I know the Inov8 shoes. These are products for which there is a reluctance to take the step and that eventually you give up more ‘of a sole “!

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: instinctive impression

A product well done. A more distant look what you have used to see at INOV8. Finally, the Visual of this shoe is close to what we usually see in other brands.

His form seems to take into account the trend of the moment to know, give discretion to the toes. The box is deliberately broad.

The overall product width can slow down or destabilize those who possess very thin. They are really comfortable and very nice feet. They seem to have the advantages of a shoe designed for long kilometers.

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: conditions

I tested for 332 km the Ultra race 290 of Inov8. From the high – Savoy, you can imagine that I have at my feet one beautiful playground and on which there are a countless number of tests (mud, grass, underbrush, mineral, climbs, descents, technical, devers…)

I am not deprived me to enjoy. The shoes have tasted what they like and sometimes what they like less!

Inov8 290 V2 shoes: What I think

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: feet…

In my stride, I have the feeling of running with bare feet as they are light and comfortable.

The laces allow precise adjustment.

Be careful! I consider that it is necessary to take a size below of what you used to put on with other brands.

The toes are free and it makes a difference!

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: cushioning, stability…

Designers of course seized the importance of cushioning, but especially of the technical conditions that lead to it.

If the injected EVA sole provides comfort that promotes the cushioning, the shape of the shoe that offers intentionally box before spacious for an optimized use of all toes allows a darn efficient distribution of shocks and vibrations.

On this side, regardless of your stride, you need not worry to you.

Over the kilometers, feels protected below the feet. Technology Meta Shank provides this protection. What is interesting is that this defense alter in any way the flexibility of the sole.

With regard to stability, even once, the benefits mentioned above generate an interesting balance.

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: the hang…

For once, I see at Inov8 spikes are small and very close together. This does nothing felt adhesion.

Inov8 has more to do its reputation on the hook. I did different tests “to grip”.

  • A slope with a strong gradient: this situation requires the power of course, but the supports of crazy! uphill and downhill I was never put in difficulty by fleeting support. Inking admitted by the quality of the sole and crampons puts you in condition of dynamism.
  • A wet, technical mineral portion in mountain: here again, “it moves very little. I’m not going to lie to you, will always be very slippery areas very slippery. However, I notice a behavior securing support. On the dry portions, we’re stuck!
  • Wetlands see muddy: the outsole and its structuring have a good grip and allows to remove the sticky Earth in a satisfactory manner.

Overall, the grip remains an asset. The durability of the sole, the flagrant lack of wear points toward a sustainable use this shoe.

I would add that on a trip of about 60 kilometres, I found qualities windy above of the sole of the Ultra Race 290 remained the same from the beginning to the end.

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: the preservation and protection…

The airy mesh brings a perfect breathability. This inevitably leads to effective evacuation of sweating. The material is solid and offers a correct maintenance. I say OK, because according to my feelings and observations, I find that the shoe slightly (really lightweight) lack of maintenance on the side supports or portions in devers (what few shoes appreciate).

This is especially true when receipts are supported.

Fortunately, the construction of the heel of the shoe is a crucial role in this. Necessary to contribute to maintaining an effective lacing.

I met a weakness of the mesh in the delicate passages (branches, bushes…).

The windscreen stone gives off good protection. Notches located at the rear of the shoe allow to fix leggings (products sold in option)

Inov8 290 V2: sensations you say…

Very clearly, who loves the rising portions and change rhythms and support me, I have the impression of flying with these shoes.
They offer a very interesting strength and comfort, technical report. I’ve never been disappointed by the shoes of this brand.

Very important, as the days where I put the Ultra Race 290, I see no degradation and always feel very good inside.

Inov8 290 V2: his favorite courses?

The ultra Race 290 of Inov8 is intended above all to the long-distance trails.
Of course, they have perfectly his role on short trails and average distances.

In the profiles? She should be able to venture on any terrain.
However, I regard really efficient on rolling parts it even if she is doing very well on other aspects.

Test shoes Inov8 290 V2: final evaluations

-A classic look successful
-A remarkable comfort
-Cushioning flawless
-A very good grip
-A nice mesh and breathable
-Very sturdy and durable in time
-A generally correct maintenance, but who could still be improved for lateral positioning (devers…)

“I particularly like this model which is very versatile, adapts to every Stride and which is especially challenging on the trails.
