The Oroc 340 GTX. The first thing to remember about these shoes is that ice is your friend, pavement is not. They took a few miles on the asphalt, but I think they are designed for unsurpassed stability on ice, snow & crud. Quite simply, these shoes rock. What shoe could you get out of the box, lace up & crank out 9 miles without a single hot spot? I was cautious at first, but these babies had me climbing & descending thick smooth ice without so much as a hint of adrenalin induced "uh oh I'm going down." At only -1 C at the start of the run these shoes were a tad warm, but by the end at -3 & snowing they were fine. Gore-Tex makes them the perfect winter shoe. The fit was true to size and slightly narrower than my other shoes which have a roomier toe box, but the fit is designed to give you maximum support in sketchy conditions, so that's fine by me. Lightweight & despite the tungsten carbide dobs, extremely flexible. There you have it...I'm officially impressed.

Excellent shoe for gripping multiple surfaces. I have used it for ice and snow and it is amazing. Looking forward to trying them in the grass.

I absolutely love these shoes, but please note that this is NOT simply a burly regular trail running shoe. I was looking for a "tank," and this is certainly that, but it is a tank with a very specific and unfortunately limited purpose. This shoe is excellent for running on ice, hard packed snow, mud, and places where there are no trials (i.e., orienteering, etc.). The biggest problem with this shoe in terms of "regular" trail running are the carbide studs. I figured the studs would just add to the overall bite, and thus improve the experience, but they make running on rocky trails even harder because the metal doesn't offer any traction on solid rock or gravel surface the way that rubber does. The studs just scrape against the surface of rocks and gravel without gripping (I noticed actual scratches in the rocks that I was running on). This became such an issue that I ended up avoiding the rocks completely and just ran in the muddiest parts of the trail so I wouldn't skid off the rocks. The shoes are excellent in the mud, by the way, but I found it less fun to be avoiding 50% of the terrain because of my shoes. Additionally, the lugs are so substantial that running on hardpack or on asphalt makes it feel like you are running in soccer cleats. I would not want to run for more than a couple hundred feet on asphalt with these shoes. Another hazard that I discovered is landing on downed trees - the carbide studs bite in so effectively that there is no "pivot" and the risk of twisting an ankle is increased. That said, there is excellent grip in mud and soft forest floors, and it's fun to just run-bushwhack off trail. In conclusion, I really love these shoes, but I will only be using them for the winter running and limited off-trail excursions. Pricey for part-time shoes - wish they made the soles without the studs (or with removable ones). Also YOU CAN'T WEAR THEM INSIDE on anything except carpet. Ran to a friend's house for a party and had to leave them outside. They will punch little holes in any kind of flooring.
