Not working on the 390 gtx boot for me.Nov 3, 2009 at 8:30 am #1542164
It worked fine for me.
This was what I did:
Create and account or login. Add the shoes to your cart. View your cart and put in the coupon code. Hit apply coupon.
390s come up as $80.75 after discount.Nov 4, 2009 at 7:51 am #1542549

I ordered a pair of the 390's on Oct 27. I waited until the price was discounted to $95.00, then added code BPL105, and received 30% off from the 95.00
So, my net after adding in shipping was $77.00 and change.
Note: my order sat for 1 week, without processing, then I called and received word it shipped 11/03. At this point I am waiting for the package.

worked for me. Great savings on the store's website. I love the 390's so ordered another pair. Thanks for the postNov 4, 2009 at 3:22 pm #1542736

"Not working on the 390 gtx boot for me."
It didn't work for me when I tried using AOL, but when I accessed the Inov8 website using Internet Explorer directly it worked just fine. Something funny about AOL. Maybe your content provider, too? Give Internet Explorer a try. Can't hurt.Nov 4, 2009 at 4:12 pm #1542750
I ordered a pair of GTX 390's using the BPL105 for 30% off about two weeks ago. Total price for the boots $68. I used the website but I read on another site that others were having trouble using the code.
Then someone posted….
"They have these things called phones now, you call them direct, give them the BPL105 code and you get boots for $68" Said it worked like a charm for them.
Keep in mind this is an old code and it was about 14 – 17 days ago that I did this.
And they shipped very quick too.Nov 4, 2009 at 5:23 pm #1542773
Doing what Chris said worked.
Thanks guys.Nov 10, 2009 at 6:21 am #1544210

Discounted rates posted on their website or after our original 30 discount too?
If not, why would I use the 15 off instead of our 30?Nov 10, 2009 at 7:37 am #1544233

Use the 30% off, it is applied to the Sale price. I just purchased the 390x and it came to $66.50 + $10.89 shipping.Nov 10, 2009 at 2:06 pm #1544327

I just called inov 8 up and used the code BPL105 and was able to purchase 2 pairs of GTX 390. The web site is down for now. The price came to $60-something per. Thanks to all for the information. Good luck to everyone still wanting to get in on it. 508 480-8856. They are in Massachusetts so they might be closed for the day by now.Nov 11, 2009 at 1:45 am #1544468
Not sure if everyone read my original post.
But when the BPL105 code was announced by Inov8 they said it would be in effect until the end of 2009. So the only "hurrying" you have to do is if they run out of stock on a certain shoe you're thinking about.
Again, trouble with the web. Just call them direct and give BPL105 for 30% off.Nov 11, 2009 at 6:19 am #1544485

Does anyone know if these or any of their shoes run narrow? I am a 14 B?Nov 11, 2009 at 8:27 am #1544530

I think most are average to narrow…except I heard flyroc 310's are a bit roomier around the toes.
They definately are not known for being wide etc like New Balance for ex. EE's or wider.Nov 11, 2009 at 9:18 am #1544546

I'm struggling with sizing dilemmas for Inov8s too. I like what I hear about them, but the idea of buying shoes without trying them on just seems absurd. I live 50 miles from the only Inov8 importer/dealer in Germany; he has quite a good selection, but his prices are about double what I could get them for on sale in the UK. So it's tricky.
I've bought other stuff from him, and he's a decent guy who runs a good business. Specialises in adventure racing kit, and is one of very few local sources of specialist lightweight gear. I suspect it's Inov8's fault, not his, that his Euro prices are absurdly high, so I have no intention of insulting him by going to his shop to try shoes on then buying them mail order elsewhere. But on the other foot, times are hard, and I don't want to pay double price for a pair of shoes if I can avoid it.
I did get to try on a couple of pairs on when I was in London a while back, and my impressions were:
– Flyroc 310s are the same shape as my feet and would be a good fit for me in my normal shoe size. I have moderately broad feet and like wiggle room for my toes. I would have bought them but the shop didn't have my size.
– Roclite 315 – narrow.
Small points can be killers. The Terroc 330 for example is said to have quite high cut ankles. I have very prominent (and strange in other ways too, according to a physiotherapist who once looked at them) ankle bones, and many shoes – for example my Salomons and to a lesser degree my Five ten approach shoes – can sometimes dig in there and be very uncomfortable. Otherwise from its feature list the 330 would have been quite high on my shortlist, and if I had bought a pair sight unseen I probably would have regretted it.
A while back I saw a very useful article by a New England adventure runner who has used lots of different Inov8 models, with comments on all of them regarding sizing, fit and suitability for different purposes. I'll try to dig it out.

… no reference to the 390, but lots of good info about lots of other modelsNov 11, 2009 at 9:51 am #1544557
What size Alan? I have a pair of flyroc 310's in 10.5 that I have to sell because they don't work with my feets. I used them on one 13 mile dayhike.Nov 11, 2009 at 12:51 pm #1544612

Thanks for the offer, John. 10.5 US? That would be a 10 UK, which would be right. But I live in Germany, and payment from Germany to the US, and shipping the other way, would I guess be awkward/expensiveNov 12, 2009 at 7:12 am #1544747
I was shipped the wrong order. They only give an email address on their website and invoice that I can see. They have not responded to me since Tuesday.
Found the posted phone number and called to have them resolve the issue.
