Someone must love it, but not for me.

Looks pretty.
Heavy, inflexible, awful off-road, with a foot too far off the ground to be stable, and a wide sole designed to twist your ankle about. Plus some weird arch 'support' thing going on just to muck things up a bit more.
All that is wrong in shoe.

Excellent grip on a variety of surfaces: snow, trail, grass. Fit OK. Lacing system may be cause of injury.

Good grip and no loss of traction or confidence on a variety of surfaces. I wore these for a 4 hour hill race on grass, road, forest track and bog and had no problems. Also good on hard packed snow.
Fit OK. Comfort not good in toe box with major blistering - not sure why.
Biggest problem has been the lacing system which my osteopath (ex-national level marathon runner) has said is the likely cause of my current injury. I probably overtightened the laces for a fartlek session and the plastic locking clasp pressed down on my tendons causing swelling and pain.
A good buy with the above caveat. I'll probably stick to my favourite manufacturer for road shoes - Asics and go for one of their off road versions.

Great for snow/wet weather

Hold their grip for the kind of winter weather we've been having lately! I've been out in 8" snowdrifts and slush and didn't slip once. If you're on ice nothing apart from spikes would stop you sliding.

However, I don't do 'mega' off-road but use these purely so I can get out. My road running shoes are like skates in anything other than a light shower!

Easy to get on and off - no laces to loosen afterwards and they don't loosen up whilst running.
Still having problems with my heels as the shoes feel a bit 'hard' and I'm a very heavy heel-striker and pronator [though reasonably 'lightweight']. Put some extra cushioned supports in the heels but still a bit sore when I come back from a longer run [about an hour]. They also rub my bunions a bit [I have very wide forefeet as a result of the bunions].
Good for winter runs to get me outside but wouldn't use them too often.

I wouldnt buy another pair the build quality has been very poor

Good grip in all weathers, feel confident on all surfaces
Poor build quality, the quick lace system snapped on both shoes after 4 runs, I didnt like it so it wasnt too much of a problem but now the shoes have started to fall apart, especially after running in the snow. Very disapointed from a shoe of this cost.
