Haven't tried them yet. They have the same sole as the MT00, but more cushioning and a slight drop. Also the last is narrower in the toe like a traditional running shoe.

More Mile Cheviot 3s. Done 130 miles or so on wet muddy trails and they are in good nick. Very chunky tread and don't seem to hold the mud. They are very grippy, but not that comfortable for mixed terrain if yu are going to be doing more than an hour running.

This rather old thread caught my attention in the sidebar. Whilst I am now sorted for road shoes I think (Saucony Triumph ISO 4 £50 at SportsShoes; women's similar from £40!) I could do with something with a bit more tread for the limited rougher stuff I do (nothing extreme! Moderate trails and mud.). My Salomon road to trails were ideal, but now worn flat and falling apart.

The More Miles Cheviots mentioned certainly caught my eye: up to v4 and still only £30 direct or via Start Fitness (or £20 at Go Outdoors, although currently out of stock). There is also a lighter, low drop version,. Cheviot Pace startfitness.co.uk

Anyone have any input about these, or any (low price) alternatives? Cheers :-)

Yup I use both of those More Miles Cheviots models, as stated they have a very aggressive tread, and are great for slushy slippy muddy paths. I find them fine on roads, although understandably less so on slimy slick rocks. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them if you were running on more extreme terrain, but they might be a little overkill for your purpose. They are very basic with little cushioning, after a while on hard packed trails and roads my feet do feel a little battered so you might be better looking for something else? I used to buy Adidas Kanadia when they were cheap but they are now a tad overpriced for what they are. I haven't tried Decathlon's off-road shoes but they're fairly cheap, and their kit is normally good. These one's have a more moderate tread?https://www.decathlon.co.uk/mens-tr-black-and-bronze-id_8513301.html

If you do go for the More Miles Cheviots it's worth looking for a discount code, I know there are a few hanging about.

Thanks Marvin, sound probably not the shoes I'm looking for. I need a bit of cushioning as I'm quite heavy-footed and have a sometimes unhappy heel. Might have a trip to Go Outdoors anyway and I'm overdue a Decathlon visit as well. Both are within range, but not "pop-in" distance.

Got something to say?
