Mud Run Shoes

One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will ever invest money in are a good pair of mud run shoes. These shoes are normally referred to as trail running shoes and are designed to be taken off the track and asphalt and onto trails, paths, and dirt roads. These shoes are normally built to keep your foot comfortable, cushioned, and prevent injury.I normally go through a pair of mud run shoes every 4 to 6 months. Depending how often you run/race in them, yours will last just as long. If you are wondering on how to clean them after a mud run or looking for answers to additional questions, check out my FAQ page.For now, here are some of my favorite brands and what I recommend to buy. Check back often as I will update this page once a month!
