This past Sunday I traveled over to the Haw Ridge Park just outside of Knoxville, TN. I met with the owners of Fleet Feet Knoxville, Shahin Hadian and his wife Cheryl Hadian. Together we set up a wear test expo with Inov-8 trail shoes as a way to test the local market and see how the runners from this area liked or disliked (hopefully not) our shoes. This was also an opportunity for trail runners to sign up for an Xterra Trail Series that Fleet Feet Knoxville helps to support. Shahin and Cheryl also help lead many group runs and walks from their store and out at the local trails. This past Sunday folks were able to choose from two models the Roclite 315 and the Flyroc 310. Several runners were fitted and got to take the shoes for a test ride on the technical and beautiful Haw Ridge Trails. Upon their return I saw a lot of smiling faces and nods of approval. I believe we had several converts to Inov-8 trail shoes this day. Thanks to everyone I met and to Shahin and Cheryl.
