Review: Inov8 X-Talon 212

As a frequent OCR runner there is nothing I love more than trail shoes. Especially good trail shoes. The type that grip mud really well so that I don’t spend my race looking like bambi on an ice rink!

inov8 are incredibly popular amongst OCR circles so when I was asked if I would like to review a pair from Millet Sports I was thrilled! They stock a wide range of inov8 shoes and I was lucky enough to be sent the X-Talon 200’s which are so incredibly cute in their black, yellow and red design.

In typical summer weather my usual trail route by the river has been perfectly dry and so testing them hasn’t exactly been extreme! But so far they are living up to the comfort stakes and will be getting packed to be worn at Spartan next weekend! Its weather I wear them for the Sprint or the Super?! Decisions!

With 68 pairs of inov8 shoes available as well as a range of trail shoes exceeding 200 different types millet sports is definitely the website to check out when you are looking for a new pair of trail shoes!

Delivery is free over £50 and returns are possible within 21 days if the items are unused and in original packaging. For me a returns policy on shoes I’m purchasing online is one of the most important factors I consider when I am looking to buy online so their policy would definitely encourage me to purchase from them in future. Generally the prices all seem to be competitive with other leading websites and delivery was prompt.

Overall I have been very impressed with the service from Millet Sports, they were not a website I had heard of previously but they are definitely one I will be returning to when I have worn out my current running shoes and trail shoes!
