Sitting in between traditional and minimal, the Inov-8 Road-X-Treme 188 is a low profile trainer featuring minimal cushioning and a firm ride.
The Inov-8 Road-X-Treme 188 offers a low profile running experience while retaining underfoot protection from the ground. A 6mm offset promotes a forward footstrike, and an injected EVA midsole provides responsive and resilient cushioning. The upper consists of a lightweight and breathable mesh and offers an roomier, anatomical fit to allow for natural toe splay.
The Road-Xtreme 188 is the women's version of the Road-Xtreme 208 men's shoe. It is a minimum feature, minimum neutral shoe intended for training and racing.
