We’re thrilled to offer a range of performance footwear from INOV-8 at all of our Alabama Outdoors locations! Less is more in the case of these excellent shoes. Inov-8 footwear is designed to alow a more natural running and workout form, letting nothing alter the biomechanics of the foot and body. Natural form relies on strength rather then over the top cushioning or unneeded support. The foot and body should control the shoe, not the other way around. Inov-8 products are lightweight, minimal, and functional over any terrain, over any obstacle, any distance, and at any speed. Each shoe is designed with the optimum cushioning and features for grip and comfort over the intended terrain – from rocks to dirt, mud to sand, pavement to the gym. Our buyers purposely picked only 3 models to carry at our stores, each with a distinct intent and function. Lets spotlight those 3 models and give a little information on each;
THE F-LITE 195
A highly breathable – very stable – low profile (3mm heel to toe drop) extremely lightweight (6.9oz) workout shoe perfect the athlete requiring a natural minimal platform. This unisex shoe is made for sprinting, weightlifting, rope climbing and intense gym workouts. Our crossfit go to model. We’ve also like it as a good looking everyday shoe to help strengthen the feet and legs.***FYI – SELECT MODELS OF THE F-LITE ARE ON SALE AT OUR HOMEWOOD LOCATION FOR 30% OFF!!***
This is your all purpose runner designed for those wanting a door step to trail head shoe designed to do it all. Minimal cushioning for road running, low profile tread pattern for trail running, and a low 6mm heel to toe drop for a stable and comfortable platform weighing in at just 10oz. One shoe to rule them all! This shoe is also ideal for those just getting into wearing a more minimal shoe, or those looking to start running trails but still put in a good amount of road miles. The upper is also one of the most comfortable we’ve worn.
Specifically designed for the riggers of tough trail running, this lightweight 10oz shoe can stand the test on the roughest trails over the longest distances. This comfortable and tough shoe sports a 6mm heel to toe drop for a natural running form, a meta-shank rock plate for underfoot protection, small widely spaced lugs for grip in the gnarliest of conditions, and a comfortable wide toe box for flex and support. Quite simply this shoe rules the trails. A true dirt runner.
THIS NEXT TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 4TH join us out at Red Mountain Park for our Every Tuesday Group Trail Runs as INOV-8 will be on hand with us demoing and sampling shoes for all to try out! We meet between 5:30 pm and 5:45 pm at the entrance of Red Mountain Park for 3 guided pace groups. We were cautious and cancelled due to the threat of tropical weather this week, but we’ll be back out in full force on the 4th of September! For more information on our group runs, our sponsored races, and all outdoor events check out our Alabama Outdoors blog and like us on FaceBook.
See ya on the Trails!
