Product Review – Inov8 Mudclaw 300 Shoes

Trail running. Everyone seems to be doing it these days.

More recently, participation for the sport has steadily increased, with more and more road runners choosing to take to the multi-terrain routes, adding it to their training.

It’s great for a change of scene, rather than running the same road or path over and over again as well as adding that dynamic of core stability when taking on the uneven tracks, while offering a break on your legs, as the different routes take out most of the heavy impact that you may occur during on concrete.

Nowadays, flexibility and sustainability mean everything, allowing the feet to move freely while maintaining grip while our on your run. Inov8 have included Ballistic Nylon Upper to tailor that requirement, this offers that bit more elasticity without surrendering support and durability. Giving the feeling that, you know your feet are in harmony while on-the-go.

Now, there’s nothing worse or better, than putting your foot in a puddle or the damp environment creeps inside your feet. The sensation of drenched toes isn’t a nice feeling and the squelching that follows adds to a fingernails-dragging-down-the-chalkboard sensation.

A neat feature that is included in the shoe, highly thought of for the trail runner wanting to keep dry feet. The DWR Coating prevents the moisture from entering, maintaining a comfortable ride from start to finish. What’s also pretty cool is, the  Fully Gusseted Tongue, which blocks out stones and other debris entering – there is nothing more annoying than feeling something inside your shoe, the constantly niggle and you eventually, stopping to take of the shoe (even worse in the winter/cold) off to try find it.

Heel drops are vastly becoming an ‘in-thing’ with the latest running shoes, new models offer it, which promotes a more slicker run, keeping your foot in a solid position, even when you’re struggling towards the latter part of your session with fatigue or uneven surfaces and is included to the Mudclaw 300.

But Inov8 have reassured their followers and fans that the changes in the model hasn’t detoured them from focusing on maintaining the current feel of their trail running shoes range, particularly with the outsole, offering continuous grip and for those tougher climbs and descents. Plus, with the Metashank included, those all-important toes protected from each stride.

So, in a nutshell, the Inov8 Mudclaw 300 Offroad / Trail Running Shoes are great for getting out and away from the streets and roads. Taking the scenic routes provides a much more relaxing training run and welcomed break, especially if you’ve been a predominate urban runner.
