The Inov-8 Bare-Grip 200 is a zero-drop, minimal soft ground trail running shoe designed for a neutral foot motion, ideal for racing and daily training.



The Inov8 Bare-Grip is a serious trail shoe for the minimalist runner looking for the ultimate low-to-the ground shoe on loose or soft trails. A zero drop heel-to-toe ratio and lack of a midsole promote a natural foot strike and the aggressively lugged, sticky rubber outsole offers plenty of traction on rugged terrain.
