Inov-8 Roclite 315 Sizing on 04/28/2009 18:08:49 MDT Print View

Im going to be buying a pair of Inov-8 Roclite 315's and was wondering if anyone sized up when purchasing these? I have seen here and on and other reviews that many users sized up a half to full size on these and other models-I have narrow feet so im thinking of just going up just the half size-what is your experience?
Thanks Aaron

Almost alll online shoe stores are free shipping both ways, so order 2 sizes and compare.

I just got mine today and the half size I went up is PERFECT! Just enough room to add a liner sock in colder conditions-Cant wait to get out on the trail and try them out-11 oz per shoe on my scale*Much different feel then Golite Sun Dragons or Trail Flys that ive been wearing for the last couple of years;the toe box is really narrow on the Roclite 315 in comparison to the Golites-Anyone had any problems with the narrow toe box?

Later

Aaron,

I'm currently comparing various Inov-8 shoes, the 315, Flyroc 310, Terroc 330 and Roclite 295. I'm finding the 315 toebox to be a little too narrow and not tall enough for my fat and tall toes. the 330 and the 295 toeboxes are much more spacious. They also have a somewhat similar underfoot feel to the 315's, whereas the flyrocs are much flatter underfoot. But I've only worn them around my apt so far.

That sounds like quit the shoe closet James! Yeah it feels like my toes might be a little sore after a big mile day due the directing of my toes inward from the slim toebox, but hopefully it wont be too discomforting or an issue.It doesn't feel bad as I walk around my house but only miles will tell the true story.

I didn't know I had a semi-local retailer (not listed on their site) so I'm taking advantage of the free shipping both ways at runningwarehouse. I'm only keeping one pair. Maybe two.
