  • Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    • Inov8 X-talon 212 Running Shoe Review

      By Mike on 5
      Ive had my pair of 212s for a month now and I can sum them up in two words pure joy. I love the grip, real grip the kind of grip that makes you seek out mud, wet grass and rock and conquer all. But more than this is the true feeling of (re-)connection with the ground. Yes running the barefoot way feels strange to begin with, but by the second or third run youll get it and nothing will stop you. Youll be smashing PBs and whooping all the way. Seriously, trail runners of all abilities you need these shoes.
      YES Mike would recommend this item

      By Barbara on 5
      Bought these looking for enough grip to run cross country races of 4-6 miles as I cant wear spikes any more (weakness in metatarsal area) and have not been disappointed. So far Ive worn them on two very boggy and hilly grass/mud courses and have enjoyed very reasonable traction and sufficient cushioning & support. A good and comfortable fit too, light but kinder on the feet than spikes, also easy to clean. Overall a vast improvement on the trail shoes I used for a previous race. Ive got the XC bug again!

    • Inov8 X-talon 212 Running Shoe Review

      By Steve on 2
      So near yet so far! I've ran in these for the last 2 yrs now and have given up on them. They're the best fell/obstacle/cross country shoe I've found. Last yrs model (yellow black & grey) had the same problems as the garish 2014 model. Shocking build quality. They literally fall apart from the inside. The stitching & gluing on the inside is virtually none existence. Meaning the slightly padded collar around the ankle comes loose & falls out after a few runs & washes. Grit, sand & very small stones get into the lining & tong speeding up the falling apart. Personally I expect a pair of expensive shoes to last more that 6-8 events/runs. Maybe I'm running to far in too bad conditions but isn't that what these are for?!?! I don't wear socks but as far as I'm aware they not meant to be worn with socks as they drain great without. If you've got the money to replace them every couple of months you'll love them. I'm guessing most wont so be warned. They were used for Rat Race events, Tough Mudders & pure fell running. Please inov8 get your act together.
