ultra*), and men's Kiprace Trail 3 are:'Indisputably the best shoes in this category' (Racing*).

 

*All Tracks/Ultra: All types of terrain: rolling, with elevation changes, medium and long distance. Focus on shoes' comfort, cushioning and grip.

*Racing:For trail runners looking for high-performance. Focus on shoes' low weight, balance and propulsion.

    Excellent grip for muddy hills
    Light, Comfortable, Excellent Grip Wife hates the colour

    I recently started trail running and this is my first trail running shoe so I can't compare it to others. However one of my regular routes includes some fairly steep sections through open fields so the going can be muddy after (or during) rain. The soles on these shoes are similar to the grips that you would normally see on walking boots and make slipping and sliding far less of an issue. Despite the chunky soles, the shoes are light and comfortable and I've been able to run 5-10 km trails with no problems.

    These are brilliant
    Grippy and well cushioned Would like a bit more protection from rocks on top

    These were recommended to me by a friend who absolutely loves them (he has ran 100mile ultras in them no problems). My expensive brand other trail shoes just kept splitting after as little as a month (I can get 2.5 pairs of these for the cost!).

    Comfort is excellent, I happily ran very technical V3K in them (15hrs on feet). Ideally I'd like a bit more top of toe protection for the rocks that bounce on top of your foot, but it's a small gripe on an otherwise brilliant shoe.

    One excellent touch is the lace pocket which a lot of the expensive brands don't have. They do feel quite light too.

    So far they're holding up to the elements very well... 200 miles or so and no tears etc. They've been in mud, the sea over mountain adventures.

    Planning on sticking with these for the forseeable.
