This Inov-8 Trail Shoe Boasts The World’s First Graphene-Enhanced Foam

As you’d expect with a name like Inov-8, the UK-based brand is one that prides itself on its cutting-edge product development. For instance, back in 2018, it debuted the first-ever graphene-enhanced rubber in the form of its Graphene-Grip lugs, an addition that was scientifically proven to be 50% stronger, harder wearing, and more elastic than traditional outsole materials. Never one for complacency, Inov-8 is back with another game-changing graphene shoe.

It’s called the ‘Trailfly Ultra G 300 Max,’ and it makes for yet another world first — this time, a graphene-enhanced midsole foam. In practice, this means that it’s able to deliver 25% more energy return than competing cushioning technologies while also maintaining its performance for far longer. So, where most traditional running shoes will max out around 400 miles or so before they need replacement, the Trailfly has the potential to last double or even triple that time. And when it comes to the rest of the package, Inov-8 has spared no expense, fitting the shoe with a 10mm Adapter-Flex groove for extra flexibility, a Boomerang footbed for improved comfort, and, of course, a Graphene-Grip outsole for super sticky traction. You can pre-order them now for $190.
