Claw your way uphill.

As its name suggests, the Inov 8 Women's Terraclaw 250 Trail Running Shoe rips and grips all kinds of mountain terrain. The Terraclaw boasts Inov 8's classic Standard Fit, which features a close-fitting heel cup for a locked-in feel, and a wider-than-average toe box that allows the toes and foot to splay naturally. 

Breathable mesh wraps your foot in sound comfort, while the synthetic overlays and protective toe cap add safeguards from trail-side obstructions like roots and rocks. The Dynamic Fasica Band (DFB) offers an energetic feel with each strike, which translates into a more efficient and faster stride. Additionally, the EVA midsole attenuates shock and disperses impact to ultimately provide a cushioned feel underfoot. Not to mention, the rugged Dual-C rubber is incredibly sticky for a stable feel, and the multi-directional lugs assure ample traction no matter the conditions.

  • Q & A

but not too large, very light!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9

I went down a half size based on previous review, and it ended up being too short, with my big toes hitting the end. As far as width, I would say they are average. Otherwise these seem like really great shoes. So impressively light!

I purchased the 9 (half size down), and should have gone with my normal 9.5

Does not fit according to guide

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8.5

Does well for hiking and trail running. However, these inov8 do not run like the others. I would say size a half size down from your original size. I couldn't exchange these out in time as I'm still traveling.
