Video: What’s the Difference Between Trail and Road Shoes?

Our friends at REI continue their ongoing series of videos that take a look at trail running and the gear we use in the outdoors. This time out, they take an in-depth look at the differences between trail shoes and road running shoes, which on the surface may seem like similar animals, but in reality they can be quite different. If you’re looking for the right shoes to meet your needs as a runner, this video can help. Plus, it’s just plain interesting to see how designers take different approaches to match the surface conditions.
