Inov8 Trailroc 255

I was lucky enough to try the Inov8 Trailroc 235 back at the inaugural Scottish Barefoot Run and I loved the combination of spacious toebox with super grippy sole. I would love to try the Trailroc 255 with a view to finding the perfect shoe for next year’s ultramarathons.

“Specifically designed for running loose, on rugged and eroded trails. Includes the most under foot protection and cushioning of the trailroc™ range so is suitable for high mileage training and racing. Includes Meta-Shank™ gen3 for increased underfoot protection.”

You may already have read the recent Trailroc review at ultra168.com which highly rated the Trailrocs. Now there’s yet more praise coming their way, this time courtesy of www.irunfar.com. Looks like the Trailrocs are destined for great things!

Inov-8 Trailroc Review

I was lucky enough to try the new Inov-8 Trailroc 235 trainers at the recent Scottish Barefoot Run and was impressed with both the roomy fit and excellent grip of the shoe. I was surprised at just how sure footed I felt ascending and descending Salisbury Crag and wondered how the shoes would perform on longer runs.

The guys over at Ultra168 have answered that question. Testing the 245 and 255 versions of the new Trailrocs, the reviewers came to the conclusion that, “like much of the Inov-8 range, it serves one purpose and one purpose well, to go long”.
