I wear the 295's (actually the women's version, which is called the 268).
If what you like about the 295's is the combination of wide toe box and narrow heal, here are some other trail runners that have worked for me that have those characteristics:
Asics Trail 2150. Heavier than Inov-8, but also cushier. Traction not as good. Wide toe box. Heel not *quite* as narrow; lace up tightly on top if you have an extra-narrow heel. They last a long time.
New Balance MT100/MT101/WT100/WT101. No longer made. I try to find on Ebay. Similar shape to 295's; rock plate; lighter than 295's (fit like dreamy slippers); toe box even wider (especially on the 100's); you feel the ground a bit more; traction is average. They run small. With WT100 I had to size up one full size. With 101's, size up 1/2 size.
New Balance MT10/WT10. I have only tried these on in the store, but they are a terrific fit if the others on this list fit you. They do NOT come with a rock plate. Therefore I might get some for trail running, but prob not for rocky backpacking. Note that New Balance has a ton of models that are named almost identically; I have tried the MT20/WT20 on in the store and they are NOT a good fit, nor were the 110's.
Brooks Pure Grit. I have only tried them on in a store, and found them to be a good fit, not dissimilar to 295's. The previous road-runner version (Brooks Green Silence) fit even better, with extremely wide toe box, but they have NO traction and are no longer made.
Salomon XA Pro was mentioned. I have tried in store, they have wide toe box and very very cushy feel, like walking on pillows. Heavier than other models here.
Brooks Cascadia was mentioned, I have tried in store and they do feel similar to 295's. A little heavier than 295's but not clunky at all.
Inov-8 Trailroc 235/245/255. New series for Inov-8. I have not tried them yet but they sound like one of the few Inov-8 models with a wide toebox. Hailed as an even-lighter version of the 295's.
