The 230

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

A couple years ago I picked up my first pair of 230's for some light trail / gravel / road running. They work wonders on anything that is relatively smooth and not too crazy. 15-20 milers just seem to fly by in them, even soaking wet when running in the rain too. However, once the trail becomes a bit more crazy, then the TrailRoc's come out; their tread is a bit more aggressive. But back to the 230's, not only are they great for light trail use, they kick it up in the crossfit arena as well- keeping your feet planted like no other. Great all around shoe.

Very comfortable shoes.

  • Fit:True to size

One of the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. I originallly purchased shoes made by Merrell but found them to be too narrow for my feet. Backcountry was great about letting me exchange for the Inov pair. If you're looking for trail running shoes with a minimal sole that are comfortable, I would recommend these. I'm thinking about getting a second pair just for general every-day use because they are so comfortable.

Two Thumbs Up

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Really like them. I do crossfit in them 4-5 times a week. Light, comfy and are holding up well. I feel like they are sized a little big (half-size-) and fit a narrow foot better. I have wide feet and they work though, just snug.

    UPDATE: I just got to 500 miles with the shoes, and both shoes have blow-outs on both sides. I've been really hard on them, but i'm a little disappointed that they are breaking down so quickly. I plan on buying another pair though.

    These bad boys are awesome. Flat out, hands down, freaking amazing. They are really lite, flexible, and sensitive. I've worn them on short runs to 50 milers. They work well on trails and roads.

    If you want the specs, look at the website. Know that the show has a 6mm heel-toe-drop, it has minimal cushioning, no stability control. this is a fairly minimal shoe.

    I've logged a lot of miles in the shoe, and it holds up really well. I put in about 400 miles, then ran a 50 miler and I noticed at the end that there was a little blow out around the toe box.

    The grip is still in really good shape, despite it being sticky-rubber. I've logged about 250 miles on roads, so it doesn't wear out very quickly.
