Dave just looooooooooooves shoes. Loooove loooove loooove. He's got more sneakers than his girlfriend does. And Inov8 is one of his favorite places to get them (sneakers, not girlfriends). In all seriousness, Inov-8 makes HANDS DOWN, FEET UP the best lifting, trail running, and OCR shoes on the market. Dave wears the X-Talon 200 and will never go back to another racing shoe. Extremely lightweight, world class traction, and a large toebox means your runs will be as comfy as you want to make them.
