039;s Roclite 290 trail running shoe is an extremely versatile 4mm drop that Inov-8 have designed to adapt to your natural foot movement. This shoe replaces the Roclite 295 as a mixed terrain powerhouse that&
039;ll give you the confidence to push on over your favourite tricky local trails. Comfort is also a priority, so Inov-8 have employed new cushioning layers and kept the 290 under 300g. The Inov-8 Roclite 290 fits a little smaller than the Roclite 295 so most customers are going up 1/2 a size.
