I bought these specifically for doing deep-mud off road races like the Tough Mudder and those like them. Traction: I can say safely that no one else I encountered that day had the traction that I did. Where others had to slide down hills, I ran down them with confidence. Where folks were slip-sliding up hills, grasping at trees and shrubbery, I just run up with very little sliding. Cleanup: They cleaned up very nicely with a hose, and even moreso after the major mud was off with a quick trip through the washing machine. Fit: They are a bit narrow, so I can feel them rubbing the balls of my feet, but it is not overwhelming. Support: For me it was lacking, I needed more arch support. So, I went with some inserts and was done.

Awesome shoe. Similar to other Inov8's, it is not quite a 1/2 size longer than other brands. Plenty of width also for our family's wide feet. Great combination of lightweight shoe and moderate stability. Very sticky soles make it great for winter trail running. I have used other Mudclaws for running through snow all season long. Upper materials hold up better than other brands to the aggressive environment of running through deep crunchy snow.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance

Shoes where awesome for the Tough Mudder. They almost never slipped in the mud and had a ton of traction. I really liked them and they were a big advantage. I will have to maybe reglue the toe on one as it is starting to peel back a little.

I am a huge fan of obstacle racing. I've done Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder and Spartan Races, one of my biggest issue is finding the right pair of shoes. I've try New Balance minimalist and it doesn't have any support. When your deal with different trails you need support and traction. I've try the MUDCLAW and fell in love with it. I did the Spartan Beast 13+ miles of hills and mud, I never felt better. It had great support and I felt I could run in mud for along time. I'll recommend this shoes to anyone. Love them.

These shoes lives up to their name for traction in mud. They are the best that I have had in greasy clay or mud bogs. They are excellent anywhere the cleats can sink into the substrate. The grippy sole has been exceptional on wet moss covered rocks. The cleats are noticeable when on solid ground and rocks resulting in some squirm. Overall they are very good in technical wet/muddy trails. A slightly less agressive outsole with the same compound would make excellent all around shoes for the trails that I run in the northeast.

I bought these for participating in Spartan obstacle course races. So far I've used them in five Spartan courses ranging from the Sprint to the Super. The aggressive rubber nubs on the bottom are fantastic for climbing up the muddiest, slipperiest hills without sliding. The problem with the cleats though is that they do not shed the mud, it feels as though you've strapped on five pound weights after exiting any mud obstacle. You have to stop and run your fingers across the bottoms in an attempt to rid yourself of at least some of the trapped debris. Another problem I've found is that when they are wet and clogged with mud and you're running to the next obstacle, my ankles have tended to roll. I think this is because the heel is very narrow and high while the upper support is minimal. For my last Spartan race a week ago I switched to the Inov-8 Oroc 280 which still has aggressive cleats (they even have small tungsten carbide spikes) but they are spaced out more leaving more room to shed the mud. They performed great, seemed to shed water better (no squishing after exiting water obstacles) and to my surprise did not slip at all when running on rocks (I thought the tungsten carbide spikes might present a slippage problem across rocks). The only problem I had with the shoes was wearing them to Walmart before arriving at the race site - they're a bit noisy when walking across hard surfaces (don't do this at home!).

This shoe was really narrow I had to order in a half size larger than I would due to my toe gait width. That being stated for me the shoe was good for relatively flat running but on incline and decline, on the mountain, the size caused problems!

These are regrettably narrow. At the proper length, they were squeezing my foot in the toe box. They're also incredibly stiff, which is potentially a boon in a shoe meant to be placed hastily on rocky, uneven ground.
