Inov8 Mudclaw 265 – "Propels through mud-sodden, drenched terrain and comes back begging for more"
Lightweight and ultra-fast, the new Mudclaw 265 has been designed to give off-road running a "barefoot feel" with a super low-profile, 3mm Offset that’s perfect for picking up speed. One thing’s for sure, with a pair of these on your feet you’ll be at the top of the trail in double quick time!
Built to take you places other shoes fear to tread, the latest entry in Inov8’s award-winning Mudclaw Range is aggressively soled and boasts a strong but supple, water-repellent upper so you can take on the mountain when conditions are at their very worst.
The shoe’s revised upper is now constructed entirely from Rip-Stop Nylon for improved durability, although it retains Inov8’s signature TPU Foot Cradle to help the shoe hold its shape whilst providing added 'grab' and support when the laces are tied. A Precision Fit Last also eliminates internal foot-slide for greater efficacy through the stride and there’s a heavy-duty Forefoot Rand for extra protection in key high-wear areas.
An Injected EVA Midsole also delivers moderate but reliable, underfoot cushioning without infringing on the shoe’s up-tempo, performance fit. And, as you’d expect with the Mudclaw, the super-aggressive outsole delivers unparalleled grip on mud-sodden, drenched terrain. The 8mm Outsole Lugs give superior traction in the wettest and steepest conditions, while an ultra-tacky Rubber Outsole Compound gives additional grip on rock and scree.

The Inov8 Mudclaw has proved a reliable and comfortable shoe when climbing around the top of cliffs and the more rugged areas of Dartmoor, especially at night when you cannot always see where you are walking.
The grip is excellent and has been tried on scree, various rock and long wet grass without problem, the water repellent upper has been effective and helps protect the foot from gorse and thorns, the shoe is proving very durable and comfortable – a great shoe for those doing outdoor activities as well as running...
