    I have not tried it as running shoes!!! I have bought it waterproof shoes for the winter, to use for MTB riding and traveling and even to wear to work on rainy days - for this purpose they are great shoes.

    I needed something that would grip and given the occasional snowy weather here, waterproof. These are great as the GoreTex allows my feet to breathe. Not too flashy, but stylish none the less.

    These are meant for trail running, and I suspect they are great for that, but I will be using them for walking around in mud and shallow snow as an alternative to heavier, less comfortable boots. They are perfect for this.

    As soon as I tried these shoes on I knew they were not for me. The "high top" style make them uncomfortable around my ankle and the shoe felt like it was uneven inside so there were rubbing points that did not feel comfortable in the tounge of the shoe.

    I like these..Inov-8 makes good stuff. These have a bit more cushion than several shoes in their line, but that's a bit relative - you won't mistake them for a cushy trainer or anything, but at the same time they are a comfortable, decently supportive shoe. I plan on using these for kicking around in warmer weather wet conditions and winter running when it's a bit snowy or slushy out. They would do decently well for day hikes in various terrain, but not for heavy loads. I've yet to put the traction through its paces..the sole is nicely designed and grippy, but not an aggressive tread. I'm guessing pure trail runners might do a bit better in loose stuff or mud, etc. All in all, among my favs that I've tried in the Inov-8 line, as many of theirs are too minimalistic and uncushioned for me. These are a nice balance of remaining light weight and still offering slight ankle support and very good flexibility. These aren't going to replace your 3-4 lb. clunkers for serious backpacking, they aren't built for that kind of support or features. But I'm guessing for a vast majority of your other hikes, you'd be better suited to reach for these puppies..a nice mid way point between a boot and a running shoe. Hard to suggest these as real hikers or real runners...these are kind of a compromise but shine in their versatility. I can see bringing these when traveling light and can take only one shoe, especially if it will be wet and i may want to do a jog or two. Fit-wise, they seem to run pretty true to size, I ordered these in the same size I wear in most Brooks, Asics, etc, and they fit well, even slightly bigger than a couple of my running shoes. I like a bit of room in the forefoot, and these have plenty, even with a thicker sock...narrow feet may find it too much. But they seem to cinch down decently in the heel. Seem to be neutral ride...i'm a supinator and these don't seem to mess with my foot much. If you prefer supportive or pronation control shoes, these probably won't offer enough. I haven't taken them on any really gnarly trails yet, I'm a little hesitant as I'm not confident in them yet, but in light duty and wet jogs around the 'hood they've done fine. I have sort of high expectations as I really want these to be winter running shoes that I lack right now, and I'll say I'm about 85% happy with 'em for that.

    I was looking for a light shoe for trail runs and winter conditions. I think they will be great for this. Had worn out my five finger shoes, so got these and a pair of Hattori's. Only used these a few times as I have limited access to trail runs where I live. They have worked wonderful so far.
