    Comments about Mens Inov-8 Roclite 305 Trail Running Shoe:

    Use the Inov8 Roclite 305 running on rocky trails and some dirt, with steep hills and loose rocks, N. Baja Mex. desert. They give me the most confidence in difficult terrain, which I can run for hours at a time interspersed with timed uphill repeats at max effort. Nice forefoot flex, aggressive nubs on sole give the best traction ever. (Also great for carrying windsurfing gear on slippery, slimey rocks on the beach, where I have been hurt before.) Not as soft and cushy as the Merrell All Out Peak, which are less protective and a close second. 305's are more stable in loose rocks--all the ground hereabouts is aggregate gravel, mostly smooth 1 to 3 inch rocks, sometimes sharp.

    Beautiful workmanship, thin insoles are removable, insides are so smooth and satiny one could do without socks. Lacing: the best laces, unlike some others, they do not come undone. Did not need to adapt to them, plenty of forefoot room, which can be a problem for me with more curved lasts. They feel a bit more like a boot than a slipper in the RRS store, but on the rough trail this is a benefit.

    They breathe well and have only a modest heel lift. Nice shoes.

    For me, on the trail, with mid-foot foot-strike, and with soft insoles I use, they are fine. Would also think they would do very well in soft turf. Would much prefer a shoe designed for pavement if running in the city or suburbs. Haven't tried them on the beach, as beach runs are in Chile during the austral summer.
