I have the innov8 trail trailroc 206 (ladies') shoes and love them. I run all sorts - fields, hills, woods, muddy/wet/slippery/gravel trails and have found them to be brilliant. Good grip, really lightweight and comfortable. I'd definitely recommned them!
^^ same with the merrell trail glove, ive put mine through 1000+ miles of everything, they are not too grippy on slippy wet mud, but everything else is fine, they are going to offer the same kind of performance as the seeya though. for less money. What i will add is, that as someone who's ran in vibrams and merrell barefoots on trails, the vibrams can get annoying, in that if a stone or bit of wood chip etc goes between the toes (happens a LOT) you hae to stop to remove it or be very uncomfortable, the trailglove from merrell is very similar to a vibram five finger under foot, and with a big wide toe box,
Its often a compromise with slippy mud, since anything good in that is gonna suck on the road or harder ground.
Thanks all, I´ve been looking again and I really like the trailroc 150. They are (I think) the most minimalistic shoe out there, I also like the Vibram five fingers spyridon
The terrain here in the Málaga province of Spain is really dry but in winter it can get interesting with the river full of water again so it´s quite muddy but theres lots of good mountain tracks and of course the beach.
