The inov-8 Road-x 233 is a shoe which is great for runners looking for the perfect long distance racing flat.
One of the key features is the Dynamic Fascia Band which replicates and supports the foot’s plantar fascia ligament. Additionally, the low profile outsole has a high contact area and offers a smooth feel while the unique thin siping (zig-zag slices in the rubber) enables grip in wet conditions.
This shoe is anatomically designed to provide a roomier fit, especially in the forefoot. The inner lining of the upper is soft and comfortable and allows for sockless running, if that suits your preferences.
The 6mm differential is designed to stay low to the ground, while offering exceptional grip, even in wetter conditions. The cushioning is minimal, still providing great comfort and ensuring breathability and minimal heat build-up – something many runners will appreciate.
Overall, the inov-8 Road-x 233 is great for those looking for a moderate-drop, transitional shoe with a bit wider forefoot, firm midsole and one which offers great performance and durability.
