Terraclaw 250

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Disappointed. I've been running and hiking in Inov-8 for fifteen years. One of the things I liked best was model availability—buy a pair today and if you want another in six months or two years it is still available. This seems to have gone away in the last few years so when the tread on my last pair was too worn I ordered the Trailclaw 250. The price was about half that of a normal trail running shoe and that should have been a warning, but at the time I chalked it up to Amazon's crazy pricing. Full review

X-Talon 212

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite trail running shoes. Also moonlight as my favorite grass volleyball shoes! Lightweight, great balance between proper foot bottom protection and feel, amazing traction. To top it off, they look good and are built to last. Inov-8 makes the best trail running shoes. Also make great fitness shoes, but this review is on the X-Talon 212. Always a great combination of feel and protection. Basically, enough so that you have a good tactile feel of what you're running on so that you can stay balanced,… Full review

Roclite 286 GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars I just purchased these boots a month ago for coaching soccer in rain and sunshine. Perfect grip on grass and dirt. Very light, almost undetectable on my feet, never got sore or tired feet or legs. A real find; highly recommended. I wear normally size 11.5, but the store (Threads and Treads in Greenwich, CT) only had 12s, and they fit perfectly. So I'd suggest that you buy a half size larger than you usually wear. Full review

F-Lite 195

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for fitness workouts, weightlifting, and good for running. Very comfortable pair of shoes, and extremely light (6.9 oz). It feels like you are training barefoot. Great stability for lifting weights. Full review

Oroc 340

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I've used this shoe for adventure races and general trail running. They perform amazingly on boggy trails and wet slippery rock due to the deep lugs and tungsten studs. The fit of the trainer is snug and the lacing system can get them nice and tight. They were comfortable out of the box and supportive around the bottom of the ankle. The traction is amazing on boggy ground and the mesh uppers allow the foot to breath. The metal studs are great off road but make for noisy running on tarmac or hard… Full review
