Evening folks, just wondering if anybody had a line on where I could find some shoes I've been looking for?

Whenever I decide on a pair I like they're bloody impossible to find. I'd like either of;

INOV8 ROAD X-TREME 220

Mizuno Wave Ekiden 9

And also, whilst I've got your attention, opinions on which is better for off road out of;

Inov8 x-talon

Inov8 terraclaw

Appreciate the help.

They've got the trail shoes but I can find those, I just can't chose which ones I want.
Nowhere seems to have the road shoes though.

Assume you've tried the obvious places like Amazon? Also, there's that website that tracks prices on running shoes, that might help you find availability of your chosen model.

X-Talon are a well-established shoe (I bought them as an advance order in 2008 or 2009), I use mine (212s) exclusively for cross country but they are very popular at fell races too.
I don't have any experience of the Terraclaw, the equipment section of the FRA forums may be worth a look forum.fellrunner.org.uk

eL Bee's out of the game as I suspected so still at a loss...

As it looks like I'm screwed for the trainers I want, xan anybody recommend some minimalist, lightweight road shoes that don't cost the earth?

Got something to say?
