"A great example of buying local and getting advice you just can’t get when buying online" - Dave

Went to Colin just before lockdown for some new trails as I thought we may end up in a lockdown. Anyway I asked Colin for a supportive trail shoe that can be used on hard trail, loose stone and light mud but as it’s half a mile to the woods and a mile to the moors I wanted them to be ok on tarmac as well. (Nothing worse than feeling you are running in football boots on tarmac!)

Anyway, Colin recommended La Sportiva Lycan II. Got to be honest - never heard of that model but had some mutants once that were good.

As soon as I tried them on, they felt really comfortable and I have used them on a few runs 4-9 miles and couldn’t be happier.

Great grip in Plymvalley on loose stones and wet mud but comfortable on tarmac sections as well.

Would never have even thought about buying these online so a great example of buying local and getting advice you just can’t get when buying online.

Highly recommend for anyone wanting a hybrid trail and tarmac shoe.

Thanks Colin
