Shoe advice for Peak winter

Evening all. 

I’m hoping to be pointed in the right direction for an “all rounder” for Peak winter. I’m in a secondhand pair of Sportiva Akashas, and while the cushioning makes up for my awful technique, it far from excels in the typical peat and mud of the Peak. 

If it helps, I generally run between 6-10 miles 5 times a week. Though I do hope to add mileage in the future. 

Thanks in advance 

Tom

I use Adidas Agravic, they’re a great all round ‘trail’ shoe. Good on and off road and the grip has never let me down on rock, tree routes etc. They were a bit slippy running up a very steep, wet and leaf littered cobbled path today however I can’t imagine anything would have been grippy. Once I started hopping between the pointy exposed cobbles they were grand! I’ve got the goretex offering however only on account of them being cheaper at the time of purchase(?!), I can confirm that it is useless in running shoes.

In reply to thomascarr: Are you looking for grip? Waterproofing? Cushioining for when it's cold and a lot of cushioining goes to heck? All off road?

Mostly a balance of cushioning and grip in mud. All off road, I forget to mention.

Depending how off road - Mudclaw, X-talon or VJ iRocks.

In reply to thomascarr: hmm  .. hoka speedgoats, but they're very cushioned, very expensive.  You're looking for a reasonable degree cushion plus big grip..

Few suggestions to consider - saucony peregrine st (deeper lugs and less mesh on upper than standard version), VJ XTRM (super grippy and reasonably well cushioned), salomon wildcross (deep lugged).

I'm using an Inov8 Rocklite 305 which fits the bill (and my wider foot), and it was half price at Ellis Brigham's Capel Curig shop a few months ago so maybe they still have some?
