As soon as you mention muddy hill running and 10k trail races the fellcross wins hands down, the Slabs more of an ultra shoe so doesn`t feel anything like as nimble over the sort of distances you have in mind...

Fellcross. I've two pairs of these as the first pair (used exactly one year ago) were so good. The 2nd are so far untouched and the first pair are just about to go for a run. The main difference I notice between Fellcross and trail shoes is Fellcross grip through mud the way normal trail shoes fill the tread and slide about.

Great, but what about X-Talon 212`s or the mighty Oroc 280`s...

I avoid running on hard flat surfaces with these shoes if I can. The main reason is that with such tiny contact points on the tread, not only is there a lack of grip, but the level of wear; from dry roads, can be quite severe. As a result, I only use these shoes in wet conditions, especially when training.

aha yeeah there too much bloody choice iv had roclite 285's and mudclaws in the past

 

but i found the mud claws fell apart quickly

i treid a pair of x-talon 212's on in up and running had a little run on the tredmill  with them , really ilked them and nearly bought them

 

then someone reccomended the slab 5's , spoilt fo choise is the trouble

iv not seen those oroc 280's they look wicked , dam its between these and the fellcross now , ....
