Minimalist feel, long-distance comfort.
Think of the Inov 8 Men's Race Ultra 270 Running Shoe as a minimalist, long-distance chariot for your feet—one that's capable of crushing grueling marathons and craggy mountain trails with comfort and stability. Featuring a reduced drop of 4-millimeters (compared to the 8-millimeter drop on its older sibling, the Race Ultra 290), this long-distance specialist offers lightweight performance with increased ground feel.
Built off a Meta-Shank III foundation, the shoe's shank aligns with the individual metatarsals in each foot for greater flexibility without sacrificing protection from rocks and trail debris. In addition, the compressed EVA midsole shields your foot from rough trails and uneven running surfaces, and its Race Ultra sole features a Tri-C compound that blends soft sticky, hard sticky, and endurance-strength rubber for serious traction over varied terrain.
