Mer­rell Avalaunch Tough Mud­der £110

If run­ning through gloopy mud, scram­bling over ob­sta­cles and jump­ing in thick muddy wa­ter is how you like to spend your time, Mer­rell has the shoe for you. Its brand-new Avalaunch Tough Mud­der shoe is specif­i­cally de­signed with ob­sta­cle rac­ing in mind. It’s a su­per- light­weight shoe, with a stiff UniFly mid-mid-sole for sup­port and a flex­i­ble toe for fast and ag­ile move­ments. Ag­gres­sive 5mm lugs are de­signed to shed mud as you go over the mid­foot and heel, but in­clude lugs with a larger sur­face area on the toe to give added trac­tion while mov­ing over those slip­pery wooden ob­sta­cles. A fab­ric and mesh up­per aim to pro­vide good ven­ti­la­tion, keep­ing the feet nice and cool. The padded Ly­cra tongue is built in, ex­tend­ing around to the heel, giv­ing a close sock-like fit to keep ex­cess wa­ter and de­bris out. Loosen or tighten as you please, as fast as you like, with the easy-to-use quick-lock sys­tem. An added Ly­cra flap at­taches over the lock to pro­tect it from catch­ing as you race.
