I've had these shoes in the past and remembered them fondly so when I needed to replace my latest trail shoes and couldn't be bothered to shop around I just got these again! Rock+Run were very helpful when I needed to change up a size! (I've done a lot of running since I last had akashas and my feet have 'splayed'!) Incidentally I have a couple of friends who have loved this shoe too. I think it's quite versatile in that it's a good mountain/technical trail shoe but I'm happy on long hardpacked bridleways too, on account of the lovely cushioned insole. The only issue - and I had this with my previous pair too - was that the cushion on the achilles seems quite bulky. I haven't had a blister from it but it does feel slightly odd when I first put them on. Not enough to put me off the shoe though.
I still got trench foot and blisters at Lakeland 100 (2018) but I finished, and that was an achievement for a back of pack runner like me when 49% didn’t. These shoes have great grip and are comfy. Sometimes the conditions are just too rubbish for even the best.
This is my second pair of the Ashaka. The first pair got me though UTMB 2017. Great grip and comfort. Service great, arrived quickly as as expected. First time buyer from Rock & Run so pleased.
