Overall: Really chuffed with these shoes. Bought them because they were a much better fit than the more "hard-core" trail shoes and I don't regret it. Grip is excellent in wet and muddy conditions. They drain water really quickly which has been a real asset this winter for runs in the New Forest. They do all of this and give real comfort. They are well cushioned which is good for hard trails or road sections and they give good support.
