Price Paid: ~$90
The solution most shoe companies offer to "off-road" pursuits is the same car manufactures use. Bigger, more robust and more durable and hence inefficient. All of the Inov8 shoes are built upon the idea that the foot should be allowed to do what it does and it should be about efficiency. Sure these shoes are not for someone who is just hitting the trails, but for anyone who is looking for a high performance oriented trail shoe for racing or training this is it.
Does incredibly well in most any trail condition. Once you run a muddy trail with these you will never want to run in an SUV like trail shoe again. They do well on hardpack as well.
Not a lot of support, but the shoes' low profile keeps the foot feeling like it is always on a balance. A pleasure to run down hill with as well.
