INOV-8 MUDCLAW 300

price: £100
weight: 235g

Mudclaws have become well established as a fell-runner’s shoe, thanks to aggressive 8mm lugs comprised of hard and medium compound rubber, to give both grip and durability.  The Mudclaw performed well on muddy ground, allowing fast, confident running in the worst of conditions. It also gripped well on steep grass and rocky terrain. The uppers have a rand and toe bumper to protect against stones, whilst the Precision Fit, flexibility and 6mm drop added to the feeling of control. 

Verdict

A racing and training shoe giving excellent grip in all conditions.
