Inov-8 Road-Xlite 155

Summary | Full Review | Reader Reviews | Gallery | Discussion

WHAT'S NEW? An injection-moulded rubber sole for durability and responsiveness, and 'Meta Cradle' technology on the lacing system, which allows the metatarsals to flex freely on impact.


WE SAY Part of a new range of semi-minimalist road shoes from offroad specialist Inov-8. This is the lightest in the range and its road life is only 300 miles. It's designed for those looking for a more barefoot running experience while still wearing a proper shoe, and to that end there is no cushioning, a barely noticeable 3mm differential between heel and toe heights, and a thin, smooth rubber outsole to encourage natural foot placement and strengthen the surrounding ligaments. Not surprisingly, our lab rated it lowest on test for cushioning and highest for flexibility. For speedwork and short training runs.
