Based in North-East England, inov-8 have a philosophy to design product around the natural function of the human body’s bio-mechanics. The human foot is perfectly adapted to accommodate variations in ground orientation and, with each step, changes its mechanical characteristics from a flexible adaptive platform into a rigid propulsive lever.

Whether you are an elite athlete or a recreational runner, the inov-8 footwear range allows your foot the freedom to move and function as nature intended, without interference from the structure of the shoe. Whatever the terrain, however far over the horizon you intend to run, Inov-8 footwear works in synergy with the natural bio-mechanics of the body, allowing the foot to do what it does best.

The range offers different levels of underfoot protection (Shoc-Zone: 0 to 4 Arrow), varying heel to toe drop differential (0 to 12 mm) and different outsoles to cope with different terrains. By gradually reducing the amount of cushioning and differential in your running shoes, your foot gets closer to its optimum, natural position, enabling you to develop a more natural running style.
