Tackar för länkarna. Fanns åtminstone en australier som verkade nöjd:
I just received a pair of MM Cheviots here in Australia earlier today. First impressions were that they seemed visually very similar to Inov8 Mudclaw 330/333s, especially the sole with it's 'bi planner' type heel and stud pattern. Although we have no true 'fell' running here in Australia (I'll use the shoes for short mountain trail and cross country races), recent heavy rains and flooding in my part of New South Wales has left wet boggy conditions and a short 5 km run across boggy country with some undulations had me very happy with the shoes. Great traction on wet grass and mud, can't comment on wet rock as yet. I'd describe the fit as similar to my Inov8 Roclite 295's - I'm a New Balance 2E width road/trail shoe wearer and like a little more forefoot width without a loose heel.
Close examination of the shoes showed a good build quality, I could not help noticing that the size tag in the left shoe was almost identical to that used by Inov8 and the lace eye loops and laces were identical. I think it entirely possible that MM's come from the very same factory in China as Inov8s.
I got my shoes for GBP 29.95 from ebay seller 'exercise-direct.co.uk', which is about 1/3 of what I pay for comparable Inov8 shoes via Wiggle etc. I'm that happy with the MM's that I've just purchased 2 more pairs of Cheviots at GBP 29.95 a pair, this time I've gone for the black/blue model as the gray/yellow model that I received earlier today has a yellow inner lining that has already attracted a little dirt in it's maiden run and will get much more.
My conclusion - if you like the Inov8 Mudclaw 330/333 or even the Mudroc 290, you might like the MM Cheviot at around 1/3 of the price.
Sedan var det någon annan, vars sula hade lossnat. Verkar vara en spännande sko ;)
