Dog walks provide a modest testing ground for some new gear. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been using my Hi-Tec Trail Eruption and Inov8 Roclite 320s trail shoes to see what will best suit my next trip (early July). I’m coming to the conclusion that the Roclites are more comfortable. I barely notice that they are on my feet. They are similar to my Fastpackers in that regard. The Hi-Tecs are more “supportive” and stiffer. They give me a slight ache in my right foot sometimes. Obviously the real test will be when I take them out on the hills.
