Transition from INOV-8 310 to 315?
Is anyone familiar with the sizing of both the 310 and 315? I have tuned in a good fit with size 11.5 in the 310 and wonder if I need to change sizes to move on to the 315. I'll likely cont...

Re: Max Daily Mileage and Why?
Great topic, and very interesting reads. My longest day, by hours, was roughly 6am to 9pm several years ago. I don't recall how many miles I accomplished, but it was my first ever 20+ mile ...
