HowHardCanItBeI always wear spikes on an all grass/trail course. I feel I get better traction than my studded shoes. Studs also tend to get clogged on a really muddy course and you can end up carrying half a field round on your feet. Off-road shoes are often the better option for a mixed surface, especially if it's stony or with bits of tarmac.
Some people wear spikes without socks as they're less likely to get sucked off your feet in the gloopy stuff, plus socks can get really wet and bunched up (and destined never to be clean again). You may want to consider that when you're trying on sizes, and check them without socks if you think you might be going naked.
