That's the link for the right shoes for what you guys are talking about. Mud trail runners. Use those. Much less damaging than crampons and almost as effective in the mud. The treads are insane. I use these, only specifically for very muddy outings. They are amazing for traction in the mud.

Yeah, I am definitley going to get some shoes with aggressive traction for when I need it. The thing is, I wear very minimal and flexible shoes, so that limits my options. But the vivobarefoot trails look pretty good for that. I wasn't trying to argue that microspikes are good options, I was just curious if they could be used in other ways.
