Watch an independent review.
The Women’s Inov-8 X-Talon 255 is a trail shoe designed to give you grip and foot protection on those off road runs.
What else might I need?
Remember running performance socks are just as crucial as a performance shoe. We recommend fuelling after 60 minutes of exercise, check out our range of nutrition for those longer training runs. We carry a range of salt supplements for those training for endurance events and that all important chafing gel
Back in 2003, inov-8 founder, Zimbabwe-born Wayne Edy, spotted a gap in the UK off-road running market and designed a shoe that took the community by storm. That shoe was the MUDROC 290 and it delivered the type of grip that runners had been craving.
Wayne grew the company quickly and entered other markets such as the USA, where in 2009 sales began to rocket thanks to a mountain running shoe that was adopted by the Cross Fitness community and worn extensively by athletes undertaking hardcore workouts in gyms.
Since then inov-8 has continued to grow globally, with the business now trading in more than 60 countries worldwide and the shoes topping hundreds of podiums each year.
