With a rugged construction for protection from the trail, the Inov-8 Trailroc 246 features minimal cushioning and a firm ride. 



The Inov8 Trailroc 246 packs just enough foam underfoot for long miles on rugged trails, yet keeps a low and nimble feel. With a 6mm drop from heel-to-toe, this shoe promotes a mid to forefoot landing for a smooth and stable ride. The durable outsole uses 3 types of sticky rubber for excellent hold on dry and rocky trails.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Just an update on my previous comment. I've now worn them several times while hiking. On dry, loose surfaces, they feel much less likely to slip than my hiking boots. Also great on a rocky stream crossing. I walked through 2 creeks while wearing Thorlo hiking socks with CoolMax and my shoes and socks stayed comfortable all day despite being damp. After a few minutes, I  mentioned to a hiking partner that my feet almost felt dry.

Comments: Absolutely love these - both the fit and the color. I like them so much I just ordered a second pair so I have one pair to wear around town and another pair that I'm going to use as a replacement for my hiking boots. I have waterproof neoprene socks that will allow me to wear these while walking through shallow water without getting my feet wet. When I used the "show me how it fits" option, it suggested I order a 9 1/2 when I've worn 8 1/2 for years in numerous brands. I ended up ordering a 9 because I couldn't imagine needing a 9 1/2. I had to send it back and exchange it for an 8 1/2.
