has anyone tried these?
am currently using merrell trail glove, but they do not have super grip when its really muddy. Was thinking of trying the Inov8 baregrip as an alternative in the trail barefoot shoe category due to a recent write up i read, but wondered if anyone has actually tried any and what your opinion was? lots of money to spend out if they dont suit a wide foot barefoot/minimalist runner
MM - I have a pair, they are great shoes. Very comfortable and I have wide feet as well. I have not found a shoe that has superceeded it with regards to grip in muddy conditions. It is also a zero drop shoe with no midsole so should suit your minimalist/barefoot target.
thanks WIB! most helpful.
I use them and love them. They are brilliant in muddy conditions used them instead of my cross country spikes last session and at no stage did I miss the spikes.
I have used them on an off road marathons and an ultra marathon with a mix or surfaces (from ankle deep mud to tarmac) and didn't regret my shoe choice.
thanks guys, very helpful! i was thinking of getting them from wiggle anyway and they have a great returns policy, so should be able to change sizes if i get the wrong one.
i dont tend to run trails that have much in the way of tarmac sections so hopefully they wil lbe fine!
I use Inov-8, but not those.Just waiting for the new MudClaw 300's to become available, as my MC 330;s are jiggeredhttp://www.peteblandsports.co.uk/products/inov-8-mudclaw-300-aw12.htm?brand=1

I had that issue with a pair. Sent the photos to Inov-8 and they sent a replacement pair.
Really? The mesh on my Mudclaws are strting to fray where it joins the rand. Only 6 months old, so it's a shame as the soles are still perfect. Bought them from Amazon though for a good discount.
These are very comfortable shoesby the way for off-road running and can cope with short distances of harder surface.
Yes, just emailed them to ask if this was a know issue and sent them a link to some photos. They came back asked for a few details and sent a replacement pair.
