INOV-8 Roclite 295 update?

UPDATE: The new 295s are in!  If you are reading this page, you probably want to check out our review, here.


I've been loving these INOV-8's Roclite 295s for trail runs.  They are light, extremely flexible, and have just enough cushioning to provide protection over miles and miles of rocks and roots.

Recently, however, they disappeared from Running Warehouse's online store - and have been replaced by an updated version, available for pre-order.

While they keep the same color scheme, these otherwise appear to be a very different shoe.  Running Warehouse measured the previous version, men's size 9, at 10.5 ounces, and the new version aat 9.7 ounces.  (If those measurements hold up, Inov-8 should relabel them as the Roclite 275 -- but the number 295 is right there on the toe!)  Running Warehouse also measure the prior version as having a 21 mm heel and and a 12 mm forefoot.  The new versions come in with a 17 mm heel and a 10 mm forefoot.

Beyond that, I can't find any information, not even on INOV-8's website (that is, unless you speak Swedish).  Hopefully they still feel just as good as my old ones!
