boots

#1
anyone know any boots good for running? Don't need to be great field boots just good runners!

I'm running up to 20 miles/week around various parks in boots and knees are starting to complain at the treatment dished out by the issue clodhoppers.

What's the plan with running in boots anyway?
I'm a PTI with BritMilFit. I started out doing it as a sideline but now I'm doing up to 35 classes a month, each one an hour of charging around a park in boots and my knees and ankles are starting to complain about the lack of shock absorbtion in the issue wellies. Sorbothane insoles have helped a bit, but I think that an investment in decent boots would pay for itself pretty quickly in terms of down-time avoided.

We do Mil-style fitness training for people in various different parks around the UK. especially London (Where i work).

Ah fair enough, I was wondering why they didn't have to be any use for field work.

Altbergs, Lowas, Magnums, there's loads of different lightweight boots available, take your pick!

Personally I've got a pair from www.LeBock.dk that are basically a cross between jungle boots and Magnums.

I don't know whether I could bear to wear a pair of boots so unashamedly waltish! They're obscene! On the other hand they look really good for running...

Thanks everyone! I think it's between the Altberg sneekers and the Adidas "i've just walked off the set of a science fiction movie" Boots. Might have to go for the Adidas for pure comedy value!

These are a good boot http://www.lansdaleltd.com/prod.php/prod/HANGTX[/qu


Hanwag SF GTX are great boots - very similar to Lowas, but are more suited to the field than just for running.

As I posted before, stick with the Altberg Sneekers or Adidas GSG9's. Both great for running but not quite up to strength for the cuds.

The GSG9's are quite radical looking but are as comfy as ferk. Altberg just make great boots, so with either you cant go wrong.

Is it Altberg who will do you a proper custom fitting if you go to the factory?
Yes mate. If you can, go to the factory for a proper fitting - if you cant, you can take the measurements yourself and send them in. Either way they will custom size them for you!!

That weighs heavily in favour of the Altbergs then! :D
