Running shoes offer a world of freedom like nothing else can, but both trail running and road running place tough demands on your feet and footwear. They need to be able to take you anywhere and everywhere while providing underfoot support, cushioning and protection so it's important to choose the right shoe for your running adventures. Whether you're just starting out, tackling your first marathon, or are a hardened fell ultra runner, we have the right running footwear for you.
Few people are lucky enough to live with the hills on their doorstep, which means many runners will have to take to the road rather than the trails. Lightweight road shoes from Inov-8 help runners to make the transition from traditional highly-cushioned trainers to a more natural ‘barefoot’ style.
When running over rough hillsides, along wooded tracks or across tussocky moorland, trail running or fell running shoes promote speed and mobility while still offering protection from impact and trail debris.
Low-profile sensitive designs keep feet close to the ground for quicker reaction times on changing terrain; breathable uppers are cool and quick-drying; and deep-grip sole units give traction on mud and loose surfaces. These featherweight trail shoes bring sports shoe fit and comfort to the fells.
