    A pair to return, b*****r!

    Dear Molehill your post perplexes me?

    Is it so we will wonder how even such a wise and experienced runner/walker as you can forget, in your attempt to save a penny or two, that to buy cheap is to get cheap?

    Or is it so we loyal Forum readers will ponder that even after INOV-8 has produced the finest range of fell shoes known to man some people will resist buying them out of perversity?

    Back in the mists of time, for my local newspaper, I reviewed the first INOV-8 shoe and my positive appraisal eventually found its way to the INOV-8 website, after which the company became staggeringly successful and a worldwide brand.

    I know, I know....but pro bono publico.

    Anyway, since then I have used no other fell shoe so please believe me (and not those who live in Addingham and still use candles because they don't trust this newfangled electricity) when I say that, like Mercedes-Benz cars, INOV-8 is simply the best.

    I've been through PBs, innov8 and many other overpriced fellshoes, and I demolish the lot.
    But I reckon 3 pairs of more mile cost the same as I pair of "proper shoes", but a single expensive pair have never lasted as long as 3 cheap pairs.

    Keep with the cheap!

    So after a year of racing and modest training, the midsole on my left hand shoe started separating. Not a full scale failure like Pat's but obviously a precursor. Stuck 'em back with Gorilla Glue. Lets see how that lasts. The uppers are holding up perfectly though and in all other respects the shoes are performing as well as any 90-120 quid pair!

    Moley, aint you ever heard of stanley knives???

    I actually glued mine with shoe goo, which worked great for another 150 km until the other one fell apart. Not repairable this time

    I'm quite enjoying mine - grip is very good. On first use i felt a little unstable in them, but a close look revealed that the central set of cleats in the heel protruded around 3mm more than the surrounding ones. A quick trim up made them feel a lot more stable
