Compared to their predecessors (ie. the Leadville in all its guises) they're pretty good on wet terrain Ros, the vibram sole wears well and is not bad on wet rock. My problem with the Hierro is that they do become waterlogged and a bit heavy as a consequence, hence my thinking they're a dry weather shoe. If I was doing another of the UTMB races, this would be my go-to shoe without question*

* which is a bit silly of me, when I did the full UTMB it pissed it down for the first 10 hours :-)

to be fair, even mudclaws and xtalons have been no match for the mud we've had around here recently.

I'm keeping an eye out for a pair in the sales to have a spare, but these feel like they should do a fair few miles. Need to take them somewhere rocky soon.
