Inov-8's motto is that the foot should control the shoe; the shoe should not control the foot. The F-lite 300 shoe exemplifies this motto. It is very lightweight (300 g, 10.5 oz US men's 9), flexible and cradles the foot closely. That's nice - but is it anything more than a glorified moccasin?

I live and do a lot of my backpacking in the desert, but I LOVE the mountains of the west! I also get out to the east coast occasionally to backpack.
