It’s hard to just say, oh so and so is the best shoe; go for that. This is because every obstacle course runner will have there own preference and favourites. Also, what might be a great OCR shoe for one person might feel very average to another.

We used the same criteria as in the previous section to select the one’s we think could be great as OCR running shoes.

Best OCR Running Shoes Conclusions
Finding the best OCR running shoe is trial and error for beginners. It sometimes means trying a few brands and seeing what works best for you. When I’ve bought trail running shoes in the past, that just didn’t seem right after a few weeks. I would still use them or find a use for them.
If you are new to obstacle course racing or have just signed up for your first event, I would suggest picking a trail running shoe rather than a specialised OCR shoe. There is no need to blow big money on a shoe that might get little use or feel right personally for you.

Later on down the line, if you have caught the OCR bug, you could then invest in a more specialised pair of shoes.
Ultimately the answer as to what is the best OCR shoe is personal. Still, I hope you have learned something new in this guide. I’m sure to find your perfect race shoe in no time.
