I've been looking at the Vibram Five Fingers for a while but can't really justify the retail price of 100 pounds or thereabouts, it seems ludicrously expensive and might reflect the lack of competition for such footwear rather than manufacture and design. I had a look on Ebay to see if there was any bargains to be had but a large majority look like genuine fakes, so I won't be buying any from there!
Now it would appear that Inov-8 are going to weigh into the uber minimalist footwear niche with these puppies. I'm not going to say much about them other than its good to see Inov-8 adding some competition to Vibram and continue to push the envelope with their footwear. But boy are they ugly!
With a retail price of £40 at Fitness footwear (quick review here), these might be getting added to the gear list for the future!
