Inov-8 Mudclaw 300 (2015) Review



  • Relies on “natural running” for marketing (see: The Natural fallacy).
  • Believe of company is to “The foot controls the shoe, not the other way around”; yet have design features (eg Dynamic Fascia Band) that do probably exert control on the foot.
  • The research page on the Inov-8 website highlights a lot of research which is cheery picked providing a false balance. It has not been updated with subsequent research showing the opposite of what a lot of the older research shows.
