Inov-8 Shoe brand

Postby YoungGunLefty » Mon Dec 21, 2009 12:33 pm

I found this shoe brand by chance and was wondering if anyone has ever tried this brand out. I was thinking about trying them out as a dg shoe mainly because it looks like they have thick soles and seems like they would hold up well against wear and tear of dragging your foot. Let me know any reviews if you have worn these. And it sounds cool cause their name is INOV-8 so its real close to innova in name.

I have a good buddy who is some sort of psycho all terrain marathon runner - he is a fan of the Inov8s.

Was just looking at the Inov-8 Flyroc 345 GTX. They look nice. Here's a review I just read about them:

FlyRoc 345 GTX - I'm a disc golfer, and my particular style of play is punishing on my shoes. I have destroyed many, many pairs, and tend to do so in short order. I purchased a pair of Keen's not too long ago, and they lasted two months before shoe goo could not keep them together any longer. Very disappointing. I purchased these next, and have been VERY happy with them. They have endured a full 8 months of abuse on the course, 4-7 days a week, every week. They offer comfort, performance, support, good looks, and they are built to last. I intend to purchase more Innov-8s in the future.

He doesn't specify which model, so I would assume it wasn't the Milos, so yes. And I believe the 8 months was in reference to how long the Inov-8 shoes have lasted.

I got these in yesterday and played my first round in them and I must say they are awesome. And it helped that I won the mini as well.
These things are extremely comfortable and they fit really really well. Plus they have endless options depending on the type of shoe you are looking for. I loved my salomons but they wouldnt last more than three months before falling apart. And the new milos i think are the ugliest thing thats come out in shoes in a very long time. And you are limited to one or two options.
If you are looking to try a new shoe out give these a shot. Especially if you throw innova discs because they tie in perfect. :lol:

I am unaware if they have wide foot beds but here is the phone number from the site and you can call them there and they can help with any questions that you may have.

here is what they say about the shoe pictured above

INOV-8 Roclite 312 GTX 11.6 oz $130 http://www.inov-8.com
Have you always wanted a Gore-Tex trail shoe but were dissuaded by the weight and bulk of most offerings? Wait no more. The svelte Roclite 312 GTX offers protection from the elements without sacrificing speed. If you’re already a fan of the Roclite 305, then you’ll transition seamlessly to the 312 GTX, which is the same shoe with Gore-Tex.
The agro “bike-tread” outsole gobbles up all obstacles- mud, rocks, slush-and, riding low-to-the-ground as with all inov-8s, the shoe lets your foot naturally react to the terrain.
With a roomy forefoot, the 312 GTX fits medium to wide feet and runners with low to medium arches, and runs about a half-size small.

Testermonial: “These shoes’ best feature is the balance between a light, agile upper with a hard, stable heel. I really liked the comfort for short-distance trail runs.” –Jody McAuley, Mount Pleasant, SC

Just ordered a pair of the Roclite 318 GTX myself. Found a pair $50 off, I couldn't believe it. Looking forward to trying these out.
