Mudclaws are great for mud - but no use (worse) for slimy stone/chalk etc.
Still looking for a good shoe for that.
I do have a pair on Inov8 Ultra 290 Goretex that seem good for mixed ground - although do feel them if on road for too long, and not as good as the mudclaws in recent really gooey clay.

Not those shoes, but have had goretex trail shoes, warm in cold dry & windy weather but waterlogged after fording puddles & other fun wet stuff. Was a while ago, may be improved now.

I sometimes use waterproof socks which may be a better alternative than waterproof shoes. However they are pretty thick so might be a struggle if your shoes are snug.

Roclites are great, avoid goretex shoes unless you want to run in snow.

Got something to say?
