they are ok on bridleways and toe paths etc, but they suck on tarmac if you need to any road miles to get to the trails. and are comedy bad on things like wet wood if you have to cross any bridges.

Especially the 'banana skin on wood' aspect of their soles

Any of the PB trainers/racers really - try a few on.

I was wanting to get the 272, but they seem to have been discontinued as has been said, so most places only have a couple of tiny or huge sizes left in stock.


Mail ordered some Walsh PBs, and they're the weirdest fitting shoes I think I've ever seen. I have narrow feet, but they pinched at the sides, were too long at the front and had an ultra-low heel cup that I was practically stepping out of on the carpet. Totally useless as mud-shoes for me, so sent them straight back.

Yep - you really need to try walshes on before you buy.

The new Mudclaw 300 is not too dissimilar from the 272.
