"Just had a look at the new Inov-8 Autumn Winter 2011 workbook and there's a couple of new models that may interest people.
"BARE-X LITE 150
"Based on the new Inov-8 anatomical last with ZERO cushioning, 7mm midsole with ZERO differential. Weight 150grams (UK8). Uses a new sole made of rubber and EVA foam with limited durability of 300 miles.
"Obviously, this shoe is marketed as a pure racer.
"Pretty much same as above but with an additional 3mm layer of rubber bonded to the sole to increase durability (hence extra weight). This is being marketed as the training version of the 150.
Thanks to Terry the Tortoise, who confirms this is not the "performance" last that I tried before, but a truely anatomical last.
Hopefully this will turn out to be the "great option" from Inov-8
