“A good all-round comfortable trail shoe for a great mix of terrain, from rocky trails to the road.” Wild Ginger Running, Oct 2019Excellent shoes“I’m converted. These are something completely different for inov8 as I’ve always worn a very low stack trail shoe. At first, I felt like I was wearing something a little deeper but you soon get used to the height and the cushioning really feels comfortable. I find the toe box snug so I want up half a size. Looking forward to getting some long miles in these shoes.”
inov-8 is the first – and only – brand in the world to use graphene (the planet’s strongest material) in sports footwear. Infused into the rubber outsole, it helps deliver insane sticky grip AND increased durability. No compromise.
Specially shaped 4mm studs pierce through top-layer debris or loose rocks and grip firm to hard trail underneath.
The 5th generation META-PLATE gives outstanding underfoot protection from sharp debris or protruding rocks. The rock plate also flexes with the foot’s natural running gait.
Comfort and Cushioning
POWERFLOW+ midsole technology gives 10% better shock absorption and 25% better energy return than standard midsoles. Together with the 8mm drop (heel to toe differential), this aids underfoot comfort and cushioning
Reinforced welded toe bumper protects the toes when running over rocky terrains, while the gusseted tongue minimises debris entering the shoe.
