76 / 100 based on 4 expert reviews

  • 86 / 100 | Gear Institute | | Level 5 expert

    Best for seasoned barefoot runners who want to run as light and close to the ground as possible while taking on the most challenging off-road terrain.

  • 69 / 100 | Minimalist Running Shoes | | Level 4 expert

    You will feel small rocks and pebbles wearing the TrailRoc 150 and especially if you remove the sockliner

  • 69 / 100 | Another Runner | | Level 2 expert

    Regardless of its disappointments, I still really like the Trailroc 150, but not for running.

    As with the 235, one of the biggest downsides to this shoe is how quickly the outsole wears. Inov-8 uses fairly soft rubbers on the TrailRoc.

  • The Invo-8 Trailroc 150 uses different rubber compounds in the outsole. The hardest rubber is strategically placed in the forefoot and heel for added durability. The lightest rubber is placed in the arch and toe areas.

The Trailroc 150 has a standard running shoe length and medium widths. It has a wider toe box that allows toe splay. It also has enough room in the midfoot area and a snug heel. This shoe best accommodates runners with medium and wide foot measurements.

The shoe features the Tri-C outsole compound that delivers maximum grip and enhanced durability. The soft sticky rubber is strategically placed in the outsole for maximum performance and grip on wet conditions. The Hard Sticky Rubber aids the soft type and increases durance and the endurance rubber compound increases toughness and durability in all possible situations. This outsole configuration is also used in some Inov-8 running shoes like the Trailroc 285.

As a minimalist shoe, there is no midsole in the Trailroc 150. However, there is 3mm removable outsole that can provide minimal cushioning without affecting the overall barefoot experience.

The breathable full length coverage feature of the Trailroc 150 is made out of synthetic mesh. It is thin, lightweight and durable. The lacing system offers the versatility of the upper to be snug and tight or loose and roomy, and the Anatomic Last is responsible for allowing the shoe to follow the normal form of the runner’s foot so it instantly provides comfort.
