£125 They may lack Inov-8’s much-hyped graphene in­serts, but the Trailtalon 290 are a sure­fire win­ner of a shoe. They’re the most ver­sa­tile of the shoes here, and we’ve hap­pily used them on trails, tow­paths and tar­mac over the test­ing pe­riod. The multi-di­rec­tional 4mm lugs are su­pe­rior at shed­ding de­bris and pro­vide trac­tion in all but the mud­di­est of con­di­tions, and there’s plenty of out­sole dura­bil­ity. The lean 290g weight com­bines with the Pow­er­flow mid­sole and slen­der 8mm drop to give a swift and comfy ride on multi-dis­tance runs, even if we’d want more toe pro­tec­tion.
