"The lightweight alternative to walking boots, the Terroc 330 is ideal for fast and light trekking and walking in the mountains and along the trails in drier summer conditions. This shoe has lateral and medial posting providing torsional support. Recreational trail runners have also taken a shine to this superb nimble and responsive shoe."
Enthusiasts in need of a new / spare pair should rush to Cotswold Camping. On sale for £54!
This description from the Pete Bland website http://www.peteblandsports.co.uk is probably more accurate than Inov-8 themselves who propose these as running shoes. [See below for my sorry tale!]
