Inov8 has introduced a line of trail shoes with metal spikes, the Oroc 270

I can’t see how these can possibly be good for trails.  We did away with hobnails a long time ago.  I am old enough to to recall the Vibram sole controversy when they were introduced.

REI sells Inov8 products.  Do you plan to stock these metal studded shoes?

Can REI use its influence to get Inov8 to stop selling these?  

Thank you.
