When the trails get nasty, the Inov-8 Mudclaw 265 will take you where other shoes won’t. A deeply lugged, sticky rubber outsole gives you traction over the muddiest and loosest terrain, while an injected EVA midsole provides increased cushioning and responsiveness over other midsole materials. A 3mm offset will keep you up on your toes, so you can tackle the trails when the conditions are at their worst.
