Hubby needed a good cleated type shoe to run Agility Trials with our BLK. Lab. Scout.
She's the best dog...Teeter! Hoop! Tunnel! Go! Oh....the shoes....
Many goals here, most important - stay upright. Lots of run, stop, turn, etc.
The shoes arrived in timely fashion. Good looking, light-weight, and comfortable.
Don't fall down. So far, so good. Thank you for your good customer service.

Bought these for my summer trail hiking. Have worn for about a week The sizing seems big by about a quarter size. I normally wear 12 1/2 and these seems just a tad big. The shoe looks great, love the styling. The traction is awesome on these. 6mm lugs have better traction then my trail boots. I will update these after a few hikes with some weight. So far, for the STP price of 38.00 you cannot find a better deal out there. Great shoes whether they last a year or five years at that price! Recommended!

This is my second pair of Inov-8's, and although it's a different model, it retains all of the great features I loved about the other pair. I have kind of boxy feet, but these conform to my feet and have a great ride. They're sturdy enough to handle rocks, creeks, and even some bouldering when necessary, but they still feel very light and provide a good feel on tough terrain. My first pair lasted me about 600 miles, and this pair seems to be on that same track. They have a smaller drop than some, but are hardly minimal (I think it's a 10mm drop?). Oh, and the lugs on the bottom are one of the best parts! They shed mud better than any shoe I've had and are great on a variety of trails. They're not great for pavement, but if you want to run on the road why are you buying trail running shoes?

New brand for me. Fit issues - none. First run was on a mix of dirt, rock and slickrock trails. Shoes were comfortable, stable, offered good feel of the trail surface while protecting from stones. Outsole sounds kind of "hard" but grip so far has been wonderful. This brand is now on my radar as something that fits me well.

This is the best trail running shoe I have used in 40 years of running.
They are light, responsive, and the soles grip on dirt, leaves, wet trail, and mud like a bulldog bites. I run hilly trails in Northern California where there are few rocks, so I can't attest to their abilities on the hard stuff. But for practically everything else they are the greatest.
