Quality pair of trainers. Use daily for work. Def recommend
This is my second pair now and I love them. Great grip in the wet and mud, lightweight and quick to dry. Great cusion on the sole for walking or running.
Second pair. First pair were the most comfortble off road running shoes I have owned. They will never be as fast as a pair of Innov8s. But they are fantastically durable. Cracking shoes.
Having tried the Helios and found them too narrow and the toe box too shallow, the Akasha are a wider fit but I still went up half a size from my normal. They are noticeably cushioned and I have had no feet issues in my runs yet, the longest being 20 miles. The tongue is very comfortable and the laces, whilst quite short, stay tied at all times. Grip is good but I must admit I was hoping for slightly better on wet rock as this was the surface I bought them for. They are a lot better than my Inov-8 X-Talons and X-Claws on rock though where I was like Bambi on ice. The Akasha deal well with mud up to a point but not as well as the likes of specialist fell shoes like X-Talons which have much more pronounced lugs. I would recommend the Akasha as a good multi-terrain shoe ideal for ultra distances but they are a bit dull to run in and shoes like the X-Talon 200 or Nike Terra Kiger, where you feel much more connected with the surface under your feet, give more of a buzz.
These shoes seemed ideal for some of the terrain round Aberdeenshire (mix of single track paths and hard forest/estate roads but I have now gone up 3 half sizes and they are still too narrow at the front. Should be advertised with warning.
