Inov-8 Parkclaw G 280 Men's


The ultimate road-to-trail running shoe, specifically designed to deliver hybrid performance. The Graphene-enhanced G-FLY midsole and raised 8mm drop give outstanding levels of bounce, cushioning and comfort. Beneath that, the Graphene-enhanced G-GRIP rubber outsole features almost 200 lugs per pair that deliver a smooth ride on the road and the world’s toughest grip on trails. A breathable engineered mesh upper, wider toe-box and BOOMERANG footbed complete a versatile shoe ready for all adventures from the door.


  • World’s toughest grip: Graphene is the world’s strongest material. Graphene-enhanced G-GRIP rubber delivers insane sticky traction AND increased durability, no compromise. 50% stronger, 50% more elastic, 50% harder wearing.
  • Hybrid traction: 98 multi-directional 4mm deep lugs on each shoe give a smooth ride on the road and aggressive grip on the trails. They’ve been shaped and positioned to improve propulsion at the front and braking at the rear.
  • Revolutionary foam: Graphene-enhanced G-FLY cushioned foam gives 25% more energy return. It retains its thickness and optimum levels of energy return for longer, helping runners feel faster and fresher over greater distances.
  • Longer lasting: Laboratory tests show that even when the G-FLY foam is aged to mimic extensive use, it still delivers more energy return than some unaged foams. Testing shows it still performs strongly after 1,200km – double the industry standard.
  • Even more bounce: BOOMERANG insole features hundreds of expanded TPU beads that compress and spring back for 40% more energy return – and greater cushioning – than standard insoles.
  • Engineered mesh: A more open mesh around the forefoot allows greater breathability, while a more closed mesh elsewhere, coupled with a heel counter, delivers a locked-in, supportive feel.
  • More comfort: 8mm drop (heel to toe differential) perfect for anyone transitioning from traditional road running shoes. Combined with wider toe box and a plush tongue, it gives a comfortable feel and ride. External heel loops make it easier and quicker to put shoes on.
  • Extra protection: Strong yet flexible toe bumper protects front of feet from rocks and trail debris.
