Catering to high-mileage trail runners and ultra runners, the inov-8 Men’s Race Ultra 290 shoe offers a high-performance combination of traction and fatigue-reducing cushioning for long outings.
The shoe’s nylon mesh upper dries quickly and offers excellent breathability. Strategic TPU overlays deliver lateral support and enhance fit without adding bulk or cutting down on breathability. A rubber toe cap protects against rocks and roots. On-the-shoe clips enable you to easily attach gaiters (sold separately) for keep debris from sneaking into the shoe.
An injected EVA foam midsole and a 6mm foam footbed cushion your step and help to cut down on fatigue. A polymer Meta-Shank mirrors the anatomy of your foot, providing flexible support beneath the metatarsals and runs the whole way from heel to toe. The Tri-C outsole employs rubber of varying degrees of stiffness and stickiness to maximize grip and a low-profile lug pattern to deliver confident traction on single track, hard pack, and even roads.
Sold in pairs and available in men’s full and half sizes, the inov-8 Men’s Race Ultra 290 trail running shoe has a standard fit that hugs the heel but flares at the toe box. The shoe has a moderate 8mm drop and weighs in at roughly 1 pound, 4 ounces per pair.
