Well here is the feedback on the shoes I have received from Zappos so far:
First of all, I'm normally a 10-10.5 for everyday street shoes. I have a wide boxy forefoot and a narrow heel with boney skinny guy feet.
I've tried on Salomon XR Crossmax Guidances,Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2s...both too narrow in the toes and wide in the ankle. Very pointy and tall shoe. Feel like I'm up in the air.
Innov8 TrailRoc 245s, VERY comfy shoe that works with my feet ONLY because the side walls are soft and allows more room for my wide forefoot. Perfect and snug on my ankle. I feel locked in. I'd wear these every day just kickin' around town, but would be worried that I'd eventually grind my toes out of the toe box material on rocks for on-trail use. Also, the foot bed, I have a feeling would leave my feet in rough shape after at least 12 miles on a rocky trail.
Innov8 RocLite 315...Seems pretty solid yet has too pointy of a toe and thus my outer toes touch the outer wall on the size 11 (I'm normally 10-10.5). Overall too much extra shoe pointing out.
Innov8 RocLite 295s.....wow, possibly the perfect shoe. Wider than the 315s in the toe box. Heel feels very well seated, but nowhere near the heel seating perfection of the TrailRoc 245s, but more than excellent. The 11s may be perfect, yet I have a feeling 11.5s will be better. Just a bit of extra toe distance from the front of the shoe for downhills and possibly would move my outer toes just a hair off the outer wall...which would be perfect.
The Innov8 TrailRoc 255s are yet to show up, but based on that the soles are less protective than the RockLite 295s, I don't think it will be adequate enough for my boney feet.
Would really love to also try on the Innov8 RocLite 309s, but Zappos doesn't carry them. :O\ That might end up being the perfect show with more underfoot protection than the 295s and the Endurance rubber...as long as they are the same dimensions as the RocLite 195.
...oh, and the Merrell Moab Ventilators...they just feel clumsy and clunky compared to any of the Innov8 shoes.
HTH others out there looking for info on shoes
