INOV-8 UNVEILS WORLD'S FIRST-EVER GRAPHENE TRAIL RUNNING SHOE

The world’s first-ever sports shoes to utilise graphene – the strongest material on the planet – have been unveiled by British brand Inov-8.

The G-SERIES shoes are available to pre-order from June 22nd ahead of going on sale from July 12th.

Collaborating with graphene experts at The University of Manchester, the brand has been able to infuse the wonder-material into rubber. They have developed rubber outsoles for running and fitness shoes that in testing have outlasted 1,000 miles and are scientifically proven to be 50% harder wearing.

The G-SERIES range is made up of three different shoes, each meticulously designed to meet the needs of athletes. THE MUDCLAW G 260 is for running over muddy mountains and obstacle courses, the TERRAULTRA G 260 for running long distances on hard-packed trails and the F-LITE G 290 for crossfitters working out in gyms. Each includes graphene-enhanced rubber outsoles and Kevlar – a material used in bulletproof vests – on the uppers.

The world's toughest shoe for running the world's toughest long-distance trails. Revolutionary graphene-enhanced rubber delivers the world's toughest grip on hard-packed trails, while next-generation underfoot technology strikes the perfect balance between comfort and responsiveness. Materials including Kevlar – commonly used in bulletproof vests – give high levels of durability and breathability to the upper of a 260g shoe that is biomechanically designed to enable the natural movement of the foot. The TERRAULTRA G 260 – Designed so you can run forever.
