We're passionate about the technology behind our products and want to ensure you get the most out every mile you run or minute you train. Here's a breakdown of how this product is put together.


Years before anyone else, inov-8 pioneered the ‘Arrow System’, reducing differential from heel-to-toe, helping athletes improve their own performance.   Inov-8 products start at 3 Arrows. You can start wherever you like. 3 Arrows gives the biggest heel-to-toe drop in the inov-8 range, about half of that found in overly cushioned, structured shoes. As you drop arrows you tend to drop weight and cushioning, you tend to gain proprioception and speed. Reach Zero for a pure performance shoe – lightweight, stripped-back and fast. Dominate-the-race kind of fast.   Athletes not yet conditioned for natural running choose 3 Arrows. The same goes for those wanting a shoe for long endurance sessions, although we do tailor our products to each terrain. If you’re introducing stripped back shoes into shorter sessions choose 2 or 1 Arrows to ease your progress.



Standard fit offers a wide toe box, allowing the toes to splay when running naturally or lifting weights. Suits athletes with wider feet and those doing long sessions.

The Meta-Flex™ is a groove in the forefoot that provides a natural flex point in the shoe, allowing the forefoot to function naturally with each step.


META-SHANK™ Generation 3
5-finger polymer Meta-Shank™ aligns with each individual metatarsal for increased benefit from the ‘Windlass Effect’, whilst retaining underfoot impact protection and flexibility.


Mimics the ‘Windlass Effect’ delivering a kick of energy with each step, helping the athlete to run faster and more efficiently.
