X-Talon 200 Off-Road Running Shoes Black/Yellow
The Inov8 X-Talon 200 is a shoe designed with rocky off-trails and obstacle course racing in mind. It is very durable, quick drying and boasts many protection features making it a specific shoe for obstacle course racing, a sport growing in popularity. The shoe is lightweight, Weighing in at just 200g in a UK size 8, the X-TALON 200 is the first shoe in the X-TALON range to feature a 3mm heel to forefoot height differential, combined with a slightly wider fit. This means the foot sits close to the ground and is able to control the shoe, not the other way round. The toe-box is slightly more generous, allowing the toes to splay, thus increasing comfort, especially over longer distances when the feet begin to expand. Jonathan Albon, who was recently crowned obstacle racing’s new world number-one, was involved in its testing and development. The X-TALON 200 upper delivers outstanding protection and durability, with a breathable mesh forefoot allowing for quick water drainage. Further protection comes in the form of a rubber toe bumper. A secure mid-foot fit is enhanced by a new super-protective lacing system. The outsole boasts the famous 8mm X-TALON sticky rubber cleats that deliver outstanding grip over all terrains, especially soft and muddy ground.
