Comments: I wanted something to replace the Brooks Green Silence, which I loved, in my rotation. The Wave Musha 5s work as a racing flat but aren't quite enough shoe for training for me. These Inov-8s have filled the bill perfectly so far. I only have ~50 miles on them but with runs of up to 13 miles, and they have felt great. They do feel a lot less cushioned than the GS, and the longer runs have been on dirt roads, but they definitely promote a mid foot strike and have a smooth transition. One note--I ordered my usual size and they actually feel a bit loose, so only order a 1/2 size up if you like a lot of extra room.
