Our VerdictTrails needing a shoe that can handle daily outings in the sloppiest of conditions look no further.
The giant 7mm lugs of the X-Talon 212 have worked to provide grip in the wettest conditions for years.
Developed in England’s Lake District which consists of muddy bogs, steep ups and downs, and nary an established trail, the X-Talon 212 provides just enough underfoot cushioning for its sub-8 ounce weight to manage up to a 50k distance.
Additionally, it works well on grass and sheds water well through water crossings.
Many runners love Inov-8’s minimalist and natural feel that lends itself well to faster paced running and forefoot striking efficiency.
