Speedcrosses are good for snow, yes, and Spikecross for ice come with Climashield so you don't get a choice on water resistance, but it doesn't go all the way round for models with Climashield, which IMO is a good compromise.

For drying I use a ski boot dryer. It has tubes the poke onto each shoe, a fan about the power of a computer fan blowing down them, and a couple of watts of heating, and a timer from 1 to 3 hours. Also where I live in Norway it is common to have a heated shoe rack. Both of these prevent my Marcos-sized collection getting smelly.

I'm with the Inov-8 posters. Roclite (waterproof GTX) or Mudclaws (not waterproof).

The mudclaws are a very snug fit, and I find compression socks are far better than others if wet - I often don't notice how wet they are till I take them off.

I also use my mudclaws quite happily on roads. They feel very bouncy, but it does wear them out. But not wet chalk.

We have an airing cupboard for drying shoes.
I have been known to use hotel hair driers in hot places. Or sun ...

More Mile Cheviot from Start Fitness are good off-roaders for about £35 including postage. They do come a little small but buying half a size larger than usual should do you. No cushioning so best for softer stuff like sandy or dirt trails. Not so great on stony trails.

Interesting to stumble on this thread. I’m just off to test out a new Mizuno pair with Gortex & Michelin branded rugged looking soles. I bought them on the promise they were essentially my favourite wave riders but with better grip. We shall see

SteveC amid the winters snow
We've had such a wet back end of the year here that I'm thibking of a mixed terrain pair with Goretex now. Thinking of maybe Peregrine 10 gtx or the more extreme La Sportiva Lycan. Wondering how the Mizunos are working out.

Got something to say?
