Buttermere is now added to the tour and you will not be disappointed!

I'm often asked why I ware trail running shoes as my "go to" Lake District footwear for the fells, even when I'm not running!
For me, outside of winter conditions, the pro's of wearing trail running shoes far outweigh the cons.
Comfortable, quick drying and lightweight are clear benefits. Although no/low ankle support may work against you, depending on the ground!
I suppose it's all about personal choices but for me a good trail running shoe, is all you need to walk or run around the Lake District.
We have found an interesting blog that helps you decided between the pro's and cons of each trail running shoe:
Happy running and wondering's :-) My personal favourite is the Salomon Speed Cross
