The Inov8 X-Talon 212 is afantastic fell running shoe. Featuring a Fascia Band to spring the foot forwards, and a metaflex groove under the metatarsals, the shoe is very springy when taking off. It uses a 6mm heel drop, and has a firm, responsive feel about the cushioning, with deep mud release lugs to pull you forwards through the muckiest of conditions. It is a very flexible shoe, allowing you to have a real feel for whatever ground is underneath your feet. The lugs are soft and sticky, so flex to pull the mud out behind you.
Great for: Fell Running
