Unfortunately this item has sold out in all our stores and has been discontinued, therefore we will not be getting any new stock.

Thank you for your help. As they are quite far from central London, I emailed them to enquire. I'll let you know the outcome.

Would anyone know where I can find the Terroc 345 in a small size in London? All the retailers indicated on inov-8 website start around size 7 or 8 and I need a 4.5. Of course I can find small sizes online but I wouldn't buy trainers without trying them on.

Thank you John. A very late response from me sorry- I had forgotten I had posted this! Actually I returned my Inov8 boots to the maufacturers and after they had tested them out- yes they did leak- they sent me a replacement pair. So no complaints about the Inov8 team customer service.

I have thought about Brashers Superlights. But I'll how see how long my replacements boots last!
It's quite dry at the moment so fell running trainers might be OK for events and social walks- and still mild enough to get by even if feet get wet. Merino wooly socks help!!

And invested in Microspikes this winter- great for walking to work and back and in the Lakes over Christmas. Best buy this year!! I'll use them even when a doddery old pensioner going to the post office for my pension on icy pavements in years to come- or send the toy boy....

I found the inov8 lightweight boots gave me blisters, very light but far inferior to Brasher Superlight boots, a deceptive comfortable fit but let me down over 20 + miles

Advice on footwear is always problematical. Just find something that suits and then buy several pairs before they become discontinued. The only thing I found out is that price is not a guide to comfort.

I wear Roclite trainers, which seem to suit me ok, but other models of innov8 trainers don't. With so many shoes/boots you take a bit of a punt, they may feel fine in the shop but after 50 miles you know whether they really do suit you. Many years of trial and error (and expense), and as soon as you find a goodie - they change the model!! Matt.

These were the very pair I'm considering and this was my only reservation, being waterproof would also meen they hold the water in. I think I will give them a go, im told you can buy small gaitors to fit from inov 8
Thanks for your reply

Hi Robert, I wear Roclite 318 model which has a Goretex lining which keeps water out but also keeps it in if it goes over the top. I have found very good but I would say essential you try before you buy. The fit is the key ingredient. As with any lightweight gear it is prone to wear out sooner than heavy duty gear.
