Inov-8 @ TheClymb on 03/13/2012 10:33:00 MDT Print View

I'm not a fan of shameless plugs (so find your invites elsewhere), but TheClymb is having a sale on Inov-8 shoes right now.

Available models:
M's Roclite 312 GTX - $80
M's Roclite 318 GTX - $80
M's Roclite 390 GTX - $70
M's Road-X 255 - $55
Unisex Roclite 288 GTX - $80
Unisex Roclite 315 - $50
Unisex Roclite 319 - $55
W's Roclite 268 - $50

BPL consensus on the Roclite 315's is that they are awesome trail shoes - 11 user reviews, average rating 4.73/5. Also, even after $8 for shipping they were about $25 less than I could find them anywhere else in my size (10.5). The 312 GTX's have good user reviews as well, but yeah, I don't want gore-tex in a summer trail shoe.

Ha, yeah, I don't post affiliate links, I feel like doing so cheapens the fun of sharing deals with fellow BPL members. I only post deals here if I legitimately think they are good deals.

What? You mean you don't come on here daily and post every single brand listed on The Clymb and make it seem like you discovered a great deal? Every. Single. Brand. Daily?

In for two pairs of the roclite 315. Tough to find the smaller unisex sizes sometimes.

Don't be a douche. He is nice enough to spend the time listing the different deals and price. On top of that, he is not being greedy as to put an affiliate link. I'd much rather have that then people not listing any insight on what the deals are. It usually sounds like that

"Super deals on brand X at the clymb, I bought 2 items myself, www.theclymb.com/greedydouche" so people have to sign up to discover that the deal isn't that great and that they don't have what they are looking for in the first place...

Sizing? on 03/14/2012 09:49:47 MDT Print View

I've read you'll want to size up at least 1/2 size larger (e.g. if you wear 10's you'll want to order 10.5)
Is that the same for the rest of you? I've also seen ordering a full size larger??

Noel, please re-read my post then look up sarcasm in the dictionary. If this is still unclear to you and you insist on calling me names, send me a PM and I'll walk you through it.

Re: Sizing? on 03/14/2012 11:23:47 MDT Print View

Hi Jon,
Regarding size: I have slightly wide feet and wear a 10.5 in most shoes, I'm typically a 10.5 for Inov-8 as well. I had tried an 11 in the flyroc 310's and found them too big - they were slipping on my heel. Also, the last for Inov-8 shoes varies by model, for example, the 310's and 315's have the Comfort last, which is "Generous fitting and offering a more comfortable style. Ideal for training and long distances particularly on trails." I felt pretty safe ordering my normal size for them.

Also, Justice, the sale ends at 11am CST on Friday (3/16).

"I've read you'll want to size up at least 1/2 size larger (e.g. if you wear 10's you'll want to order 10.5)"

This is absolutely true for me. Especially true if you swap out the insoles with something like Superfeet.

Yes, I'm up a half size too. I also have some 240's that seemed bigger than the 315s it but worked out great since I was on two week hike. More feet spread I think.

Thanks on 03/15/2012 07:05:04 MDT Print View

Thank you all for the replies, I believe I'll order half size up strickly because I have an odd shaped foot. I am going to kick myself (pun intended) if I should have ordered the right size!

Returns at The Clymb on 03/26/2012 21:45:51 MDT Print View

They sent me the wrong size, what is their return policy if I was sent the wrong thing?

Re: Returns at The Clymb on 03/26/2012 22:38:01 MDT Print View

they will issue you a merchandise credit, but not a refund in normal circumstances. if I was you, I would argue for a full refund and not have to pay return shipping. i've never dealt with their customer service, so I'm not sure how that will go over. try calling their customer service number: 1-877-464-6936

for a regular return, go the website and scroll to the very bottom. there's a button that says return. click proceed and put in your order info. If your return is apprved, they'll email you a shipping label. When they receive the shoes, they'll deduct $6.99 from your credit to pay for the return shipping.

Running Warehouse shoe size calculator on 03/27/2012 13:16:22 MDT Print View

FYI, Running Warehouse has a great comparison tool where you compare the size of a shoe you know fits well with one you want to buy. You can even see how the shapes match, if you want more toe room, etc... They also offer free 2 day shipping, and they strike me as super professional. Use code Runblog10 for 10% off... I just got a pair of X-talon 212's from them for $81 with shipping.

call them and discuss it with them. They have always treated me right in the past.

They should own up to their mistake and make things right.

That is great! Thanks for posting about your experience with them.

A long time ago, they messed up on an order of mine. It was a small item value wise, but they told me to go ahead and keep the item and then sent me the correct item.

The item made a great christmas gift to a friend of mine.

Great service, and great company all around.
