Nick, have you tried using some shoes that have traction designed for mud? You really want something with cleat like lugs.

Surprised no one has mentioned inov8. They make some mud-specific trail runners. I haven't used them, but they have big ol' cleats for traction and an upper that isn't mesh and is designed to seal out mud and debris. Here's a review of the Mudclaw 265:

Thanks for sharing that Kate. I have plans for the West Coast Trail next summer and I don't think my LS Wildcats are up to the challenge mud wise.
