    When it comes to running on trail, TNR isn’t really the first thing I hear (Usually Salomon). I’m reading and watching reviews of its shoes now and I find them somewhat impressive.

    I’m new to trail running by the way and I have yet to run my second trail half-marathon.

    For a newbie (on trail) such as myself, do you think TNR would be a good start at acquiring trail running shoes (I want to get door-to-trail shoes)? I’m thinking of getting Salomon’s XR Crossmax but I want to explore other options.

    Justin the answer to this question depends largely on your foot shape/mechanics, your running style, your mileage, and the aggressiveness of your terrain. Since you are new to trail running, I recommend finding a bricks-n-mortar running store with super-knowledgeable staff and a deep range of trail shoes, and spend some time there trying everything on. Run around in them. Ignore brand, and find the pair that just feels right on your feet. Once you’ve determined what ‘works’ for you, then you will be able to better gauge alternatives by reviews.

    Okay, I see. Thanks a lot!
