Inov-8 X-Talon 200
The Talons were designed specifically for obstacle racers: They’re lightweight, have an aggressive tread, and drain water well. Their minimal, low-cushion design makes them more agile on the course, and it even lets your toes splay for extra comfort.
PRO TIP: “Don’t wear Gore-Tex shoes,” says Schlachter. “Gore-Tex is great for shedding mud and water, but the moment you submerge your foot—which will happen in a mud pit or a cold-water plunge—that water stays in the shoe, so it ends up weighing two to three times more than it did when it was dry.”
