You Asked: Pavement to Trail Running Shoes

You asked, "I am looking for a great running shoe that goes from pavement to trail with ease. I was hoping to spend around $100. Any ideas?"



It sounds like you need a supportive shoe that is not too heavy but that is also durable enough to handle a few bumps along your run. Adrenaline ASR 4 ($95.00) from Brooks Running may be just what you need. It looks more like a running shoe (not as bulky as a typical trail shoe), but could hold its own on a smoother trail (more supportive than a street shoe). It features a higher durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole built to last, and the softshell is made to repel water and transfer moisture, so soggy surfaces (trail or pavement) won't slow you down. What's more? It's $95, just five dollars under your budget. Buy it directly from BrooksRunning.com.

I love my North Face Arnuva 50s. They seem to be the perfect balance of trail and pavement running shoes.

I do a lot of pavement to trail and back again running, and I just LOVE my Adidas Supernovas. The tops are mesh, so they breathe really well, and there's lots of well-placed cushioning in the bottoms, as well as soles that are great on all terrains. They cost me around 110 Euros (I'm an expat), which is more than $100, but they've been super comfortable and supportive since the first day I wore them.
