Updates to Inov-8 Arctic Talon 275
- The Arctic Talon 275 has carefully aligned spikes on the outsole. These extremely durable spikes provide the runner the confidence to run and yet maintain the stability required for running in the winter time or on the most severe, frozen off-road terrain. The Arctic Talon 275 will not slip easily in any terrain or ground condition.
- The Arctic Talon 275 has the 4-finger polymer ProtecShank™ which gives it the same level of flexibility as the Meta-Shank™ and it aligns with spikes underneath to protect foot from the metal spikes in the OROC™ outsole. This allows the runner protection and comfort, providing exceptional performance in the most challenging winter or arctic conditions encountered.
Inov-8 Arctic Talon 275 size and fit
When it comes to sizing, the ArticTalon 275 comes in regular shoe length. Following the Inov-8 precision fit, this shoe has a close fitting that encourages minimal internal foot movement. This means that this shoe is ideal for narrow-footed runners.
