  • Description

    The men's Inov-8 Trail Talon 290 is designed for long miles on all types of trails around the world, this update to the Trail Talon series delivers the perfect fit, increased protection and unrivaled comfort. Featuring Inov-8's next generation ADAPTERFIT technology, which sees the fit of the shoe adapt as the foot swells on longer distance runs. The two-piece POWERFLOW midsole provides increased shock absorption and energy return.

    Superior trail traction

    Multi-directional 4mm deep studs, each with a wide contact area, provide aggressive grip, excellent stability and the quick release of any debris. Using three sticky rubber compounds on the outsole increases grip and durability. The hardest, most durable rubber is on the heel, with a medium rubber up the centre for increased traction and a softer rubber on the edges for grip and security with every stride.

    Cushioned ride

    Two-piece Powerflow midsole delivers 10% better shock absorption and 15% better energy return than standard midsoles.

    Increased flexibility and comfort

    Built around the natural anatomy of the foot, the next generation ADAPTERFIT met-cradle adapts to the natural movement and swelling of the foot on longer runs.

    Stay protected

    A new rubber toe bumper protects the toes from sharp rocks and stones, while a gusseted tongue prevents debris from entering the shoe. Stay protected II: On-the-shoe gaiter hooks offer a more secure attachment system that allows you to attach a ALL TERRAIN GAITER to the shoe.

    Improved fit

    The new lightweight, breathable upper material helps deliver a better fit and feel than the previous model.

    "Feels like slippers!"

    So far the trail talons have been really good! They are a wider fit and they feel like slippers. They are super light and super comfy. The 8mm drop means they’re really good for staring or intermediate trail runners who don’t have the calf strength for a flat shoe yet or just don’t want a completely flat ride.
    They aren’t waterproof, which means they drain well if you know youll be using them through streams ect. When I run the Spartan late this year it means that they’ll drain rather than collecting water.
    They have 4mm lugs which are good for the trail but when I ran a 5k on asphalt in them they didn’t get wrecked like a shoe with a deeper lug would. They’re kind of a hybrid. They are not a road shoe but if you need to spend some time on the road you totally can.
