I think us, as consumers, need to be realistic. We wont buy a heavy shoe and moan like hell when we have a super light weight shoe eat itself in a matter of months (me included, so this is in no way a dig). I guess we've driven Inov8 to produce 'race day' only footwear because we simply won't wear a shoe that weights over 350g.
Having said that, I'm about 100 miles away from retiring my 233's at which point they will have 700 miles on them; which is precisely ten times as much as my Bare grips had when they were replaced by Inov8 (and subsequently sold on by me).
