    Good all round shoe

    Anybody any thoughts on shoes for general bodding around, i.e. trails, road, fell, beach. Most of my running is on a variety of terrain interspersed with road sections to get to the good bits, Iíve noticed a store in town has the Speedcross Vario which looks a decent shoe, anyone had any experience, am I going to scrub the soles off overly quickly on my road sections or are they fairly hard wearing, I notice that they are marketed as a bit of an all rounder, any other suggestions would be good, spent yesterday evening slip/ sliding in a pair of road shoes as my trusty old el cheapo New Balance trail shoes have given up the ghost i.e. Iím sick of stones coming through the holes

    I use La Sportiva Bushido as my day-to-day shoe for all training.... road/treadmill/track/grass/trail. Although they are billed as a mountain shoe.

    Not much cushioning if you are used to road shoes, but a fantastic shoe. The La Sportiva Akasha is also good and has more cushioning.

    Salomon speedcross 4 are my general purpose off-road shoes with enough cushioning to make them usable on road sections too. I love them so much, I have 2 pairs on the go at any one time. Some find them a bit narrow though so try before you buy.

    Saucony Peregrine 7 are great all-rounders - comfortable, reasonably well cushioned, 4mm drop, grippy sole on pretty much everything except mud and can be had for £60.

    Probably the speedcross, as well.

    I've been using the NB Vazee Summit trail the last year or so. Great all rounder and good trip on most terrain apart from mud. I find them very like the old La Sportiva Crosslite- my all time favourite all rounder.

    For the money, these look excellent for an everyday training shoe. Not much info to be found on the interent, so I'm presuming they must be newly released? Their clothing is excellent.
