Inov-8 Trail / Road shoes??

Hi folks

I wonder if anyone has any experience in the choice of a combined trail / road shoe??

Im looking for a shoe that I can used for combined trail / road ultras, the Inov-8 Roclite 312 GTX reads as if this may be a good shoe of choice.... any thoughts.

  • The GTX means goretex. Supposedly keeps water out (apart from the big hole where your foot goes in!) but also lets (some but not all) moisture out.Over a long run, you will accumulate more moisture on the inside than the membrane can cope with - think boil in the bag!

    The other roclites e.g. 295, 315 are not too bad and probably the best in the inov-8 range for combined road/trail,

    I'd also look at more cushioned shoes for ultras such as Mizuno Ascends or Salomons. I'm no expert on those but I'm sure someone else will advise.......
