here on the swedish westcoast summer is already turning into autumn and with this the inevitable wet weather has come. From now till next spring basically every forrest trail here will have its share of wet spots. This includes a lot of rocks, which brings me to my problem. In all their glorious perfectness ;), my beloved Pearl Izumi EM Trail N1s have one problem: grip on wet rocks. There is none. :( And believe me, I have been falling more than once because of this - luckily so far without consequences.
I am considering whether I should just be extremely careful from now on, or if it is time for another outbreak of the shoe acquisition syndrome. The decision might be easier if I would know if there are any lower drop (<=6mm) shoes out there which actually considerably are better on wet rocks than my PIs. I would suspect that some of the Inov-8 shoes or the La Sportiva Helios might be better. Maybe also the New Balance MT1010. But that's all just guesswork.
So, is there someone here who has found the right tool to tackle wet rocks?
