Product Description

The Inov-8 Race Ultra 290 Trail Running Shoe utilises a flatter outsole which encourages a more stable ride, even when fatigue begins to set in and form begins to suffer. 2-Arrow Shoc Zone technology delivers superior cushioning and therefore comfort, even over longer distances. The Race Ultra 290 features an X-STATIC footbed, which eliminates the bacteria that feed on sweat, thereby reducing odour as well as stopping debris from entering the shoe. A mesh lining allows air to permeate the shoe and the feet to stay dry and comfortable. The Tri-C endurance outsole uses three different rubber compounds that deliver an equal blend of traction and durability and cushioning, meaning you can cope with the repetitive impact of ultra-running. The Race Ultra 290 features a heel to toe drop of 8mm, which is lower than that of traditional running shoes. The multi-finger polymer Meta Shank aligns with individual metatarsal heads to accommodate natural foot movements and enhance underfoot impact protection. The fit of the Race Ultra 290 is generous, resulting in increased comfort even when your foot has swollen during long-distance races; the shoe's upper has been carefully designed to minimise friction and enhance efficiency. Despite the enhanced cushioning and other features of the Race Ultra 290, the shoe still manages to remain incredibly light, with a men's UK size 8 weighing in at just 290 grams, making the Race Ultra 290 the perfect shoe for the long-distance runner seeking protection, comfort and agility in equal measure..

I have normal to broad feet and these shoes are a good fit. I wear a uk10 Asics and bought 10.5 inov8 and they are very slightly looser but I will be using them for longer runs so I'm happy with that.
The shoe it's self, very nice ride, good cushioning and I've only tried them on a gravel track but they performed as expected.
Tad pricy although all shoes seem to be getting more and more expensive.
A very good long distance shoe.

A solid pair of running shoes which protect the feet from the stones and abrasions of the trail. They fitted perfectly and I have had no issues with comfort. The only downside however is the surface grip which isn't great when running on or through degrees of mud but then again mud isn't the easiest thing to traverse. After taking them for a seven mile spin it felt more like fourteen miles with the extra slipping and pivoting.

Getting the balance right between a shoe that performs well off road but also can be used on road is tricky. My trail shoes tend to grind down too much on road resulting in quick wear and my road shoes have no grip off road. These seem to be the ideal middle ground with a firm grip and durable sole.
Due tot heir design as an ultra distance shoe I certainly expect them to last and they are a great fit.
