While they may look similar, trail runners and road runners are quite different breeds. Road runners are mostly flat on the outsole giving you a lot of traction on flat surfaces but not much grip for anything else. Trail shoes on the other hand are designed for varied terrain. They usually have bigger lugs (knobbly tread) and different rubber compounds on the outsole which allow you to stick to whatever the trail throws at you. The uppers are usually tougher than their road runner counterparts using durable rip stop materials and rubber toe caps to protect your feet from pesky sticks, that sometimes look worryingly like snakes.
