User Review: Inov-8 Men's Flyroc 310
Use: trail and mountain running
Break-in Period: a couple days
Weight: 11 or so ounces
Price Paid: $90
I love these shoes and that's a rare thing. These sneakers are lightweight and have excellent tread that doesn't wear down despite the harshest beating on rock.
They fit like a glove and over good stability and a lower heel (I was skeptical at first) that allows faster decents.
The Innov8 line resists water from entering the shoe and I have stepped in the bog more than once and not ended up with wet feet, much to my surprise.
I would recommend these shoes over any brand for those looking to actually run mountains or just go for a romp in the woods.
The only slight drawback is a narrow heel surface, which might be difficult for those whose ankles aren't accustomed to unstable terrain.
If you have done a lot of trail running you should be fine though and the benefits far outmatch any concerns
Buy them ... you won't regret it.
