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.
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.Mar 13, 2012 at 1:49 pm #1853129
Silly Joseph, you forgot to post your affiliate link!Mar 13, 2012 at 3:26 pm #1853182
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.Mar 13, 2012 at 4:53 pm #1853238
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?Mar 13, 2012 at 7:21 pm #1853355

In for two pairs of the roclite 315. Tough to find the smaller unisex sizes sometimes.Mar 13, 2012 at 9:28 pm #1853424
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, http://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…Mar 14, 2012 at 7:44 am #1853552
Is the sale 2 days long, or end 2 days from now?Mar 14, 2012 at 8:49 am #1853576
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??Mar 14, 2012 at 9:34 am #1853604
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.Mar 14, 2012 at 10:23 am #1853636
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).Mar 14, 2012 at 8:53 pm #1853993
"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.Mar 14, 2012 at 9:24 pm #1854005

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.Mar 15, 2012 at 6:05 am #1854094
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!Mar 15, 2012 at 8:09 am #1854140
I could've went up a full size, these are still snugMar 26, 2012 at 8:45 pm #1859785
They sent me the wrong size, what is their return policy if I was sent the wrong thing?Mar 26, 2012 at 9:38 pm #1859802

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.Mar 27, 2012 at 12:16 pm #1860011
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.Mar 28, 2012 at 11:31 am #1860499
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.Mar 28, 2012 at 6:08 pm #1860700
I called and they will refund my the purchase amount plus shipping both ways/Mar 29, 2012 at 12:39 pm #1861052
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.Mar 29, 2012 at 4:44 pm #1861205

I got my Roclite 315 delivered last week, happy with this first purchase from The Clymb.
I'd say though there is no need to go up more than 1/2 size and you could get away with no going up a size at all.
In other forums, they say the size was changed from earlier versions. I'm a 10 USA and I ordered a 10.5 USA Roclite 315 and I'd say there's a little room there I could have got a 10.
Not worn them yet, waiting for a … trail walk… these will help me a lot as I've been walking in sandals and flicking debris under my foot, these feel comfy and enclosed but breathe better than a regular shoe.
