Light, responsive shoe with great flex and grip, gives you a fantastic feel for the trail... Salomons best shoe for snow - mud...

GREAT in the snow & mud,was turned on to these by a mountain biker,he wasn't wrong,a good,light but sturdy shoe,plenty of grip,they've been a godsend in the snow.
Would definitely recommend them to anyone starting out trail running.

I would endorse what everyone has said. I do a lot of off road running and these a great winter shoes. One thing that has not been mentioned is that because the bottom of the shoe is flat (but with rubber studs)along with having great grip it is much better at shedding mud than any other trail shoes I have tried.
The shoes although not waterprooof seem to shed water well. The speed lace system makes it easy to keep them tight when the mud is trying to suck them off but easy to loosen them when you feet start to swell.
There feels to be less forefoot cushioning than with some Salomons, however I have run up to 30m in them although they are probably more suited to mid distance running.

Got a pair of these last week and first run was across the fields through a lot of sucking, clay mud.. they were great. I was running in the dark with a tiny torch so did not have much time to adjust my stride for obstacles etc but I did not have one slip or hairy moment in them.
Now I can see what all the fuss was about regarding these trainers. V easy to clean too as the rubber studs are spaced well and mud just shakes off.
