The Inov-8 Terraclaw 220 is the lightest weight version in Inov8&
039;s Terraclaw series of shoes. The reduced weight of the shoe makes it the ideal shoe in the Terraclaw range for faster sessions or racing, with a balance of both performance and protection. The outsole of the shoe is designed to perform on a variety of differing trail conditions, with the positioning of the lugging allowing for the release of debris and grit, giving grip on every foot strike from short to long distances. The traction will work when climbing, descending and contouring. Technology in the shoe include: The toe cap is double layered, which gives optimum toe protection, the tongue of the shoe has a diagonally sewn lace lock which keeps the tongue in place preventing any friction. More efficient foot strike is ensured with a dynamic fascia band and met-cradle, which gives a secure hold in the midfoot.
