They are best fitting quite snuggly. (almost feel too tight when you first put them on). With the toungue there is rarely any ingress of stones etc. Breathe well. Reasonable padding (if you run much on a road you feel the studs, but that isn't why you have these) Really good traction on mud etc This is a second (well, third as I have a slightly larger pair i wear with sealskin socks in the winter / snow).
Bought these on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. They feel robust and tough and up to the rigours of long days in the hills. I completed a couple of 15 milers to wear them in and then wore them for the first 46 miles of the Spine Challenger (before changing Akashas). They withstood everything the southern Pennines threw at them and I had no foot issues at all. There was a problem with the first delivery but Rock & Run were straight on to it and a replacement pair were with me two layers later with the packaging and instructions to return the original pair. I normally wear Inov8 size 9 but went up to 9.5 in the Mutants as I was told they come up a little small. They felt a little “snug” on my wide hobbit feet but soon wore in to feel solid and grippy in all but the worst mud. I’d definitely recommend them - go up at least half a size. And I’d definitely recommend Rock & Run - this was the first time I’ve had to deal with their customer service in several orders from them over the years and they were excellent.
Great product particularly when there’s a price reduction. The Mutant is a snug/precise fit and you may need to size up if you have broad feet. It deals well with a mixture of terrains and wears well. Possibly the best multi-purpose off road running shoe I’ve come across.
