If you are serious competitor in orienteering sport or x-country/trail races, this shoe might be for you. Lightweight, comfortable fit, nice style, durable. Big plus are embedded metal studs to hold you safe on wet logs and boulders. This shoe is not for street running but for true hardcore competitor who frequently faces all weather conditions on rugged terrain. Highly recommended!

Unless you are a serious trail-runner, i.e. you are only planning on running on grass, dirt, mud etc., don't buy these shoes. They have metal cleats in the tread, a loud and annoying on the street. Otherwise, pretty comfortable and light with superior traction on the trails.

Brilliant wilderness shoe. The level of grip is almost supernatural, particularly on notorious surfaces like wet wood and wet rock. You can hang off 30 deg sloped underwater rocks and feel completely stable. Same on normally treacherous bark-stripped blowdown. You can jog down loose, very steep trails and feel as sure-footed as a mountain goat. In terms of grip this shoe truly represents a quantum leap beyond other trail runners, including Inov8's own non-studded products (of which I am otherwise a fan and long-time user). On the down side, this shoe is 100% unusable on asphalt or in urban settings due to the embarrassing clippity-clop of the metal studs, and on very smooth surfaces like tile it is downright dangerous. Also, it will readily gouge your hardwoods, so don't wear it at home. This is exclusively a wilderness shoe that should not go on your feet until the trail head. The studs are a bit noisy on rocky trails, but not unbearably so, and the noise toned down somewhat after my first outing (20 miles). It feels a bit smaller than other "precision fit" Inov8 products, and it is definitely best for narrow feet. Folks with wide feet should look elsewhere or be prepared for a very snug shoe.

I'd also recommend: None even comes close
