I first looked into the Inov-8 Trailroc Series after talking to a shoe rep at an expo. I was looking for a trail shoe that had good grip on wet wood and rocks. I had a horrible spill off a wet wooden bridge using my otherwise pleasing Brooks Pure Grits, and I decided I needed a shoe for the elements. I must say after multiple runs through wet trails and braving the same wooden bridge, the Trailroc's do indeed have good grip. I chose the 245's because of the 3mm drop with the rocplate. I have been running with low differentials, but I felt that the 0 drop of the 235 would be too big a drop from what I was used to. The Trailroc's are light, comfortable and drain water very well. I just purchased a pair of road inov-8's since I liked these so much! They are definitely pricey, but they are worth it!

I'd also recommend: Brooks, new balance

Couple of folks have posted that the shoe runs a size small. It's worth noting that the shoes is a minimal shoe and I think it's intended to be worn without socks. The tongue even has a picture of a bare foot on it to remind you. Without socks it's snug and won't fall off during a run - great shoe! With socks (even athletic socks) it won't fit. And socks will just prevent your toes from moving around - and what's the fun in that. Highly recommend this shoe - but leave the socks at home when you go out for a run.

After trying countless other options, this shoe delivered what I was looking for; a minimalist trail runner with underfoot protection, good traction and a wide toe box.

Was a little closer to size for me than my husband, but I tend to be between sizes occasionally. Read that these were a little wider than the other Inov-8 shoes, and I'm really happy in that regard. Great for Crossfit, awesome for on road and off-road runs, going to be sporting these for our Spartan Race on Saturday!
