Mudroc - Innov 8
Has anyone tried these yet? I'm wondering whether to buy. I've always run off road in Walsh PB.
They're fantastic shoes Wendy. Have run a seasons worth of x-country in them with no problems. They even got me round Tough Guy this year and look as good as new (after much rinsing).

Quite so Armadillo - my favourite shoes...
Excellent shoes. I wear them for off-road races and for faster-paced training off-road. I feel they offer more protection than Walshes yet feel light and responsive.
Thanks for the response, I think I;ll be buying a pair at the weekend.

these shoes are the absolute daddies - i have had two pair now and they are great - have even run a 10k road race in them and PB'd it !
Don't know that I'd run 10km on the road in them but they are more suportive and protective than walshes - as well as being wider in the forefoot (usually I have to buy shoes 1.5 sizes larger in Walshes to fit). Not sure that thy offer quite the same grip, however, and as RW says they do take a bit of getting used to.
Doesn't lots of road running wear out the studs quickly?
Oh, I was asking about the Walsh in the local running shop yday, and was gonna get them in preparation for some X country and Tough Guy races in the winter.
Now I'm wavering....
I can recommend the Inov-8's, I run offroad as much as possible - hence the moniker - and have a large collection of fell shoes, a la Imelda Marcos so my GF says, the Inov-8's are better than Walshes (wear n' tear, last quality etc), I rate them slighty above the Adidas Davos/Swoop but I tend to swop between these shoes for certain races but then I am a bit pedantic when it comes to hill running.

I bought a pair a few weeks ago!! Straight out of the box I ran in the national XC championships - they are very comfortable and gave tremendous grip. I'll be doing more off road from now on...!!

I've raved about these in the past and they remain my current favourite shoe - and I love the advert (see their website for more)
