running shoes for rocky terrain

Hey guys, quick question. Any of you guys know of any good running shoes for rocky/dirt terrain? I'm in Iraq right now and there are no paved roads so my running shoes are getting tore up.

I second the recommendation for Salomon shoes.

You can also do a search for on a site like Road Runner Sports for trail running shoes.

These shoes typically have harder soles than roadrunning shoes for dealing with rocky terrain.

Check out www.backcountry.com YOU MUST ENSURE YOU ANNOTATE ALL LINKS WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE.for a huge selection of trail runners (and a great return policy and customer service). My personal fave is the Merrell Chameleon Arc Ventilator, but there is no "best" shoe, just the best one for you.

Inov8's are the best trail shoe for pose running, if doing pose matters to you.
