Don't you hate it when a favourite shoe, piece of kit etc. is discontinued? My favourite road shoe the Inov8 Bare-X 180 was discontinued last year, so, what stock that was left is disappearing now except for uncommon sizes, can't find my size anywhere anymore, I should have stocked up on a few pairs!!! I hope I manage to find another shoe I love as much one day! My current pair are still going strong, but I only wear them occasionally now, as a treat!
My Inov8 Road X-Treme 138's are very nice too, but, even though they're lighter, they still aren't as minimal underfoot as the Bare-X which has superior ground feel (no midsole and just 4mm of rubber between your foot and the ground), why on earth Inov8 discontinued the best road shoe they ever made I'll never understand!
