Inov-8 X-Talon 212

Built with Inov-8’s Precision-fit last, the X-Talon 212 provides you with a fast and lightweight experience on and off the trail. These shoes feature a wider toe box, which allows the toes to splay for more balance and more aggressive toe-offs. A sticky rubber outsole maximizes grip on any terrain, even in wet conditions. Patented Fascia Band technology carries your entire body weight and resists elongation of the medial arch when the heel leaves the ground, providing a responsive ride. A Meta-Flex groove in the outsole allows the forefoot to flex naturally with each step, while a close-fitting heel locks the shoe in position for a secure fit. To keep feet cool, these shoes also feature a breathable mesh lining and perforated, moisture-wicking insole. Flexible, lightweight and durable, these off-road shoes won’t let you down.

    • Runs a little small

      I'm a size 13 but it fits a size 12.5 foot. There's no additional toe room and my toes were curled. The wideness was great, the treads were great, the look was awesome but unfortunately it didn't fit very well while I walked around

      I immediately loved the shoes. I took them out in rain and mud to see how the grip was. My trail run was flawless.

    • Worked great on my mud run.
      Reviewer: Eric Wagner

      5/16/2016

      Just used these for a 10k mud run. 1. The size was true to my size (12 m US). I initially purchased the Salomon speedcross 3, and they were much heavier and too narrow. I have medium/wide feet. I normally get wide shoes (if they're an option) for comfort, though normally regular shoes aren't too narrow. I got the "normal" in these Inov-8's and they feel great. 2. I thought the aggressive tread/cleats would put too much pressure on specific points on my feet. That wasn't the case. I did a 10k mud run, and they were great. I had plantar faciitis pain the week before the run, to the point of limping, so I was laid up for a week before the run. I also, don't run very much, and was not in the best shape. These shoes gave me NO issues, all that considered. And the cleats did come in handy for some parts of the mud run. 3. They seem like they are solidly constructed. I will have to take them on more runs to see how they hold up over time.

    • Killed. my feet after 2 runs.
      Reviewer: Jeff

      10/25/2014

      I have been running for over 30 years. This are one of the worst shoes I have ever run in. They don't even form to your feet. I ended up with blisters on toes and skin pulled off the sides of both of my feet. The traction concept is great but the upper area needs improvement. I am one of the top over 50 runners in Ohio and I am going to be running a marathon around a lake on trails in Athens County on 2 November an I need a shoe that can stand up to mud, rocks and leaves to be safe.
