Inov-8 288?
I have the inov-8 Roclite 288. It was my first footwear after I decided to lighten up, but I didn´t quite dare to get low shoes. They are light, comfortable and grippy. Just recently there is a pu...

Lava down with eVent
Thanks guys, useful insights! I´d mostly be using a piece this warm in town and for day trips, I think. Another use will be hanging out and watching the kids play in the snow - and playing wit...
