These shoes feature a graphene grip (G-Grip) for increased outsole durability and better traction (thanks to the 6mm studs with a wide contact area) across all terrains, from mud to wet mountain rock and hard-packed trails.
The midsole consists of two materials with different densities – the softer one (heel) provides 10% better shock absorption while the stiffer one (tip) 15% better energy return than standard midsoles. The hybrid tongue design prevents dirt from entering the shoe and the tongue from rolling.
Laces along the instep go all the way down to the midsole, securing the foot in place. The polymer reinforcement in between the sole and the midsole provides additional protection to the foot and moves with the plantar fascia. The front part is not reinforced in order to allow for a responsive push-off.

Today the world-famous brand Inov-8 was founded in 2003 in northern England. In a few months, its only pair of shoes gained fame with professional runners and even earned the "Best Running Shoe of the Year" award. Since then, the Inov-8 team has come up with several revolutionarytechnologies that have irreversibly changed their view of running shoes. Their shoes are lightweight, supple, great shock absorbers, withstand any weather and specialize in a wide range of surfaces.
