I bought these shoes for my first Tough Mudder. I took them for a test run before my big day and they held up nice. These shoes were amazing in the Tough Mudder, I had NO issues in the creek, mud, or trails. The grip on the bottom helped me get up the Everest obstacle. If I didn't have these shoes, I wouldn't have done as well as I did. These are my forever Tough Mudder shoes from now on! Incredible quality and I love all the extra features these shoes have too!
I love these shoes! My first couple times around, I wore my old Brooks trail shoes. They were good but I still felt the water just sat in the soles. The tough mudder shoes don’t have that problem at all! They get traction on mud mile, my feet feel secure on the ropes climbing up mudderhorn, and the frigid water after artic enema just drains right out. They also make perfect trail running shoes. I ordered my normal running shoe size (9) and they fit a little snug. They also seem to shrink a bit in the sun when drying them out after events. I plan to size up for my next pair.
