Inov 8 XF 210 Review for Forefoot Running

Inov 8 XF 210 Review for Forefoot Running

The sensory feedback you get from the razor thin outsole of the Bare XF 210 may help put in motion more balance biomechanics, which may help deliver real result that’s good for injury prevention. The soft, flexing outsole of the Bare-XF 210 is made of a sticky rubber material that’s more traction-oriented, providing dynamic grip when running on wet, unstable surfaces and on gym floors.

The outsole materials of the Inov 8 210 is constructed to reflect the barefoot condition which is incredibly helpful for kick-starting improvements in running form because the pressure-sensing and motor nerves in the foot can be more fully switched on, leading to enhanced movement awareness which in turn, may help produce a more effective forefoot strike landing 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.
