Salomon Trail Running and Hiking Shoes and Apparel
As I look further into trail running, my friend recently introduced me to Salomon trail running and hiking shoes (this link goes to the US site, please visit www.salomonrunning.com and choose your country). I've never tried them but they seem to get great reviews and many people swear by them. My next trail runners may be Salomon.
