    The 'fell running' page on the Walsh site has a video - it's very nicely done:

    To answer the OP, my personal preference is to wear my road shoes on most hard packed paths & use fell shoes when itís rough, muddy etc.

    Eee wise words Mr Wheeze. Im thinking of getting some Walshes but am rather heavy - is there much difference between the Trainer PB and the and the Ultra in cushioning? Although I realise there's not much in either. I seem to remember having a pair in the past but had problems with my heels popping out, although I don't think I laced them up right using the double lace hole lock thingy. They are about half the price of Inov8/Salomons.

    [QUOTE=Daletownrunner;654172]It appears to be the same for all sports now, marketing hype to sell the best(I.e. most expensive) kit, I was reading a Cycling Weekly review on a Carbon fibre Holdsworth bike at the weekend, it was a really nice bike, far superior to anything I raced on in the early 90ís, the reviewer rated it but said it wasnít good enough to race on which was absolute rubbish, it seems that now unless is over £5K in cycling itís just fit for Sportives, nice things are nice, ie Graphene shoes, Pinarello Dogmaís etc etc but not essential, I do recall from my racing days that quiet often the guy on an old bike, with old kit was the fella to watch as he was the person putting the miles in.
    Essentially what anyone can do in an all singing all dancing super modern running shoe, they can do in a Walsh itís all down to hard work

    No difference in cushioning between PB trainer, Ultra & Extreme versions. All pretty rigid soles, with upturned toe. PB Racer has next to no midsole & is the only Walsh with any difference in cushioning.

    On sizing, I go half-full size up from Inov8 in a Walsh (half for racing; full for everything else & thicker winter socks). I find my heel stays in place when I use the top offset eyelets. I just lace mine normally, passing last part of laces through the label on tongue to hold it in place.
