Good: Inov-08 are a proper hard North of England company. This shoe is the peak of trail ultra comfort. Great spread for the wide foot. Good sizing with the +0.5 addition for trail/ long distance being compatible. Fantastic grip and mud loss, minimizing retention. Number relates to weight in grams: feel amazingly light yet solid. Good ankle support with flexibility. Minimal blistering. Last a good 12-18mths of hard use. Latest models have much improved lacing systems, and most of the half-arsed GTX (Goretex) attempts have been ditched.
Bad: Toe/ foot joint material cracking complaints have been made on some sites. Returns are good though.
Price from: £80/$122
