Has anyone got a pair of Inov8 trail shoes? I think its about time I invested in some trail shoes and Inov8's appear to be a popular choice.
That's what I was thinking, I don't do that many trail races so it would be good to be able to use them for other stuff.Ballibeg said:There's a growing movement in the outdoor scene to wear trail shoes rather than boots for long distance walking. Its about moving lightweight and accepting wet feet!Dave
Like you, almost all of my running is off-road so I wear fell or Trail shoes exclusively. For fell-running I use studded New Balance RX Terrains but for trails, which sometimes includes a little bit of tarmac, I'm currently alternating between Inov8 Terrocs and Inov8 Roclites. I've only just acquired the Roclites. So far I'm quite impressed with the soft comfortable ride they give me, regardless of what surface I'm running on. They were recommended to me by various fell-running friends and also by long distance walkers who are happy to backpack the breadth of Scotland in them and claim to remain blister-free. The Terrocs give a harder ride and are not quite so comfortable on gravelly tracks, but I've raced in them up to 13½ miles with no problems.choldy said:I like the look of the Inov8 kit but are the shoes relatively comfortable on road?
Have you settled for any Inov8 shoes yet Choldy? I'll be doing a Fell race in my Roclites tomorrow so will let you know how they perform.choldy said:I might well go and try on a pair of Roclites, they sound as if they may well be a good way forward for me. thanks for the advice
