I was looking for a barefoot road shoe and the Inov-8 is perfect. I recommend buying half a size up from normal, but my usual size was only slightly snug. It's very light and breathable. I previously purchased the Inov-8 Bare-grip shoe for trail running and loved the trail shoe so much I decided to purchase this shoe for road running. I would not recommend this shoe for trail as the sole is thin enough to "feel" the ground.:-)
First pair of "barefoot" or minimalist shoes; no cushion or arch support, but I wasn't expecting it. I LOVE THESE SHOES. I never expected a minimalist shoe to be so comfortable. I have had some foot problems and have reduced my running ALOT, substituting gym cardio equipment. A friend told me to try a minimalist shoe for the gym - give my feet a break from structure??? These shoes are awesome for the gym...I feel like I am wearing a thick pair of socks.
