I love these shoes!

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?
