Inov 8 210 Review for Forefoot Running

Inov 8 210 Review for Forefoot Running

The upper of the Inov 8 210 is made of an airy, breathable mesh that also offers impressive inner sidewalls structured to provide a strong clutch when rope climbing. The upper materials thicken and is more robust at the toes to provide ample rock protection. What’s more important is that the toe-box is sufficiently rounded to prompt your forefoot to expand naturally, more optimally, which is going to help deflect impact and ensure more controlled sturdiness during forefoot running.

The wider-than-average toe-box of the Inov 8 210 compliments a wider foot, enabling the toes to relax, flex and extend naturally, which will help reinforce better foot step security during running.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
