Inov8 230's

Can anyone that owns a pair of 195's and 230's, tell me the difference in them? I've read the specs on both and understand the 6mm drop and slightly heavier weight with the 230's. Is there any real difference on your feet though? I have a pair of 195's and love them but found a deal on some 230's. Just wondering if there's any noticeable difference between the 2.

I don't know anything about the 195s, but I got a deal on 230s too and I love them. I'm working my way toward minimalist though so I don't know what they would feel like going the other way.

On your feet? No not really.

I feel like maaaaaybe I notice the lower heel a little. But it's a very little and as far as fit, comfort, and weight go, no difference.

Re: Inov8 230's

The fit/feel is pretty much identical except for the thicker heel on the 230. I personally prefer the 195's and usually grab them for workouts and wear 230's as my regular casual shoe.

Re: Inov8 230's

I have both and the 230s feel a little stiffer and I prefer them for heavier lifting. I can't really feel the difference in weight of the shoe. Next I would like to get the 240s so I can rope climb and not have to change shoes
