Excellent light, fast, good looking (love these little
foot-icons on the heel cap) and well fitting crossroad shoe.
Can hardly wait for the winter to try them out under
ĎSiberianí circumstances in the Dutch woods. Ideal for
smooth barefoot-like running and flashy trials.
I bought these shoes specifically for Crossfit workouts.
They are fantastic! I have not seen any other shoe available
that is suitable for Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics and
running. They have shaved seconds off some of my PR's and I
ran my fastest 5k ever in them.
I use these Inov8s for Crossfit and road running. Their flat
sole is great for Olympic weight lifting. Running needs to
be adjusted because of the thin sole but this is good
because it forces you to run in a more barefoot style. The
only downside of these runners is they don't last very long,
the upper part wears away pretty quickly. In a sense they
are like Cream Eggs; only around for a short time but
absolutely fantastic while they are!
Used for the first time in an orienteering completion at the
weekend with no wearing in and they were superb. Dry
conditions but tough Dartmoor terrain and no problems. No
signs of wear after gorse and bracken and scrambling over
rocks. Yet to see how they perform in the wet...but let's
hope that a while before it happens!
I use X-Talon when running orienteering, and everyone who is
into orienteering knows that the shoes made for it are also
made for people who likes to give themselves a lot of pain.
X-Talon changes all this. Itís extremely comfortable yet it
gives you the support you expect from the shoe when running
in trackless ground. You have a good grip and donít feel any
risk to wrench your foot.
