THE PERFECT SHOE FOR WHEN IT GETS REALLY GROTTY OUT THERE

lightweight and tons of grip in the mud.
don't find they last all that long, not too comfy when on road sections of courses but guess thats not what they are made for.
Excellent shoe will but another pair when these die.

AS PREVIOUSLY STATED IDEAL FIRST XC SHOE.

Grip, and good on descents.
Mesh soon wears through and holes appear above toes. Tendency for sole to come away from upper. (Even after stuffing them with newspaper when wet and then allowed to dry out naturally). Your friendly cobbler will glue them back for you but when this occurs after low mileage one questions either the design or the manufacturing quality.
Mud builds up under arch with some types of soil and only a quick diversion through a handy stream seems to resolve this.
I had two pairs now. Unless there are some significant changes I can't see me buying another pair. I will consider the many alternatives now on offer in future

GOOD FIRST XCTY SHOE

Light but sturdy
Huge blisters after first run (should have worn plasters)
No that the shoe is worn in, am very pleased with performance. The grip is perfect for most conditions.

NO NONSENSE QUALITY FELL SHOE

Very grippy on most surfaces (except wet rock!), and great through the mud. I wear mine for fell race sand xc's.
Studs can get clogged with mud a little.
Fantastic. Feel very stiff and rigid when you first put them on for every run, but after a minute or so they loosen up and feel great.
