When your workouts are far more than just jogging around the park, you need a shoe built to handle long distances on uneven trails. The Inov 8 Women's Race Ultra 270 Running Shoe is Inov 8's lighter race specific version of their core Ultra shoe. Have no fear, though reduced weight doesn't mean a lack of comfort. This shoe was designed with optimal cushioning for the long distance trail racer, delivering a custom feel. The Race Ultra 270 features a reduced 4mm drop, bringing you closer to the terrain on which you're running. A flatter than normal outsole gives stability, even when fatigue sets in. If your runs take place on loose or debris ridden ground, Inov 8's unique on the shoe attachment system allows you to easily clip on a Race Ultra Gaiter.
