Shoe review- Inov-8 X-Talon 212

The Inov-8 Talon 212 just came out and I've had the pleasure of running in it the past few weeks. I love it. This is a superlight shoe but has a surprising amount of substance underfoot and great tread for wet grass or damp trails. Without question it is a niche shoe. Good for someone who likes to run the trails in low profile, minimalist shoe or if you're looking for a racing flat for xc or trail races. I was able to wear it for a trail half-marathon in Tahoe last weekend and it was more than enough shoe for that. The fit is snug and secure and will work for the average to low volume foot. We have it down at the FZ so check it out. By the way, if you're ever after a great, low key trail run to travel to in the fall, check out the Kokanee 5k/10k/half marathon in South Tahoe. I went to visit my good friends Zach and Ellen (yes, of FZ fame) in Reno and we ventured up to enjoy a beautiful morning on the trails. Cheers-Teague
