Purchased this shoe for my first Spartan Sprint. Absolutely loved it. Not only is it an attention grabber, but it really performs. Lightweight even when wet, required virtually no break in and is as comfortable a training shoe as I have ever owned. My buddies running with me in Salomons and Sauconys couldn't help but hate. I will now be getting my crossfit footwear from Innov8. A customer for life.

I purchased two Inov-8 Mudclaw, for my husband and me. They were comfy and light. Fits true to size. We used them for Spartan Tuxedo and it was perfect for running, hiking and walking an incline wall. Can't wait to use them for Spartan Super and Beast. We washed them and they look brand new.

I bought these for a Survivor Mud run. They really worked out well. I was able to climb mountains of mud while others were slipping and sliding up and down the hill. If you get these, you won't be sorry. I was a rock star with these shoes.

These shoes are great. Tons of traction on various surfaces. Great traction on loose surfaces without being slippery on wood. I use these for USPSA matches where starting and stopping quickly on different surfaces is important. These fit me much better than the Salomon speed cross/ fellcross shoes that are very popular. The Mudclaws are not as narrow and fit close to the New balance shoes I usually wear. Having real laces is also an advantage over the Salomon's speed lace system. Standard laces make it easier to tighten them just right. If there was a waterproof version available I would buy another set.

I used these for my first Tough Mudder today and they were perfect! They gave grip on the obstacles, stayed on my feet in the mud and did not slip and slide, released the mud and water and they washed up perfectly when I got home. Best investment for heavy duty trail running!

I bought these shoes based on the reviews and it is great as they said. I had to get the right one widened (foot issues, not the shoe!) and I hope that helps. But as far as traction on trails it was fantastic.

This shoe is amazing! I bought it for my first mud run (Spartan Sprint, 4.8 miles) and it gave me excellent traction throughout the course! While others were slipping and sliding back into mud pits or struggling up steep hills, these shoes gave me confidence to step boldly and go right past them. I was also surprised by their comfort because I don't have any arch and I always struggle to find shoes that don't hurt or give me blisters. I had no issues with these shoes and was grinning when I finished the race. Probably my best shoe purchase ever.

Fantastic. Wore these for my first BoneFrog Challenge. Will be wearing these for all future adventure races. If you want to feel sure-footed in mud, water, loose gravel, and dirt, running uphill, downhill, and navigating obstacles: these are your shoe. I had 2 minor slips the entire race, while teammates with other footwear looked like they were running in place at times! Definitely a recommended buy!

Brands I'd also recommend: Reebok Nano, Vibram FiveFingers, New Balance Minimus

Ran in a recent Tough Mudder in this shoe. It will put you head and shoulders above anyone not wearing them. The price seems like a lot - worth every nickel. Washed them out, ran them through the washing machine and wore them the next day. Unbeatable.

Based upon the reviews I read here, I purchased this shoe for a Spartan race and other races I have this season. I was not disappointed! This shoe was excellent in all conditions that I faced, from running through streams, walking through deep mud, climbing slippery hills, etc. The shoes provided me with great traction while other people were sliding everywhere. Also, I was never in danger of these shoes coming off in deep mud. They stayed on securely. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a shoe for off road events.

Just used these in both the Virginia Spartan Super, and the Vermont Spartan Beast (10:08...yes, that's hrs:min). I am pretty happy with them. I went from the old green baregrip 200's (best grip, bad durability) to these as I needed more ankle stability. They grip really well on mud/rock/grass, drainage is decent, true to size as compared to New Balance's, lateral stability is excellent, extremely comfortable on par with zero drops, no arch issues noted, and they are very durable. As I noted, the grip is not quite as total as the Baregrip 200's, but is very close (just compare the treads and you see why), but the new baregrips have been redesigned to be more durable so that is probably the same as mudclaws now. As a minor con the cleanup at home is a pain as they are too substantial to dry quickly and can hold moisture if you don't wash them quickly, making them smelly (baking soda is good to fix that).

Brands I'd also recommend: Inov-8 Baregrip 200's version 2

These shoes are worth the money. Second year of using them for obstacle racing and the mud traction is far superior to any other shoes I have worn. Ran the Spartan Race today and they performed.

Based upon the reviews I read here, I purchased this shoe for the Mud Guts and Glory race. I was not disappointed! This shoe was excellent in all conditions that I faced, from running through streams, walking through deep mud, climbing slippery hills, traversing walls of tires and ascending and descending hillsides via ropes. The shoes provided me with great traction while other people were sliding and falling regularly. The shoes stayed comfortable while wet and I was never in danger of these shoes coming off in deep mud.

This is a great sneaker for any type of hill training. I bought this sneakers for the Spartan Sprint in Tuexudo, NY. The race has not happened yet but i'm currently breaking them in. They definitely need about 20 miles or so to be fully broken in; And when they are, they are amazing. I'd recommend them to anyone. In fact, I've convinced my girlfriend to buy a pair as well.
