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.
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.
